Okay so first let me say that you will learn to expect this sort of random, spontaneous spur of the moment behavior from me. I randomly decide to do things, often against the better judgment of others, just because I feel it is the right thing to do. This is one of those times.

So first let me put this Disclaimer up here: THIS IS NOT A BRAND NEW IPOD TOUCH!

The IPod Touch 4th Generation 64G that I am giving away is USED; it has been loved on by me quite frequently for the last two years. There is however, nothing wrong with it.

There is in fact a very special story surrounding this IPod:

Two years ago I was rushing out the door to a doctor’s appointment with my gym bag in hand so I could head there after and I heard something drop. I couldn’t see anything on the ground and I was running late so I left. Later I pulled back into the driveway and I had my window rolled down and heard something crunch under my tire… Oh vey it was my IPod. After hearing what had happened and knowing how important music was to my exercise, the two women that I have the most amazing privilege of calling my best friends decided to contact a bunch of our friends online and see if they could rattle together the funds to buy me a new IPod. Sure enough they did, and for my birthday they gifted me with a 4th Generation IPod Touch. Our friends at the time were all playing a RPG Roleplaying/Combat game in Second Life at the time and my Character was a Vampire so the engraving on the back reads, “For Our –Vampire Queen- Happy Birthday! – The Coven” – which was the name of our little group.  I was truly touched that so many people cared about me that they got together and got me this present, and they’ve shared my journey and their support with me via that IPod for just over two years now.

For my Birthday this year I was given an IPhone 5. It was one of the Items on my “Things I need for my new Business” list and I have been blessed with some people that are always there to support me and most of my birthday presents this year came off that list. Jason purchased the IPhone 5 for me, Tom put $250 towards my ACE Certification Fund and my Soul Sister, Debby and her husband Colin put $100 towards my ACE Certification Fund. Thank you all, for loving me and supporting me, you are amazing people. So far I’ve got $350/$800 I need for the Certification, so I’m getting there slowly but surely.  \O/

But since I got an IPhone 5 for my birthday, it has sort of made this very special IPod unnecessary, and rather than just have it sitting around collecting dust on my shelf I’ve decided that to celebrate my two year Surgiversary on October 19th, I’m going to give it away.

Now I have been told this is cheesy, and that re-gifting is lame, but, I believe it is a kind gesture and that if someone else can use this IPod to help motivate them in the gym with music or it helps someone post-surgery out with keeping track of their protein because they can now use a program like Daily Burn over their Wi-Fi at home, well, then I just really think it should.
