Paying It Forward

Sunday, January 4, 2009
For my act of kindness, I'm thinking of helping the people in need. Some things that I thought of doing is to shovel snow in people's yards, help the elderly, serve food to the homeless, and donate clothes to the Salvation Army. I would go to my neighbor's yard, go to an old folks home, and the Salvation Army. I would do this during my winter break.

Well what happened when I was doing Pay It Forward, I made pamphlets explaining what's pay it forward, who started it, and why should you pay it forward. It took so much time and effort. It was very, very cold when I went out handing out the pamphlets, but it felt good handing out the pamphlets that I made and thinking that I helped make a difference by spreading the message. I never saw how the person would've reacted. I wish I could have saw the smile on their face thinking that they would actually try to help. I never got the chance to ask if they are involved in pay it forward because I just left the pamphlet in their mailbox.

I think that one person can make a very big difference. If ONE PERSON really took this " Pay It Forward " and put it into action, it will really make an impact on our world.

    Chelle, good job. Like Hanbit, I like the pamphlet idea. I wish I came up with that idea, might have been easier for my cards. ._. Anyway, I think you're idea was very creative, and it was very smart to stick together as a group with Abby, Carrie, Arielle, Alyanna, and Tracy. It must have made it easier and funnier for you to hand out and make those pamphlets. I liked how you explained what you were doing, and why you were doing it. Good job!
