Gordon, Bruce, Warren, and Jomari's Pay it Forward

What is "Pay it Forward" in your opinion?
In my opinion "Pay it Forward" is really anything you do to help someone out, because the point of "Pay it Forward" is to help someone out with something just to help them out, not because they asked you or because you need to make money but because its the right thing to do. Its like when someone volunteers at an old
folks home, most of the time people do it because they like to help others with
things they can't do by them selves not because they have to but because they want to.

What was your Pay It Forward act of
The act of kindness that we did was put Christmas cards in peoples mailboxes and even hand a few out to people or on cars windshields.

Why did you choose this activity?
We chose this activity because we felt that everyone wants to be wished a Merry Christmas.

Who did you help?
We helped depressed people because for some people Christmas can be very sad if you have no one to spend it with and even if you don't know who did it, it feels good to know that someone out there wants you to have a Merry Christmas.

When did you do you act of kindness?
We did our act of kindness the second week of the assignment so that we could hand out the cards as close to Christmas as possible.

How did your act of kindness go?
Our act of kindness went well we managed to hand out almost all of the cards and the few people we actually handed cards out to seemed very happy to have been wished a Merry Christmas.

What Happened?
The hand outs went well and the few we placed on card windshield some times had to be put on one or two more times but nothing other then that went wrong.

How did you feel?
I felt good because when I saw how happy some of the people we gave cards to seemed it made me feel like I made someone have a better holiday.

How did the person or people react?
One person, the woman that works at Ashcroft was very happy and thanked us for wishing her a Merry Christmas.

Did you ask the person or people to "Pay It Forward"?
No we did not ask the people to "Pay it Forward".

If you did not ask the person to "Pay It Forward" how come?
Because we had more letters to hand out and not much more time so we wished them a Merry Christmas once more and headed on our way.

Why is the idea of "Pay it Forward" important?
Because it gives people a reason to help others, most people won't help someone else unless you give them a reason so "Pay it Forward" is kind of like a charity in the way that it give people a reason and way to help others less fortunate.

Has your act of kindness made a difference?
Well we won't know how it affected most people but for the people that we directly gave the cards to I think that they might feel more important or like someone cares more about them then they thought. So I think we made a difference even if it was a small difference.

So take what we did and think of your own way to help other people without being asked or being rewarded with anything other then that good feeling you get when you do a good deed.

A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.
-Charles Darwin
