Justin M, Riemer M, and Noel R's Pay It Forward !

Part 1 - What does Pay it forward the movie mean to you?

- The movie is a very touching. During the movie or after the movie, it gives people a feeling wanting to help. Trevor came up with an idea to help 3 people , and those three people would help another 3 people and so on. That is a great way to help the world, but there is a lot of other ways. He even gave up his life to help. After watching the movie, it actually got me thinking about what I could do to help. It gave me a gushy feeling inside that's makes me want to help people. He did it for the unfortunate, and just to help the world become a better place.

Part 2
What was your Pay It Forward act of kindness?
Why did you choose this activity?
Who did you help?
What did you do?
When did you do you act of kindness?

Our act of kindness was giving clothes to salvation army so the poor can have clothing. We chose this act of kindness because we had extra clothes that weren't going to be used so we thought of giving it away also we saw a lot of homeless people that are cold and begging for money and we thought that giving them clothes was a good way to donate. We helped the poor and the homeless, we gave them clothes so they could keep warm and have clothing. We did our act of kindness on December 8, we did it late because my mom (Justin's) was busy so we told her it was due the next day.

This video got us inspired to help the cold and homeless.

First video- Us at Salvation Army , and my mom has no idea what shes doing with the camera.

Second Video - Showing what we brought.

Part 3
How did your act of kindness go?
What Happened?
How did you feel?
How did the person or people react?
Did you ask the person or people to "Pay It Forward"?
How did they react to your request?
If you did not ask the person to "Pay It Forward" how come?

Our act of kindness went great. The people there were glad we brought things. We walked in with a lot of garbage bags full of clothes and the girls working there said " aw, you guys brought things in" We felt awesome giving away stuff and giving to the unfortunate. When we were walking out there was a poor person near the door and asked for money , and i gave him 2 dollars. I know, its a lot. I did not ask the people to "pay it forward" but we told them about the idea. All they said was " Oh ". We didn't ask because we completely forgot too, we were thinking about all the donations.

Part 4
Why is the idea of "Pay it Forward" important?
Has your act of kindness made a difference?

The idea of Pay it Forward is important because we have to sometimes think of people before ourselves. We have to sometimes give and not ask for something in return. Also for the unfortunate that have nothing and we have to provide them with something so they could survive in this cruel world.Our act of kindness has made a big difference, giving clothes is a good way to pay it forward. Now some people wont freeze to death in the winter. And I think people watching us give stuff away makes them want to "Pay it Forward".
