Ronny's, Alex's, Kenneths, and Devins Pay it Forward

Part 1

What is "Pay it Forward"?

Pay it forward is a random act of kindness that you do to other people. Its when you help someone do something they can't or doing something nice. By helping someone a little, your really doing a lot. Your influencing the person you helped to do the same which goes in a never ending chain. As Trevor in the movie, "Pay it forward" said,

"You see, I do something real good for three people. And then when they ask how
they can pay it back, I say they have to Pay It Forward...to three more people. Each. So, nine people get helped. Then those people have to do twenty-seven." He turned on the calculator, punched in a few numbers. "Then it sort of spreads out, see, to eighty-one, then two hundred forty-three, then seven hundred twenty-nine, then two thousand, one hundred eighty-seven. See how big it gets?"

Part 2

What was your Pay It Forward act of kindness?

We put candy in people mail boxes with notes attached.

Why did you choose this activity?

Because it was Christmas season, we decided to give people candy so we could brighten up their holidays.

Who did you help?

We helped lots of people, we put bags in around 20-30 houses.

What did you do?

We randomly chose a street in the neighbourhood and put candy in bags with little thank you notes saying "Pay it Forward from SPK kids" then put them in peoples mailboxes.

When did you do you act of kindness?

We did our act of kindness on the 7th of December.

Part 3

How did your act of kindness go?

It went alright but our fingers were freezing by the time we were done.

What Happened?

Nothing out of the ordinary happened but we did meet some people on the street like people from UPS or the mailman. We gave them a bag aswell.

How did you feel?

I felt good for helping people other then myself because I haven't really done anything like this before and I liked the feeling I may have helped someone. I would have felt warm inside if it wasn't so COLD outside.

How did the person or people react?

There wasn't really anyone we could get a reaction from other then the postman and UPS guy. They gave us a smile, thanked us, and went on his way.

Did you ask the person or people to "Pay It Forward"?

Not really, but we put it on the notes attached to the bags.

Part 4

Why is the idea of "Pay it Forward" important?

It is important because not many people help other people, making some people feeling lonely and unapreciated. People like it when you help them.

Has your act of kindness made a difference?

I hope our act of kindness did help someone become cheerful or happy.

Don't forget to pay it forward!
