What was your pay it forward act of kindness?
Raquel, Krystal, Elissa and I handed out christmas cards and candy to people.
Why did you choose this activity?
We chose this activity because we thought it was the best way to spread the word about pay it forward, and explain to people how important it is.
What did you do?
Raquel, Krystal, Elissa, and me bought 70 christmas cards and wrote inside of each one, saying what pay it forward was, and asking them if they could please pay it forward. Then we went out onto my street and put some of the cards in mailboxes and on car windshields. After that we went to polo park and handed some out to the costumers and workers there.
When did you do this random act of kindness?
On sunday we bought and wrote on the cards, then on monday after school we handed them out.
How did your random act of kindness go?
It went very well, and the people and workers were very thankful
The people asked us why we were doing this, and we told them its an assignment from sargent park school, and its a random act of kindness.
How do you feel?
When we first started doing it , we felt nervous and scared what people would say, and if they didn't accept the card. But afterwards we started feeling really proud of our selfs because of what we did, and how happy we made people.
How did the people react?
As it shows in the video, they were really really thankful and we made them really happy.
Did you ask the people to pay it forward?
Yes we did, and we even wrote it on the card.
How did they react to your request?
They said that they will for sure pay it forward, and they thanked us.
Why is the idea of pay it forward important?
Because if one person does something for 3 people , and those three people do it for another three people it could spread all over the world.
Has your act of kindness made a difference?
Yes, I think it has because we handed out about 70 cards saying to pay it forward, and whats 70 multiplied by three? 73 x 3= 210. So if all those 70 people did something kind for 3 people each , then 210 people will know about pay it forward and they will pay it forward too.
