What is Pay it Forward?
It is a random act of kindness that you do to 3 people. You tell them to Pay it Forward, then they will Pay it Forward to 3 other people. It can get very big. You can just say hi or just do a little good deed like picking something up for someone, and it can make there day. If you think about it, you might be able to change the world with one good deed. I also think that one person CAN changed the world. And I also think that you can make yourself a better person by thinking of others instead of always yourself.
What was your Pay it Forward act of kindness? Me, Kim, Christine, and Caitlin gave the patients of the Childrens Hospital goody bags that have little toys and candies in them. Abby, Razel, and I also donated books and toys to them.
Why did you choose this activity? We chose this because we knew that some children in the hospital would be stuck in the hospital during the holidays probably sick. Some of them probably wouldn't be able to receive a gift. So we gave the books, toys, and goody bags to cheer them up.
Who did you help? We helped the children at the hospital and maybe even the hospital itself.
What did you do? We gave goody bags, toys, and books to the children in the Children's Hospital.
When did you do your act of kindness? We did it last Monday during the lunch hour.
How did your act of kindness go? It went very well, the lady who accepted the gifts was very happy and she thanked us.
What happened? I told her that we were donating the toys, we told her that it was from us for a project. She thanked us, she was about to redirect us to Child Life Department, but then they weren't there so she accepted it for them. We also left a note for them.
How did you feel? I felt kind of nervous at first, then after I felt proud and happy that we made a bunch of children happy.
How did the people or person react? She reacted really happily and she was very thankful.
Did you ask the people or person to Pay it Forward? I did, but then she directed us to the Child Life Department but they weren't there so we didnt get a chance.
How did they react to your request? They couldn't...
If you did not ask the person to Pay it Forward how come? Because she was busy and the person we were supposed to be talking to was not there.
Why is the idea of Pay it Forward important? Because we can make people more happy and make the world a better place. Its important because if no ones gonna be a good person, who is?
Has your act of kindness make a difference? I really don't know, but i hope so.
