For me, Pay It Forward means doing something good for other people without expecting anything back from them. That person then ask three other people to do something good to other people. It then multiplies and will spread through our world, so good changes in everybody's lives will happen.
With my group, Kathryn and Trish, we chose to babysit for our Pay It Forward act of kindness. We chose to babysit because we like kids and we really enjoy taking care of them even though it's a bit frustrating. My group helped Kathryn's cousin by babysitting her kids named Alaine, Allyana, and Alex. We danced, played (peek-a-boo and laptop), sang, drew, fed, and made sandwiches with them. We did our act of kindness on December 14, 2010.
Our act of kindness went pretty good. They were also happy being with us and
Alaine, the kid I was babysitting, asked me to draw something for her as a
souvenir. I felt really happy because it's fun to be around them to lighten their
mood and cheer them up. It's so fulfilling to me. Their parents were very thankful
on what we did and that's the time we told them to 'Pay It Forward'. They were
surprised that us young kids would such thing to make a difference.
The idea of Pay It Forward is important because it could make a difference on
someone's life. Our world could be better if we help each other and keep on
paying it forward. I think our act of kindness somewhat made a difference
because the mother of the kids we babysat attended a meeting. If she will not
attend that meeting, she would not know what is it called for and her boss might
get mad at her. Overall, Pay It forward is an important project for students like
me, to expose ourselves on helping other people.
HAVE YOU PAYED IT FORWARD YET?
IF NOT, DO IT NOW!
