"Pay it forward" means to basically do something very nice to anyone, stranger, or friend. It can be any act of kindness, like helping out a friend with some homework, or going to stranger that is in poverty and maybe lend them some money. Anything helps for anyone. So basically the idea is to pay it forward to someone, then that someone will pay it forward to someone else, this is basically like a long chain, so everyone helps everyone.
My act of kindness was that I went to the Christmas Cheer Board on Tyndell, and I volunteered there and helped out by rolling pennies, i was by myself. I chose this activity because I felt that it would be good and fun to volunteer. I basically helped out the people in our city that is poor, by raising and rolling the pennies. I rolled about over 100$ in pennies worth, I was there for 3 whole hours. I did this on Sunday, December 19/2010.
My act of kindness went fairly well, it was fun and also hard work. Well first we sorted all the Canadian pennies from the American ones, after that we put 50 pennies in each money roll. I felt very good to help out. Well the manager was very thankful for the help. Yes, I asked the manager, she said that it's a very good and smart idea.
The idea of "Pay it Forward" is that you can help, because every little thing can make a difference. I think that my act of kindness has helped because it makes it easier for the Cheer Board to roll every penny and to sort it, so they can give it to the people in poverty.
I myself think that everyone should at least pay it forward, every little thing can help and count!
