Pay it Forward started with a boy named Trevor. He thought that if he could help 3 other people, those 3 could help another 3 people, and so on instead of owing them. It's like a chain.
Our act of kindness started this weekend where we were helping out my mom and dad with Jackie. We decided to take care of her for a couple of hours. Also, we spread the word about Pay it Forward, so that others could pitch in too! We chose taking care of Jackie because I thought my parents should have a little quality time together, since they don't have much of that now a days.
Our act of kindness went pretty well. I honestly thought it was going to be hard taking care of her. But with more than two hands, we did a good job entertaining her, feeding her and even changing the surprise in her diapers. When I asked my mom if we could take care of Jackie she was very surprised and happy at the same time! Out of all the things we could've done, we decided to help her and my dad. She was very thankful :) When we were handing out cards, we did not ask people to pay it forward, but we did tell people what we're doing and hoped that they would join us too!
This idea is important because,
Just one person can make a difference in the world!
