Part 1 - What is "Pay it Forward"?
Well, first of all it is the opposite of "paying back," but in a good way.
"Pay it Forward" is when someone tries and help 3 people, and those 3 people help 3 more people, and so on and so on. Everyone should try and change the world for it to be better, "Pay it Forward" is a great way of helping people and one's self.
