What is "Pay it Forward"?
Pay it Forward is an act of kindness for people who don't expect it and expect nothing in return. Pay it Forward starts with you and the person you ask passes the kindness that you did on to somebody else, and that process goes on, and on, and on. It shows how little things can be something big for other people in ways you can't imagine. It can spread from a small area to a larger area and make change in people's lives.
What was your Pay It Forward act of kindness?
My pay it forward act of kindness was shoveling people's walkways, especially the older people's walkways, ones that cannot do it themselves.
Why did you choose this activity?
Who did you help?
I helped the people who let me shovel their walkways. I asked the older people first because they were for me more important..
What did you do?
What I did was shovel my whole street. The next thing I did was ask my neighbors if can shovel their walkways and if they said yes, I quickly shoveled their stairs and walkway. Some of them tried paying me, but I said no because I wanted to look like a really nice boy to my neighbors.
