Ace's Pay it Forward

What is "Pay It Forward"?
I think that pay it forward is a routine that 1 person has started and it keeps on getting passed on from 1 person to another. Pay It Forward, is when YOU help someone out or do a good deed not because someone told you to, but because you want to. Then they Pay It Forward then it just keeps on growing.

What was your Pay It Forward act of kindness?
Since our group was quite large, we chose to do a few things. One of our acts of kindness was donating. We also helped out some of the people we know. We babysat foster children and lastly we raked a backyard for free.

Why did you choose this activity?
We chose theses activities because we wanted to help out people who are less fortunate than us and just to make people smile (: .

Who did you help?
When we donated, we probably helped out children and other families who are in need of help. We helped Elijah's grandma get some rest from taking care of the 4 foster children. Lastly we helped out eli's auntie and uncle.

What did you do?
Our group had donated canned goods, clothing, toys, and books to Winnipeg Harvest and Value Village. Another thing we did is that we babysat Elijah's grandma's foster children for about an hour. The kids that we took care of are named Rihanna, Breayon, Monique, and Sterling. The last thing we did was that we raked elijah's auntie and uncles backyard for free.

When did you do you act of kindness?
We did our act of kindness on Sunday, November 13 2011.

How did your act of kindness go?
Our act of kindness turned out to be great. We managed to put smiles upon peoples faces.

What Happened?
On Sunday, November 13 Eli, Joseph, Mikey, Adrian, Terence, Hendrix and I, decided to help out and pay it forward. The 7 of us gathered a bunch of clothes, food, and toys to donate. First, we tried Winnipeg Harvest, but it was closed. So we went to Value Village and we donated the clothing and toys. The man who was at the door to take in the donations was surprised and happy. We passed on the message to Pay It Forward and he agreed. After, we went to another Winnipeg Harvest to donate the canned goods that we gathered. After wards, we went to eli's grandma's house to baby sit her 4 foster children named, Rihanna, Breayon, Monique and Sterling. We read to them, watched television with them, and also play board games with them. Eli's grandma was very happy. Lastly, we went to another relative of eli's and we raked their backyard for them, it started snowing a lot so it was fun. They were also very happy and proud.

How did you feel?

I felt very proud of us because we passed on the pay it forward message and that we went out and spent our time helping others.

How did the person or people react?
They were really surprised and happy that us teenagers were doing these kinds of things to help others.

Did you ask the person or people to "Pay It Forward"?
Yes, we did ask 1 very young 'pogi' Filipino gentleman to pay it forward and he kindly agreed.

How did they react to your request?
To me, it seemed like he thought ''Sure why not?''

Why is the idea of "Pay it Forward" important?
Pay It Forward is important because the world goes 'round because of us, so if 1 person chooses to make a difference and pass on the message. More and more people would be involved in Pay It Forward and everyone would be helping each other.

Has your act of kindness made a difference?
Yes, i do believe that our act of kindness had made a difference. Even though it may be a small deed, it still helps others. Just as simple as cleaning up the community with a couple of friends. If all of us participate and are committed, We CAN make a Difference.

Congratulations Ace on your great achievements with your pay it forward act of kindness! Your act of kindness were several things and all of them were unique in their own way. In my opinion I think that your acts were very well planned. Considering how you guys did not only do one but do four to five. Your video was well thought of. And it was quite interesting. And even the smallest acts of kindness can and will make a difference in the world. Keep on doing these small acts and soon you'll become a one great global citizen. Keep on becoming a difference maker!
