What is "Pay it Forward".
"Pay it forward" is a movie. The movie is about a student named Trevor. In the movie, Trevor has an assignment, where they all have to do is make a difference to someone and put into action.He came up with an idea! He explains to his classmates that he would help 3 people and those 3 people will help 3 other people instead of helping the 3 other people back. He called it :Pay It Forward. It's like this:
Marielle Manlulu, Daphne Amelo and I clean/raked the neighbors yard and some part of the school yard. We chose this activity because we want to make our school yard clean and beautiful. We helped the people that clean our school and for the neighbors lawn part we helped the owner of the house to clean their yard. We raked the front yard of the neighbors lawn and back, side, parking lot of the school. We did our act of kindness on November 4, 2011 at around 11:30 to 3:30. (no school).
Part 3We accomplished our goal of cleaning the school yard! I never thought that it would be fun! In our heads, we think that we are making a difference even in a small way, rather than thinking: Oh no! it's a lot of work. Yes, it is a lot of work but it's worth it. It was actually funny when we were walking, because many people passing by us are starring and they might probably thinking: "Why do they have rakes?" . While walking along Wellington to Sargent Park School, because we brought our own rakes. When we practiced raking the neighbors lawn, it was fun. And when we got to school at 11:30, we raked right away because we don't want to waste any time. Since it's Teacher's Inservice in our school, many teachers and other people are walking to the sidewalk to go to the main entrance door or to walk their dog or something. Most of them will look at 3 of us for a while and sometimes they would even stop or without saying a word they would smile, then they would continue walking. We knew that they will know even without asking that were from Sargent Park School, because we decided to wear our jerseys. 2-3 people stopped and asked what are we doing, we explained them about our project in grade 8 and they thanked us and even told us that we are doing a very good job and they smiled at the 3 of us. We finished with 11 big black garbage bag full of leaves. We forgot to ask them to pay it forward because we are too exited about doing this cleaning the school yard and planning on how we're going to do it. But, if i would have a time machine ... I will go back in time where we were cleaning the yard and ask them to pay it forward.
The idea of Pay it forward is important because when you pay it forward we spread it to all the people than paying it back and forth. Also, it gives you understanding that not only the people you know will help you back but they will help some other people that they know that need help. Our act of kindness made a difference in a small way and we are happy about it. We cleaned the school yard and we know that even no one see us cleaning it or even someone see us cleaning it ...someone will notice it. We are happy when they announced in the school that they are 3 people cleaned the yard and they thanked us for doing it. And those words might affect to the students that throws garbage in the school yard and we never know that maybe someday they will realize that they are doing something wrong. We are only three but we know we had made a difference! :))
