Oudorn's Pay it Forward

Part 1:
What is "Pay it Forward". To complete this part please edit and revise the paragraphs that you wrote after watching the movie.

Pay it forward is when someone is helping another person(s) by doing a act of kindness and soon that person will do the same to others.

Part 2:
What was your Pay It Forward act of kindness?
Why did you choose this activity?
Who did you help?
What did you do?
When did you do you act of kindness?

what we did for our act of kindness was donating clothes to value village and buying stuff to put in shoebox so we can give it to the people in Africa. We chose these activities because when we donate our clothes to value village other people can afford the quality goods at great values. Also
we donated to Africa because the children in Africa never got to celebrate christmas and never got gifts, so we wanted them to know what christmas is like. We helped the people in need of good quality clothing and helped the kids in africa. We went to value village to donate the clothes and went to dollarama to buy things to put in the shoebox. We did our active kindness on Sunday November 13.

Part 3:
How did your act of kindness go?
What Happened?
How did you feel?
How did the person or people react?
Did you ask the person or people to "Pay It Forward"?
How did they react to your request?
If you did not ask the person to "Pay It Forward" how come?

My act of kindness went great because we had a lot of fun going around to try to make a difference. What we did was donate clothes to Value Village and talked to the worker about pay it forward. We felt really great , because we made a difference by paying it foward and donating things to value village and sending a shoebox full of toys and others to africa for christmas. The children in Africa doesn't really get gifts or even celebrate christmas, that's why we decided to donate. The Value Village worker was surprised because she thought we wont be donating yet at this age. We asked the lady who worked at value village if she would pay it forward, and she said "after seeing what you guys have done, I will pay it forward".

Part 4:
Why is the idea of "Pay it Forward" important?
Has your act of kindness made a difference?

The idea of Pay it forward is important because we are helping people that are in need and telling other people about pay it forward so they could do it too. I think our act of kindness made a difference because now some of the kids in Africa will know what christmas is.

Hey Oudorn. Both of the ideas are great because some people can't afford clothing and most kids in Africa are having a rough time because of wars and poverty. When you donated those filled shoe boxes, kids in Africa will be excited when they get the presents. Good job on the video and post :)

Well done Oudorn! You and your friends did a really good job of wrapping the shoe box, putting lots of toys in it and donating to Africa that is most of the kids doesn't have because of the war that is going on. Also I like it how you guys donated your old clothing's to value village and donating it to them. GOOD JOB!
