Part 1"Pay It Forward" is a movie that all grade eights had to watch. In this movie, a boy named Trevor had to come up with a way to make a difference in the world for a social studies project he had to do for school.

For my act of kindness my friend Riley and I baked cookies and rice crispies for fire fighters. I chose to do this because they are always busy helping people so I thought they would appreciate it if they got a brake. I helped the fire fighter by giving them a brake. I did my act of kindness on November 13, 2011
I thought that my act of kindness went good because they seemed really happy when we gave them the cookies and rise crispies. What happened was
we came there on November 13 and called down the whole crew down to listen to what we had to say. After that we gave them the cookies. They were really nice so they gave is a tour of the fire station. I felt really good knowing that we made a difference because we knew by doing so it would make a bigger difference. the fire fighters reacted with satisfaction and generosity.
The idea of "Pay it Forward" is very important because it is showing that even you can make a difference. My act of kindness has made a difference because now the fire fighters will pay it forward by saving the lives of people.
