Marielle's Pay It Forward

Part 1:
Pay it forward is a movie the all grade 8s watched. Its about a boy ,named Trevor, had a assignment for the whole year. The assignment was to make a possitive difference and put it into action. Trevor came up with an idea. he will help three people then ask the to pay it forward to other three people intead of paying back to him. then that three people will ask their three people to pay it forward....and so on... Trevor tried three different people, his friend, his teacher and a stranger but it didn't work very well.. in the end, trevor died by bullying and saving his friend's life. That Trevor's idea went around the world and people's started to do it.

Part 2:
What was your Pay-It-Forward act of kindness? My act of kindness was to clean up (rake leaves) the school yard with 2 other people.Why did we choose this activity? We chose this activity because we want to have a clean school yard by doing that, we choose to clean up, raking leaves.Who did you helped? Me and my Partners Helped the school's environment. What did you do? Well, first we had a practice cleaning..we cleaned my friend's house by raking leave in the front yard, then we went to our school with our own rakes and plastic bags and cleaned the small part of our school community.When did you do your act of kindness?  We did our act of kindness on November 4th, 2011, Friday, no school.

Raking Leaves

Raking the Frontyard

It was good and very FUN, but the weather was bad. Its was very windy and the leaves keeps flying away. I felt very proud because we had made a difference. Some teachers coming by and asking why are we doing this...they thought we got into a trouble.. or... someone will pay us by doing this. But we said that if someone will pay us we would say to pay it forward instead of paying back. The teacher and some people were very happy.

Pay it forward project was really good idea because it can help a lot of people starting with one person.Our act of kindness had made a small difference in our community.
