Pay It Forward
Pay it forward is a movie that we grade 8 had to watch. The movie is about a kid named Trevor that his class was asked to think an idea that could change the world and put it into an action.So Trevor's idea was to help three people that but it has to be hard something that they cant do by there selves and they have to do it by three other people so it will be like a big chain .Instead of getting something nice in return they have to pass the act of kindness to other people .It is like starting with me and passed on to other people so it gets larger and larger .It was possible that one small idea actually made a large difference in the world and even now the movement is still going on we could make a difference by doing something kind to others or just paying it forward

Our act of kindness was giving note cards,candy,chocolate to our neighborhood .We did this act of kindness because if someone was having a really bad day or something tragic really happened by that card we could make them cheer up by complimenting them.We also mention in the card what pay it forward means and how they could the participate in the movement by just being kind and generous to others .We wanted to spread the phrase Pay it forward not just in our school we want to spread all around Winnipeg or maybe in the world .We did our act of kindness on November 8,2011 on a Tuesday after school .We all could make a huge difference in this world by just paying it forward or doing a act of kindness in someones life and remember it starts with you .PAY IT FORWARD

In my opinion it think our act of kindness went well because when we were mailing cards trough out our whole neighborhood nothing went wrong and it was just perfect and we had a lot of fun and excitement while we were handing out cards in mailboxes. I felt great handing all our cards and goodie bags to the houses because i know we were making a difference and doing an act of kindness to someones life. We did not see the peoples reaction to the note but we hope that that note cheered them up and we really hope that they pay it forward .

In my opinion the Pay it forward means really important because it means doing something nice to others with nothing in return that means generosity, kindness, and being nice. You can change someones life . It is not just a movie it is already happening in real life and even now the movement is still going on and it never stops . I think my act of kindness made a difference in someones life because you never know what is happening in their life right now and by giving them that card and goodie bag i could make them smile and forget about their problems for a little while. That is why Pay it forward is important.Lets all Pay It Forward lets make a difference in this this world. Always remember it always starts with you .
