Pay It Forward

Saturday, January 3, 2009
For this pay it forward project, there were lots of things I wanted to do, but I didn't get to do them. One of them were making brownies and giving them to the Children's Hospital. I was going to do that with a couple of friends but never got the chance to. So instead, my act of kindness was to shovel my front yard. I did this because I wanted to do something for my family so they wouldn't have to do it. I also gave out thank you cards and happy holiday cards. I did this because I wanted to thank the people that have helped me throughout the year and maybe even longer than that. I gave some of the cards when there was a get together. I had eighteen cards but all of them were not given all on the same day. Each card had the word 'thank you' in big words on the side and in each card, I listed all the things that I wanted to thank them about.

Well, I never got any pictures of myself shoveling because there was no one there to take a picture of me, so to show that I did do my project, I took a picture of the snow before I shoveled it and took a picture when i was done shoveling.

These are some of the cards and what they look like .

When I was writing the cards I was really looking forward in giving them. When I shoveled and gave out the cards, I felt so happy because I did a good thing. It just made me feel like a good person and I was proud of myself for being responsible of making someone smile. Also, I have realized that I should be really thankful because there are alot of things people do for me that I do not realize and it got me a chance to thank them. Just like when I gave out the cards to people the look on their faces made me smile. They were surprised because they never expected it. In every card that I made, I wrote "Pay it Forward" and wrote a little about what Pay it Forward was. I hope that the people will do the same as I did and do something nice for someone else.

I think that ONE person could always make a difference because there are lots of people in this world, but all you need is to help one person and if you helped that one person they would pass that on and help other people. Its just like saving a life, would it make a difference to save one person's life? Of course it would. If you helped more than one person that would even be better. The more we help out each other the more smiles and happiness you see. One person means a whole lot, so if you helped one person it would make a big difference because theres always room for more happy faces in this world. ONE PERSON MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN LIFE!
