Nikka's Pay It Forward Post

Part 1

"Pay It Forward" is a movie about a boy name Trevor. He attempt to change the world given a Social Studies project by his new Social Studies teacher. Paying it forward means that you help 3 other people out , instead of giving back you " Pay It Forward" to 3 other people. Then you continue and continue and the chain will get bigger and bigger !

Part 2

What was your Pay It Forward act of kindness?
My act of kindness was that me and my group ( Norien, Nicole, Beverly ) went to Children Hospital and gave the children's there some treat's and toy's. We were suppose to volunteer to play with children but you had to be at lease 14 years of age and give some medical records be we had to volunteer.

Why did you choose this activity?
Why we chose this act of kindness is that it's really sad seeing a children that young going though so much medical already. And knowing that one simple thing like a treat bag can make then happy. And think about if that was you wouldn't you be happy knowing that people out there are praying and caring about your situation !

Who did you help?
We helped kids from Children's Hospital Foundation.

What did you do?
We gave them treat bags with toys and cookies inside.

When did you do you act of kindness?
We did our act of kindness on November 10 , 11 and 14. On 10 and 11 we organize our stuff that we bought and called. Then on the 14 we went to Children's Hospital Foundation during lunch !

Part 3

How did your act of kindness go?
I felt really great, knowing that we helped children and we also made a difference to them ! And buying stuffed animal's and knowing that the money will be in good use, like giving them to children that need's them.

What Happened?
We went to Children's Hospital at lunch on November 14. And gave the works the goodies we made to give to the children. Then Tania a working from Children's Foundation Hospital came and gave us a certificate that we didn't expected ! We took a couple of picture's with them. After we waited for Norien's dad to pick us up , we saw a gift shop and decided to look around. Then we found out that the money will be given to the Children's Hospital Foundation, so we decided to buy one stuffed animal !

How did you feel?
I felt really good and happy ! Knowing that we made a BIG differences by giving some simple treats will make then happy !

How did the person or people react?
We didn't see the reaction of the children but inside I can feel how they are happy ! But the reaction of the workers from Children Hospital Foundation were really surprise to see how many grade 8 student's from Sargent came by to make a differences to their kids.

Did you ask the person or people to "Pay It Forward"?
We wrote on notes to "Pay It Forward" and we showed them the paper to what "Pay It Forward" really meant.

How did they react to your request?
They reacted surprise and happy. Them knowing at our age we are already making a differences to the world.

Part 4

Why is the idea of "Pay it Forward" important?
"Pay It Forward" is important because you can continue the chain and make the chain even bigger by, "Paying It Forward" to three other people. So it would continue to make a

Has your act of kindness made a difference?
Yes, I made a difference because knowing that children are now happy from one simple thing that we did !

Here is also a link to Children Hospital Foundation. Them thanking Sargent Park School.

And I got a message from one of the works for Children Hospital Foundation saying...
" I wanted to thank you again for making the treat bags for the kids in the hospital, they were so thoughtful! We brought your groups gifts to the Respirology department, where kids who have breathing disorders go for treatment and tests. You made a lot of kids very happy. "

Good Job grade 8 team ! (:
