Romiel Almario's Pay It Forward

Part 1
Pay i forward is a move that somebody created. Pay it forward is doing something for somebody that is helpful and expect nothing in return. Then you could that for a couple of other people then you could ask them to do the same for somebody else. Then they could do the same. After you would have started a gigantic chain of people doing helpful or kind things for each other.

Part 2
My pay it forward act of kindness was that I raked up a couple of houses in my neighborhood. I chose this activity because when I was walking home one day I saw a bunch of my neighbor's lawn were covered in leaves. Then I was thinking "maybe they don't have the time to rake up the leaves." The people that I helped were people in my neighborhood whose leaves were not raked. I went up to there houses and asked them if I could rake up their lawn's for free, if they said yes then I would do the best I could. I did my act of kindness on Sunday, November 13, 2011.

Part 3
My act of kindness was great, although I was scared I gained more confidence along the way. I raked up their front yards big or small and their leaves by the street. I felt really good about making them happy and scared when they had a dog. My neighbors reacted with confusion because when I said for free but when I told them about pay it forward that confusion went away. When I finished each yard I asked them if they would pay it forward to somebody else and all of them said "of course" or even "why wouldn't I."

Part 4
I think pay it forward is important because if everybody helps each other the world would be in perfect balance. Which means everybody would be helping each other and would be kind to each other. That is why pay it forward is important.


  1. Romiel great job!!! You should have made a video of you raking all those leaves. Its really nice how you raked all those leave for free because people are usually in it for the money but any way great job! Your neighbour must have been really proud of you raking all those leaves!!!

  2. Good Job Romiel! cleaning all the leaves in your neighbor is going to clean the environment. All those people who live in the house don't need to clean all the leaves in their front yard. Keep up the good work.

  3. Good job Romiel! You should've recorded a video of you raking all the leaves in their yard. It's nice how you cleaned their yard for free so they don't have to it themselves. Goodjob!
