Pay It Forward 2011-2012
What is pay it forward?
Pay it forward is when you do and act of kindness for someone you do or don't know without expecting anything back. the main point of this is to make a difference no matter how big or small.
After you do the act of kindness you ask the person to pay it forward for another person and it just keeps going till it spreads out with many people paying it forward.
My pay it forward act of kindness is to bake cookies for all the teachers in our school and tell them why we appreciate them. I chose to do this activity because teachers have hard days at school and I thought if we made them cookies and thank you cards it would lighten up their day a little bit and make them happy. We helped all the teachers in our school including the principal and vice-principals and the people in the office. We went to Kassey's house to make the cupcakes . We delivered the cupcakes on Monday to all the teachers and the EAs.
The teachers were really happy to get the cupcakes and cards. We went at lunch to deliver the things to the teachers in the school. I felt absolutely stunned by how much this affected the day of the teachers we gave things to. I felt really happy to be making a difference in our teachers day. The teachers we happy to receive the cupcakes. We never asked the teachers to pay it forward because we had to rush to deliver the cupcakes so the other people in my group could go to choral fest.
The idea of pay it forward is important because it shows other people capable of doing things for others for nothing in return. My act of kindness made a difference in the teachers day because it made a smile on their faces. It made the teachers happy and it brightened up their day a little bit.
Here is a slideshow that shows what we did for pay it forward.
