Pay it forward is doing good things to other people and making a difference for them.
My Pay It Forward act of kindness was to help my auntie's friend who's disabled.I did this with my partner Kate Velasco, I decided what are we going to do. I chose this activity because I like to help (old) people with disabilities. We helped Precilla Malla, we call her tita (auntie) Malla, she's 59 years old, shes disabled with psoriasis arthritis and diabetes since 2003. We asked her what can we do for her. We did this act of kindness last November 13, 2011 at 11:30 A.M to 3:30 P.M.
Our act of kindness went well . First I introduced Kate to her , we asked her "what can we do for her?".
We saw her kitchen, there's a lots of dirty dishes . So , we washed it , we cooked rice for her, we swept the floor, we cleaned her table. We saw her bedroom and she asked us is it okay to help her fold some of her clothes "yes we can". I noticed that her bedroom is crowded with her things and a little bit messy, I told her that we can do some "interior designing here". We moved some stuff, while we're cleaning up, we were talking,sharing stories like her experience when she's young. We're done at that time. We asked a permission, if we can take a video and a photo to her. She approved. She was so happy when she saw her bedroom was all cleaned up.She told us that she's going to pay but we told her that its okay because we did this for free and she doesn't have to.She's thankful to us . She want us to visit and to come back if we have a free time. Kate and I had so much fun.I'm so happy because we make her (Tita Malla) so happy and Kate and I helped each other to take pictures and videos and to help Tita Malla.
Pay it forward is important because you share good things to others.
