What is "Pay it Forward"?
On October 31st 2011, all of the grade 8's watched "Pay it Forward". Pay it Forward is the
kind of movie that speaks to people. This movie taught me that no matter how small or tall, how old or how young, you can still make a difference.
What was your Pay it Forward act of kindness?
Sarissa, Madeline, Shera, and I made treat bangs for the kids at the Ronald Mcdonald House for our act of kindness.
Why did you choose this activity?
We chose this activity because we want to make the kids to feel happy, special and appreciated that there are some people that cares about what there going through.
Who did you help?
We helped the children staying at the Ronald Mcdonald house.
What did you do?
We bought supplies at Dollorama. We spent $32.60 on the supplies we bought. We bought pencils, erasers, crowns for the girls, toy d
inosuars for the boys, lollipop, and stickers. After buying the things we needed we went to Shera's house to put our supplies in the bags. We had 31 bags. The next day we went to the Ronald Mcdonald house and gave the treat bags to Kerry, a very nice women who worked there.

Kerry told us that she was very happy to see us teens making a difference in the children's lives.
And she was happy we chose the Ronald Mcdonald house for our act of kindness.
Did you ask the person to "Pay it Forward"?
We didn't ask them to Pay it Forward. We got the opportunity to write on the guest book that they had. We wrote all our names, our school name and wrote "Pay it Forward" under it. We also wrote "Pay it Forward" in big letters on the pieces of paper that we tied onto the bag.
How did they react to your request?
We were not sure how they reacted.
Why is the idea of "Pay it Forward" important?
The idea of "Pay it Forward" is very important, because we should rather be giving than receiving.
Has your act of kindness made a difference?
We aren't really sure if our act of kindness made a difference to the children, because the kids were at the hospital when we went there. But we do hope that we did made a difference in their lives because we do care about children being sick and that we understand what there going through. We know it's tough for them to be going through a lot from a young age. We made a difference towards Kerry because she was touched of what we did. She told us that we are doing a very nice thing.
