Kate's Pay it Forward

Part 1

Pay it forward means doing good things to other people and making a difference for their life.

Part 2

My Pay It Forward is an act of kindness to help Charry’s auntie's friend who's disabled. we did this with my partner Charry Mangaya. We decided what are we going to do. We chose this activity because we like to help (old) people with disabilities. We helped Precilla Malla, we call her tita (auntie) Malla, she's 59 years old, and she’s disabled with psoriasis arthritis and diabetes since 2003. We asked her what we can do for her. We did this act of kindness last November 13, 2011 at 11:30 A.M to 3:30 P.M.

Part 3

Our act of kindness went well. First Charry introduced me 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 and we said “yes we can". We noticed that her bedroom is crowded with her things and a little bit messy; I told her that we can do some "interior designing to her bed room ". We moved some stuff, while we're cleaning up; we were talking and sharing stories like her experience when she's young. We're done at that time. We asked 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 it’s okay because we did this for free and she doesn't have to pay us .She's so thankful to us . She wants us to visit and to come back if we have a free time. Charry and I had so much fun . were so happy because we make her so happy and Charry and I helped each other to take pictures and videos and to help Tita Malla.

Part 4

Pay it forward is important because you share good things to others with the intension to make a difference not only to their life’s but to yourself as well .

Here's the link for our Pay It Forward Video.



  1. Good job Kate! I like the video you made with Charry. I thought it was very nice to help your auntie's friend clean her house! Good job!

  2. its was really nice Kate and Charry. very helpful and i could see that she was very happy about what you did. One suggestion though, when you record something on tape make sure that your holding the camera straight and firm cause the viewers will have a hard time understanding if the images and all are blurry... but it was great, i really think you made her happy and relieved which is what matters the most. ^_^
    good Job!

  3. It was really nice of you to help Charry's aunties friend, especially since she's disabled. With that I'm sure it made her aunties friend very happy.
