Pay it forward is when you do a random act of kindness to anyone, without expecting any rewards. The people I help will or might continue to do it for other people. The people who are reminded about the generosity will continue and the cycle goes on and on.
My act of kindness is volunteering at Winnipeg Harvest and helping my friends clean my neighbor's yards. Three of them in total. I chose these activities because Harvest helped my family when we were short of food and I helped my friends because they needed me and I said yes. For Harvest, I helped people who are in need of food because if it weren't for the volunteers there would be no Winnipeg Harvest. For yard cleaning, we helped people by cleaning their yards because a clean front yard will be good for the neighborhood, prevents sewer problems, provides clear mind and save the environment. I did both of these activities on November 12, 2011.
My act of kindness went very well. I felt happy to help because I want to stop poverty in Manitoba. I think they were surprised of how many people there were to volunteer because there were a lot of us. It was really fun because I hanged out with Mary, Aicelle, and Abby during the tour. I did not ask Winnipeg Harvest to pay it forward because they are already giving food to people who are in need of it. For cleaning the yards of people, it was fun because I got to help my friends and I also got to help keep our community clean.
The idea of Pay It Forward is important because it's always a good thing to help people in need. eg.)A man from Winnipeg helped two motorist that needed a tire change. After helping, he left and a few minutes later he got a heart attack. Those two motorists who he helped saw him and performed CPR. He survived because of those two motorists.
My act of kindness did make a difference.
