Sarah's Pay it Forward

Part 1
Pay it forward is you do a random act of kindness to 3 people, and you don't expect anything in return. Then those 3 people will do it for 9 people, then those nine people will do it for 27 people, and it keeps on going, and you don't need
to be a superhero to pay it forward. All you need is the opportunity to pay it forward.

Part 2

What was your Pay It Forward act of kindness?
My Pay It Forward act of kindness was to have a bake sale, and raise some money, so we can donate it to Children's Wish Foundation. I accomplished this with my partner Angela Aviso.

Why did you choose this activity?
We choose this activity because we wanted to make a difference in child's life by making their one wish come true.

Who did you help?
The money is going to help one of the following:
  • 16 year old Sara who has heart disease and is hoping to visit the set of he TV show Big Bang Theory.
  • 5 year old Kaden who is awaiting a kidney transplant and wants to meet Spiderman at Disney World
  • 11 year old Conor who has a serious bone disorder and is excited to stay at give kids the world in Flordia
What did you do?
What we did was we baked, and sold cookies to people at Sargent Park School. We raised $145.00. Then we went to Children's Wish Foundation and donated the money. The money is going to make someone's wish will become a reality.

When did you do you act of kindness?
Our act of kindness started when we called The Children's Wish Foundation. We told them that we were going to do a fundraiser for their foundation. Next we baked our cookies, and sold them (Nov 7-9). In the end we counted the money, and we donated the money to Children's Wish Foundation. And ow the money is going to grant either Sara's, Kaden's, or Connor's wish.

This is a video of Angela, and I paying it forward.

Part 3

How did your act of kindness go?
Our act of kindness went very well! Since we made a child who was suffering from a very critical disease wish come true

What Happened?
What happened was when Angela and I donated the money The fundraising coordinator, Lisa was surprised of how much money we have raised from a bake sale.

How did you feel?
It made me feel happy and proud, because I know that we've made a difference in someone's life, because our money will grant their wish.

How did the person or people react?
The fundraising coordinator, was surprised of how much money we have raise, but we didn't see Sara, Kaden, or Conor's reaction, but ill hope they'll be happy.

Did you ask the person or people to "Pay It Forward"? and How did they react to your request?
We asked Lisa to Pay It Forward, and Lisa's response was was that she would be glad to join the movement of pay it forward.

Part 4

Why is the idea of "Pay it Forward" important?
The idea of pay it forward is important because it's getting individuals like ourselves to care not just about ourself, but about others in need

Has your act of kindness made a difference?
I think that our act of kindness has made a difference in Sara, Kaden or Conor's life because they were going through a hard time, because of their serious medical condition, but we helped contribute towards making one of their wishes come true.


  1. Good job Sarah! I like that you put a lot of effort in your pay it forward project. I like that you gave the names of the people you help. I really like that your explanation of your project was very detailed. I love your video and it made me laugh. I suggest you make the important words stand out by making it bold or different colour. Overall good job!

  2. Great Job, Sarah! I liked how you added in the questions but remember to add on some boldness, use italics or change the colors to make things stand out more and to organize your post. Also, I think your hands slipped off the keyboard on some parts, try looking back and edit some parts, there wasn't a lot, no worries ^^, I just tend to be very detailed. Could you give me some details of how the fundraising coordinator reacted (facial expressions, comments etc)? I liked how your video was very detailed on how you started and how it took place, one picture at a time. Overall, the cookies were delicious! Good Job on your Pay it Forward post!
