Glenesse's Pay it Forward

Part 1:

Pay it forward is a project that is an act of kindness and you don't expect anything back. You do something nice for 3 people and each of them do something nice for 3 people and it just keeps going on. The movie "Pay it Forward" is about a boy named Trevor who had a school assignment, assigned by Mr.Simonet on making a difference in someone's life by helping them. He first helped a homeless man by taking him in to his home but it didn't work out till' the end when he asks a girl to have coffee with him. Then he helps Mr.Simonet by planning a date with his mom but it didn't work out till' the end. After, helped his friend when he was getting bullied by bullies, but he got stabbed and died. In the end many people came to his house and put candles and flowers in his front yard.

My pay it forward act of kindness was giving holiday cards to random people's car and mailboxes.

Who did you help?
I gave the card "in secret" to some people's mailboxes in my streets and people's windshields from my church.

I put Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year on the cards and said to pay it forward.
