Hanin's Pay it Forward

Part 1

Pay it forward is an idea for doing an act of kindness and not expecting something back. The idea came from a movie called Pay it Forward. In the movie, a young boy named Trevor is given an assighnment to come up with an idea to change the world. That is how he comes up with idea of helping someone and not expecting anything back and telling that person to pay it forward to someone else.

Part 2

My act of kindness was donating some clothes to Value Village. I chose this activity because I had some old clothes lying around that I didn't need. So I figured I could donate them. So I deciced to help Value Village. I went and donated my old clothes to Value Village on Saturday December 18 2010.

Part 3

My act of kindness went great it was perfect. I gave the guy who works there the bag of clothes. I felt good about it. The guy smiled and took the bag. I did not tell the guy to Pay it Forward because he is just a guy who works there.

Part 4

Pay it Forward is an important idea because it reaches people to give and not expect something back. It also helps people and teaches people to be kind. Alot of problems could be solved with pay it forward. My act kindness was to help Value Village with Donations it could make difference to Value Village (wich I heard the money they make goes to the army, I don't know if thats true though). It could help Value Village by giving it more things to sell.


  1. That was a good thing that you donated clothes to Value Village because some of the proceeds in sales go to the Big Brother Big Sister Foundation.

  2. I am glad that you donated clothes that you didn't need to Value Village. I hope your simple act of kindness made someone happy.

  3. Great Pay It Forward Hanin, I'm sure someone that het's those clothes will appreciate it very much.

  4. Hanin, it was very nice of you to donate some clothes to Value Village. I'm sure those people would be very thankful. Great job.
