Jae Anne's Pay It Forward

Part 1

PAY IT FORWARD is a movie that shows how an eleven year old boy, Trevor, show an act of kindness to three other people that don't expect anything in return. In the movie, Trevor and his classmates in Social Studies have given an assignment on "Think of an idea to change our world - and put it into action." Trevor helped 3 people: (1) Jerry, a homeless man, (2) Mr. Simonet, his teacher that gave the assignment and (3) Adam, his friend that was bullied. When he tried to help his friend, he was stabbed and die. Many people came to their house to show how they feel for Trevor and they put flowers on their yard.

Part 2

My Pay It Forward act of kindness was babysitting my 1 year and 10 mos. old cousin. I chose this activity because I liked to help my auntie for having time for herself after work by babysitting my cousin. I looked after my cousin on in their house for 2 hours last Saturday, December 18 2010. I had a great  for looking after him because I learned a lesson on doing this.

                                         This is when he wants to slide.

Part 3

It went really well when I babysit my cousin. I fed him, and I played with him. He is really cute and he was behave when i was feeding him rice. He learned some new letters and he can say "mommy" and "daddy" clearly now. I felt something when I was doing it but I can't explain what I felt. Before my time was over, he was so sleepy so I carry him to their room and wait until he really was slept. My cousin seems to be happy for babysitting him for two hours. And before went home, I told my auntie to pay it forward to other people to help them on any way she wants. My auntie really appreciate what I did so she told me that She will pay it forward to other people.

Part 4

The idea of "Pay It Forward" is important because anyone in the world can make a  difference to someone's lives.  We can change the the world by being kind to someone else and to pass it forward. And I think  my act of kindness to my auntie for babysitting my cousin has made a difference because my cousin can call her now to mommy instead of calling her "ta" because he heard us calling my auntie "tita". (ta is tita, in english - auntie)

I don't have a picture with me because he really wants to play more... I'm sorry.
