John's Pay it Forward

Part 1
Pay it Forward is a movie about a boy named Trevor, an 11 year old boy who tries to change the world by a act of kindness after an assignment by his social studies teacher, Mr. Simonet. His plan is to do something nice for three people(Gerry, Mr. Simonet and Alex). The three people should Pay it Forward to another three people of their choice and so on. At the end Trevor died since that the "Pay it Forward" movement grew really big as thousands of people paid respect to Trevor who started this movement.

Part 2
My Pay it Forward act of kindness was carrying 3 boxes of canned goods of a  female stranger in Cumberland. I choose this activity cause it is easier than the other ideas that I think off. I did it last Sunday, December  19th around 10:00 am.

Part 3
It was fun and exciting cause its my first time helping a stranger in Canada. The reaction of the lady was shocking cause she was about to shout but I stopped her and I told her I told her that im paying it forward and please pass it on. And the lady just kept quite and gave her three boxes of canned goods to me to carry to her room.

Part 4
Paying it Forward is great it helps a person life to change and especially the world to make a difference in a small way. I hope this will continue until the next generation.

Sorry I forgot to take a picture of my "Pay it Forward" cause I forgot to bring my camera with me.


  1. Great job John, I'm sure that lady really appreciated your help. You should post the pictures or video that you took.

  2. Thats nice of you to give some goods to that lady. I'm sure she was surprised and grateful for your act of kindness. Thats nice that you helped her carry her things too, I hope she will pay it forward!

  3. It's okay that you forgot to take a photo. Maybe you can draw what you did on paper then post it.

  4. Great job John. I'm glad you helped a stranger even when she was about to shout at you. I'm sure she really appreciates it. Next time add a photo or a video so we can see your act of kindness.
