Patrick's Pay It Forward.

Part 1:
A young boy named Trevor was doing a project that he wanted to do called Pay It Froward. His teacher really liked that idea. Paying It Forward was when you help three people. Then each of those people will help three more, then it will continue to grow so we can make everybody's life better. First he tries helping a homeless man, but that doesn't really work out, until the end. Then he tries helping his teacher, by taking him on a date with his mom. That doesn't really go well, until the end, again. The third person he tries to help was his friend. He was getting bullied by three people. Trevor tries to help his friend and he jumps onto one of the bullies. Sadly, he gets stabbed and then he passes away.

Part 2:
What was your Pay It Forward act of kindness?
My Pay It Forward act of kindness was helping the janitors of our school, Sargent Park.

Why did you choose this activity?
I chose this activity because I found out that some parts of the school are really messy, and the janitors have to clean the whole school every single day. So my group and I decided to help them out by making there job easier.

Who did you help?
We helped the janitors of Sargent Park.

What did you do?
We cleaned up Sargent Park School.

When did you do you act of kindness?
We did this after school on December 17, 2010

My friends and I decided that the janitors have a lot to clean, because Sargent Park is a really big school and there are only a few janitors. We swept the halls and classrooms. We cleaned all the bathrooms and we took out the garbage.

Part 3:
How did your act of kindness go?
I think that my act of kindness went very well because we cleaned a lot of the school.

What Happened?
The school got cleaned by us.

How did you feel?
I felt really good when I was helping out the janitors.

How did the person or people react?
He was very thankful that we helped him clean the school.

Did you ask the person or people to "Pay It Forward"?
Yes, I did tell him to pay it forward.

How did they react to your request?
He said that he will pay it forward, because its good to help other people, so we can help everyone.

Part 4:
Why is the idea of "Pay it Forward" important?
It is very important because if we pay it forward, we can help a lot of people.

Has your act of kindness made a difference?
I hope that it did.


  1. That was cool how you cleaned our school! Maybe next time expand on your paragraphs.

  2. Great post Patrick, I liked that you helped the janitor clean our school. I also liked your video and great act of kindness.

  3. That's a really nice and creative thing you did, Patrick. I really liked the video, but, as Duyen said, you could expand on your answers. They're a bit vague.

  4. Great job Patrick. No wonder I saw you after school at the janitor's office. Now our school is clean because of you guys.

  5. Great post, Patrick. What a great idea to help the janitors in school. Now there are less places for them to clean up. Again, great job.
