Leea's Pay It Forwards

The Pay It Forward movie was about Trevor, an 11 year old boy who tries to make a change for the world. His Social Studies teacher Mr. Simonet had given the class an assignment. Trevor's plan was to do something nice for three people. Instead of Trevor paying it back, the three people have to "pay it forward" to three other people. The movie shows a huge difference on people who receive the favor and also to those who had paying it forward. At the end of the movie, the "Pay It Forward" group had grew big as many more people paid their respect to Trevor who had died from a fight.

My Pay It Forward act of kindness was to shoveling my grandpa's front yard. I had chose this act of kindness because I thought it would be nice to shovel his. So I had help my grandpa and grandma. So I decided to shovel the snow they usualy walk. I had did my act of kindness in the afternoon of December 21 2010.

My act of kindness went just how i planned in the begin. I shoveled the snowout of the path way.The snow was very heavy but the shovel wasn't that heavy, it didn't talk that much effort. I felt warm in the inside after my grandpa smile and gave me a hug. My grandpa and grandma was really thankful of what I had done for them. I had ask my grandpa and grandma to pay it forward and they said "yes" they will do something good for someone.

The idea "Pay It Forward" is important because I think if people will do and act of kindness and it pay it forward, many lives will be different. Some people do good things because they want to recieve something in return. I feel my act of kindness made a difference.



  1. Great Job Leea, I'm sure your grandparents were really thankful for what you did. Shoveling snow is hard especially when it's cold and you have to shovel piles of snow.

  2. Great job Lea. I'm sure your grandpa and grandma really appreciates your act of kindness. They are lucky to have a grandchild like you.

  3. You're lucky to have grandparents to shovel snow for. I hope that you're grandparents will do the same.
