What is Pay it Forward?
Pay It Forward is when you help someone, who needs help. It also means doing a good deed with no returns. When you Pay It Forward, you're making the world seem brighter. I love the feeling after helping someone. Their 'Thank you's' and their smiles. It makes you want to say, 'Hey, I just helped someone. And I feel GREEAT!'
Helping people, people helping others, makes everyone helping each other. Just like MJ said, 'Heal the Word, and make it a better place.' Do whats right, and help change the world.
What was your Pay It Forward act of kindness?
I chose to clean up the entire house before my mom came home. I also made Christmas cards, and handed them out to every house in my neighborhood.

I didn't want her to stay up really late cleaning it up. She works til 12am, and she usually sleeps at 3, so this is what I wanted to do.

I helped my mother.

First, I started in the living room. Cleaned up everything there, then I washed the dishes. Went upstairs and cleaned there, then cleaned my room. Then, I cleaned the basement. It took me a total of 3 hours. (:

Has your act of kindness made a difference?
My act of kindness made a difference because it changed how my mother looked at me. She always thought I was so lazy, and would never do dishes. etc For the Christmas Cards, it made a difference because I'm thanking my neighbors, and what they've done for us.
