Andren, Sam, and Allan's Pay it forward

Part 1- What is Pay it Forward?
To "Pay it Forward" you have to do a random act of kindness for three people and then tell them what pay it forward is so that they can do it too.

Part 2-What was your Pay it Forward act of kindness?
Me(Allan), Sam, and Andren all went out on some of the coldest days and shoveled peoples sidewalks for free!

Why did you choose this activity?
We chose this activity because it is has been cold and snowing a lot and people need their sidewalks shoveled but if it's really cold they wont want to do it.

Who did you help?
We helped two women and one family.

What did you do?
We shoveled their sidewalks and stairs for free and one of the ladies wanted us to do her back deck so we did that too.

When did you do your act of kindness?
We did it on Thursday and then again on Sunday of last week.

Part 3- How did your act of kindness go? 
Our act of kindness went really well.

How did you feel?
We felt really good after, we felt like we really made a difference in those peoples lives even if it was something small that we did, it's sometimes the gesture more than the deed.

How did the person or people react?
one of the ladies came out while we were shovelling and had a bag full of little candies and things. She said that because we didn't ask for any money she thought we deserved some things (We turned it down though and told her about pay it forward).

Did you ask the person or people to Pay it Forward?
Yes we did ask the two women to pay it forward but not the family.

How did they react to your request?
They reacted very shocked and they had to ask us a couple times if we were serious.

If you did not ask the person to "Pay it Forward" how come?
We didn't ask the family because they weren't home.

Part 4- Why is the idea of "Pay it Forward" important?
It is really important because we live in a really self centered sociaty and this makes people think about others and do good deeds for others.

Has you act of kindness made a difference?
Yes our act of kindness has made a difference for the people that we helped and the people that hopefully get helped by them.
