Pay it Forward 2012

Welcome to your first 2 Minutes to make a Difference  and We Day Assignment.  This will start you on your journey to make a 2 minute movie by the end of March.  Here is your assignment.

THIS POST AND ASSIGNMENT NEED TO BE COMPLETED BY December 3rd  9:00 AM.

Excerpt from the movie:
"You see, I do something real good for three people. And then when they ask how
they can pay it back, I say they have to Pay It Forward...to three more people. Each. So, nine people get helped. Then those people have to do twenty-seven." He turned on the calculator, punched in a few numbers. "Then it sort of spreads out, see, to eighty-one, then two hundred forty-three, then seven hundred twenty-nine, then two thousand, one hundred eighty-seven. See how big it gets?"

Some possible ideas include:
·        Volunteer at a soup kitchen, hospital, care home
·        Clean up your community/school yard/park
·        Donate Food/Clothing/Toys/Books/Christmas gifts
·        Collect new and used toys and donate them to a hospital
·        Help deliver Christmas hampers
·        Make and deliver treat bags for children in hospitals (include pens, notepads, stickers, puzzles, candy, etc)
·        Send care packages for soldiers / write letters to soldiers
·        Become a pen pal with a senior citizen
·        Volunteer to baby-sit for free
·        Write ‘Thank you’ notes to people who have helped you
·        Leave cards or notes in mailboxes, on windshields, or hanging from doorknobs
·        AND LOTS, LOTS MORE!!

These are just possibilities. Students are asked to be creative and try to make a difference in someone’s life.
