Pay It Forward

Before winter vacation we had watched a movie called "Pay it forward", which is about a boy who had a social studies assignment to change the world by helping people then telling them just to pay it forward. Our assignment was to do an act of kindness. Here are the questions.
1) Who are you going to help?
2) What are you going to do?
3) Where are you going to do this?
4) When are you going to do this?

This winter the task I chose is to put up most of the decorations inside and even outside my house. On the day before Christmas Eve my dad and me had went to buy new Christmas light for the front yard and some Christmas tree decorations. When we got home the first thing i did was to check if all the lights worked and put them up. By the time i had finished i started Putin up the tree and putting on the decorations.
Here's a picture.

( picture is not uploading ) ill try to get it up tomorrow.

Then from there I told my dad to pay it forward and he helped my neighbour put up some of there lights and then after new years my dad told me half of my street got " payed forward " and it had started with just 1 person. When he told me i got very surprised and I felt good inside.

The Question we had to answer was can one person make a difference?
I think 1 person can make a difference from the experience i had this winter made me thing alot about this question so yes one person can make a difference.
Happy new years .

Good job Darren, but your missing your third paragraph and you have a few spelling mistakes. Although, I still liked how you explained your "pay it forward" experience. Great job Darren! (:
