    would love to win this!

  2. I offered to carry a baby for my best friend who cannot have children.

  3. Lucy De Guzman says:

    Didn’t understand the whole “pay it forward,” deal until I actually saw the movie last year. =P Decided to test the theory (consciously) a few days after seeing the movie and went through my local starbucks drive-through. Gave the cashier a $10 (all I had extra at the time) and told him to use it for the next person. Around the same time the following week, I went to get my usual triple shot and was greeted by the same person who had helped me the week before. He was so eager to tell me that my “paying it forward” concept was cycled through three other guests soon after myself. We’ve always been charitable to others and hearing about this cycle (that actually happened) makes me smile each time I think about it. So, pay it forward y’all! =D

  4. dug plants up for someone who couldn’t do it for themselves, but was worried about them.

  10. valerie zavala says:

    I am a nurse who takes care of many patients daily. Almost everyday I get closer and closer to family members and day by day it’s like we become friends who’ve known each other for years. Well, one of my patients wife is elder. She visits her husband everyday and literally won’t miss a day without seeing him. She rides the city bus to get across town before 9am. I have no idea how she does it everyday but she’s there. It’s funny because this happened yesterday and I’m now writing about it. But anyways, as i walked in the room to say bye to my patient yesterday, the wife had a long sad face. She didn’t have a ride back home because she had forgotten her bus money on the table. I told her,” you know what, my shift ends in less than 10 minutes, let me give you a ride,” she looked at me with watery eyes and said,” really?” I told her really and you know what i’ll give you a ride back to the hospital so you won’t have to waste any money. She said thank you so many times, gave me hugs and kisses. I hadn’t done this because i felt bad, i did this because she manages to get up everyday to ride the bus across town just to be with her husband. That my friends is love. She handed me a banana as a thank you lol and told me God returns favors to those who do things for others. Little did she know that moment before she handed me the banana and way before I had seen it I was craving it haha. It’s funny how things work. I even offered my money to her for today’s ride to the hospital. She kindly refused, but I was glad that I had asked and offered anyways. I did all that just because….and I felt good about it too.

  62. Annette Palmer says:

    Paying It Forward doesn’t feel like its paying it forward because I love helping others. I am a 20 year 4-H advisor and I pay for my 4-H kids passes and projects if their family cannot afford it. I have always asked them to do something for their community or someone needing help like taking out trash, raking leaves, etc. As a family, we pick someone who is having a hard time and surprise them with gifts for Christmas or a birthday, recently a friend who needed gas to get back and forth to a doctor 2 hours away so I got our local Lions to give him $100 gas card. He has worked hard all his life and now has MS and just really suffering financially, spiritually and in every way you can imagine. His Pay It Forward is praying for others in need, because physically he can’t do anything. If everyone was nice to others on a grander scale this would be a better world indeed.

  63. Marshawn Stevens says:

    Thanks Cori!

  67. bought formula for a homeless woman and her newborn while she waited for her aid to kick in

  68. I’ve started stocking up on Christmas decorations for my sister who had a housefire in January. I know the loss of handmade ones from my late grandma are one of the things she mourns the loss of the most.

    • I am so sorry about your sister’s house and your grandmother’s decorations. That’s so sweet of you to be thinking ahead and getting her new decorations to make her home pretty this year.

  69. I call and check on my 84 year old grandma every day, just beause she’s alone and I might be the only call she gets all day. 🙂
