Why is the idea of "Pay It Forward" important?
I think that the idea of "Pay it Forward" is important because doing something positive for a stranger could really impact that person or to maybe motivate that person to do something kind to another stranger. Doesn't matter what height you are, what age you are, etc. anyone can do this. Doing this can spread alot of positivity and good vibes from one person to another person.
Has your act of kindness made a difference?
My act of kindness hasn't really made a difference. Hopefully it will motivate some people to go out and do this type of positive thing. Something so small like a smile from a stranger can make anyone's day.
