What was your pay it forward act of kindness?
My pay it forward act of kindness was donating a box filled with food to Winnipeg harvest and i donated another box with clothing in it to a drop off .
Why did you choose this activity?
I chose this activity because I realized that i had a lot of small clothing that I didn't use anymore and that there was extra food that we didn't want so instead of throwing them out I decided that i should give it to others that needed it more than me.
Who did you help?
I helped Winnipeg harvest by giving them clothing and food to give to homeless people.
What did you do?
What I did was I looked through my closet to see if I had clothes that i didn't use anymore and i asked my mother if my siblings had unused clothing and then I put them inside a box, next i looked around our kitchen and i asked if we had food we didn't need then i put those in a box. I donated the clothing box to a drop off and i donated the food to Winnipeg harvest.

I donated the boxes on separate days, i donated the clothing on December 30 2013 and i donated the food on January 4 2014.
