For my act of kindness, i donated my old clothes to The Salvation Army Thrift Store. I chose this activity because I had a lot of clothes laying around, so i might as well donate them to people who needs them. I helped the people who needs stuff to wear.I donated my old clothes to The Salvation Army. I did my act of kindess today.
My act of kindness went well. On Saturday December 20, 2010 my dad and I went to that Salvation Army Thrift Store and explained what we were going to do. The person told us to drop the clothes in the gray bin.I felt happy because I know that I'm helping people I didn't say pay it forward to the person because she was busy, I think that they would've appreciated me donating old clothes.
Pay it forward is important because you're helping people, and trying to make the world a nicer place. I think my act of kindness will make a difference in peoples lives.
