“Helping one person might not change the whole world, but it could change the world for one person”
Have you ever seen the movie called pay it forward? if no do not worry I will tell you everything but keep in mind that this article follows the rule of the movie and once you will read it you must do something meaningful that will change the lives of 3 people too. Sounds confusing and impossible right? 3 people, changing their lives when mostly we can not even change ours but you know what on 14th of February 2021 I understood that everything is possible and pay it forward actually works.
So what is this pay it forward and how is it connected to the 14th of February? Pay it Forward has 3 rule. First, What you will do has to be something that really helps people. Second, it should be something that they can not do by themselves and third, you do it for them and they should do it for 3 other people. I know how you already feel excited, want to change and help the whole world, making the list of people who you want to help, but do we actually do it? I remember myself after seeing the movie how enthusiastic I was but did I really make the list come true? no of course. Why? because it is easier to say I can not do it rather than to take an action. Raising money? I can not do it I don’t have enough salary and I don’t know enough people. Preparing food for others? I don’t have enough time and the list is never-ending.
If you have read my previous blogs you will know that currently I am volunteering at cultural house GOK in Wola and since the day I started working here I was told that a little boy called Filip needed help to live. The little one just several months years old who has not yet seen the beautiful colors of the world. As the preparation process was going on I was more and more amazed by the amount of love Polish people were expressing. Every day they were bringing food, cakes, handicrafts, hearts and souls and were doing everything for the little one. On the 14th of February, I understood that everything is possible and if you really desire something the whole world will help you to fulfill it. Days like this remind me the true reason for living. After 10 months when I will look back I will be proud that I was one of those people who made the change (a small one as fighting for Filipka’s life is not over) come true.
So dear Filipka get well soon as pay it forward challenge is on and the world is waiting for you!
