    When I was at Albertsons, (a food store) I saw a bag of hot dog buns on the ground. I went away from my mom, and picked them up.

Pass It On®

I found my passion for softball last school year and joined the modified softball team at my school. I don't live in town, so my dad had to drive into town to pick me up almost every day. I started crunching numbers, with gas having been so expensive during softball season, and I just realized that my parents spent $197.76 just on gas for me to play softball for three months. Now, that is sacrifice.

Sacrifice is giving up something of value for something of higher value.
Bruce Willingham, Warner Robins, Ga

Check out September 11 10th year, pay it foward event. It's on Facebook and what you do is do a kind act to three people and ask those people to pass it along, or pay it foward. Love the commercial for this website. That's what brought me here!

Its beautifully said. If giving up a little can bring a smile on somebody's face, then we should think that our work is done.
Rina G., Secunderabad, India

People sacrifice their lives everyday for us. Why can't we do the little things to give back?
Madison C., Pennsylvania
