Pay It Forward
Usually dispatched within 24 hours
School teacher Eugene Simonet (Kevin Spacey) sets his class an assignment: they must each think up a way to make the world a better place. This prompts eleven-year-old Trevor McKinney (Haley Joel Osment) to develop the idea that instead of paying back good deeds, one should instead pay them forward. Putting his idea into practice, Trevor performs an act of kindness for three different people, requiring each of those three to perform three further kindnesses themselves. In doing so he starts a chain reaction which does indeed make the world a better place.

He comes up with an idea whereby instead of paying back good deeds, they are pay forward, by helping other people. The Pay It Forward system has massive repercussions transforming the lives of amongst others, his alcoholic mother, struggling to support and raise her son, and his teacher, as they are forced to deal with their painful pasts. The result is both devastating and heart warming.
