Generosity is Contagious

Students Conduct Experiment with Giving What happens when you take 20 high school students and give them each $30 to perpetuate generosity? In November, Wow-Students conducted its first Pay-It-Forward initiative with 11th graders at Wood River High School. Each student was given $30 to use towards an act of kindness for someone other than themselves. Students were asked to document and reflect on their experiences. The results were an inspiring reminder of how good it feels to help others and how thoughtful teenagers are.
