A decade back, there is the movie - Pay It Forward. I watched it, and got impressed with the concept of... paying a good deed you received, forward.

What this means - if we receive a good deed, instead of paying the person back, we do another good deed to someone else, and in hope that he/ she will pay it forward too. The deed can be big, or small.. and to people we know like families of friends, or even strangers.

When I watched this movie, I was mesmerised by this concept. It's really powerful.. and at the back of my mind, I knew that one day, I'd like to work on this..

So when we had to do Task 3 for our Semi Finalists (in Project O&O) came about - I thought of using this same concept... creating a wave of inspiring acts, touching & empowering lives. Brought this up to my partners, and they agreed!

The name of the task was created by Leo... and he came up with YEAH, which also stands for Youth Empowering Another Human.

Niway, the task has started and so far, the finalists have been twittering their good deeds daily with the hashtag #YEAH & #PONO .

Whether or not this creates a bigger movement is yet to be seen. But even if it doesn't, I'm happy with what it will do this 2 weeks for the people around the contestants, and also inspire others on their twitter!

*I've also joined in this task, and tweets about my #YEAH acts daily! And u could join us too! :)
