Edgarton Student Organizes Pay It Forward Project

VINELAND —“You are my heart” were the words that Joel and Lindzi Bermudez said to one another constantly. Losing a beloved father is hard enough on anyone. It is especially hard when the loss is suffered by an 8- year-old girl.

William “Joel” Bermudez, an Air Force veteran from Vineland, died tragically in November from injuries sustained in a car accident leaving his daughter Lindzi without a father. The sudden loss has left a huge void in her life.

Enter Joel and Lindzi’s friend Nickolas Casalinuovo, a 14-year-old eighth-grade student at Edgarton Christian Academy in Newfield and his “Pay It Forward Project.” The Pay It Forward Project is an eighth-grade requirement that started with the hopes of Edgarton students realizing that even a 14-year-old could make a positive difference in someone's life.

In a Pay It Forward Project, Edgarton’s principal, Dr. Mary Alimenti, presents each of the students with an envelope and encouraging words to "Pay It Forward" at a prayer service for their entire student body. Each envelope contains $40 and starts them on a journey that will change their lives. Students are challenged to think of ways to increase the money given through various fundraising activities, events or by donating their time to a cause.

Casalinuovo dedicated his project to raise money for a trust fund for Lindzi that would help her with her future educational and financial needs. Casalinuovo filmed three student plays at his school and made DVDs of them to sell to the students and parents for $5 each. He then hosted a video gaming night for fellow students with a $5 admission fee, all which would benefit his Pay It Forward Project.

“Through this journey of ‘The Pay It Forward Project,’ we encourage our students to open their eyes to the world around them and to be able to recognize the needs of others in our community,” said Melissa Knapp, Edgarton’s administrative assistant. “Working through the process, the student uses their organizational and communication skills—just to name a few. I try to encourage them to find something they are passionate about.”

Through his dedication to the project and to his friend Lindzi, Casalinuovo was able to raise $500 and was honored to present a check to her at a special ceremony held recently at Edgarton.

“This project has made a substantial impact on my life. Paying it forward gave me a great feeling inside,” Casalinuovo said. “Personally, it made me happy and gave me the eagerness to do more to help someone in need. The project also emits goodness to people that observe it. As once stated by Sir Isaac Newton, ‘For every action, there is an equal and opposition reaction.’ This and the well-known cliché ‘What goes around, comes around’ express the truth in what happens when one gives time and effort to a good cause.”

Donations are still being accepted to help support Lindzi’s future education fund. They can be made online at www.giveforward.com/ fundraiser/y5zb or checks can be mailed to Lindzi Bermudez Trust Fund, 629 E. Wood St., Suite 100, Vineland, NJ 08360
