Sam Rodriguez Pays It Forward: 07/16/12


This week's Pay It Forward segment was a lot of fun. We set up along University Avenue north of the Loop near 66th Street. 

In a matter of seconds, Sam Rodriguez shows up.  Sam has seen Pay It Forward before and after a few seconds, he picks the mother of his best friend. Sam decided to help out Linda Gonzales.

Sam mentioned that Linda lives by herself and he picked her because he felt he wanted to help his best friend's mother who lives on a fixed income.

When we arrive, Linda is surprised. She didn't want to appear on camera and thought something bad had happened, but we reassured her that we were there for a GOOD reason. She opens the door and she is busy at work making homemade tortillas.  

After being embarrassed by the cameras, she opens up and accepts $300 from Sam.  After receiving the extra cash, she offers us homemade tortillas…which were terrific by the way!

Another happy ending to our Pay It Forward segment.   Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon! You could become our next playmaker!!
