Our Pay It Forward segment this week starts out near the intersection of 50th Street and Avenue U. We set up with our Pay It Forward sign searching for this week's playmaker!
After a short wait, Susan Janssen shows up asking about our Pay It Forward sign. Susan has never seen Pay It Forward before, so we explained how it all works. We asked her if she had $300 to give, who would she pick? We told her that she has one hour to find this person and that it cannot be a family member.
Once Susan understood how it works, she chose Alicia Saucedo. Alicia is Susan's co-worker. Susan told us that Alicia could really use some help. She had just eaten lunch with her a few minutes before spotting our sign.
Susan told us that Alicia was a very nice person and had run into financial struggles. Susan thinks $300 will come in handy.
We travel a short distance to Alicia's house where we catch Alicia in her car about to run some errands. Susan counts out $300 and they exchange a hug. Alicia thanks Susan for helping her out.
Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon! You could become our next playmaker!
