Pay It Forward started out near 66th and Flint Avenue this week. We set up with our Pay It Forward sign searching for this week's playmaker.
A Lubbock couple spotted our sign as they were heading home for lunch. Andrea and Jake Reddick stopped on a dime and pulled into the parking lot. The Reddicks watch KCBD and Pay It Forward and knew exactly what it was about.
Andrea and Jake decided to help out Brad and Mariah Evanson. Brad and Mariah are med students. They have one son and a little girl on the way.
The Reddicks explained that Brad and Mariah are active in church and are always willing to help others out. Andrea and Jake felt that they could really use the money with a little girl on the way.
We drove to Brad and Mariah's house. Mariah answered the door and was completely surprised. She had never seen Pay It Forward before. Andrea counted out $300 and Mariah was speechless.
She told the Reddicks thank you and let them know how sweet it was to help them out. Mariah told us that she plans to Pay It Forward too when she gets the chance.
Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon! You may become our next playmaker...
