Pay It Forward started out along 34th Street near the intersection of Chicago Avenue. We set up with our Pay It Forward sign seeking this week's playmaker.
After a minute or two, Jason Edwards pulled into the parking lot after spotting our sign. Jason and his passenger Julia Davis had seen Pay It Forward before and they knew who they wanted to help out.
Jason and Julia decided to help out Cynthia Howles. Jason and Julia attend church with Cynthia.
Jason explained, "She's a good mom. She's a good grandmother and she is a really good nurse. She just lost her job and she really needs the help right now."
We drove to Cynthia's house. Once we arrived, Jason counted out $300 to Cynthia. Cynthia was definitely surprised.
"I'm overwhelmed. Thank you." Cynthia said. She added, "I'm very fortunate and very blessed."
Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon. You may become our next playmaker.

If you had $300 to give away, who would you help?
