LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

This week's Pay It Forward segment is a very special one.  We set up with our Pay It Forward sign seeking this week's playmaker.

In addition to our normal $300 to give, we had an anonymous donor donate $100 to the cause. 

This week's recipient received $400.

Christopher Garcia spotted our sign first.  He saw our sign and was excited about being a part of Pay It Forward this week.

Christopher decided to Pay It Forward to Amanda Flores.

Christopher told us, "She's a single mom.  Three kids.  She chews a lot more than she can handle."

Amanda was at work when we tried to locate her, but we made the journey to her workplace to make her day.

When she came out, Christopher caught Amanda by surprise.

He told her what was happening and she became very emotional. 

Amanda accepted the $400 tearfully.

She said, "Thank you."

Amanda added, "Wow. This is awesome. I really needed this this week. "

Amanda told us, "This is an answer to prayer. A huge answer to prayer."

Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon.  You may become our next playmaker.
