Mario Ortiz Pays It Forward: 01/27

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - This week's Pay It Forward segment started out in North Lubbock. We set up with our Pay It Forward sign seeking this week's playmaker.

Mario Ortiz was the first person to spot our Pay It Forward sign.

We asked him if he had $300 to give, who would he want to help out?

Mario chose Lindsey Perez as this week's recipient of Pay It Forward.

Mario told us that Lindsey was working very hard to take care of several children of her own.

He really felt like she deserved to be blessed with $300.

We made the journey to West Texas Pediatrics where Lindsey works with children.

We completely surprised Lindsey in the hallway.

She was very grateful and happy to receive the money.

She told us it would come in handy for her children and some of the needs they have in their life right now.

Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon.

You may become our next playmaker.
