Brian Shell Pays It Forward: 06/04

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Every once in a while, our Pay It Forward sign attracts the attention of someone who has never seen Pay It Forward before.  Brian Shell simply stopped by because he was curious about our sign.

Our segment starts out in Northwest Lubbock near 4th and Frankford.  Three cars approach us at almost the exact same time.  Brian Shell was the first to arrive.  Brian has never seen Pay It Forward before.  We explain the rules that it can't be a family member and that you only have one hour to locate the recipient and "Pay It Forward"

Brian has a co-worker in mind.  He picks Mara Hinojosa who works with him at La Paloma in Lubbock.  When we arrive, Mara is on her lunch break.  We decided to wait in the parking lot for a bit.  After 20 minutes or so, Mara returns to work.  After she has settled into work at her front desk, Brian walks in and surprises Mara with $300.  Mara was in tears and gives Brian a hug. Mara explained that it came at just the right time and that the entire experience strengthened her faith.

Be looking for our "Pay it Forward" sign soon.  You may become our next playmaker who helps someone out in their time of need.
