PAY IT FORWARD: (Marshall and Kristina Wiggins )

Updated: Thursday, April 24 2014, 06:17 PM CDT
It's time now to Pay it Forward, where we share stories that highlight the giving spirit of our gulf coast community.
This story begins with Channel Three's Lena Deflores a sign 500 dollars
And our partner Hill-Kelly Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep.

This is how it ends.
"Wow." "I love you." "I love you, too."
And this is how it starts.
"She had a sign that said what were the exact words?"

"Are you interested in 500 dollars by any chance?"
500 dollars. Three rules. One sign -- and, an explanation.
"What the heck is goin' on? Why is Channel Three News here?"

Why? ... to Pay it Forward.
Strangers, neighbors, friends.
Smiles, hugs and shock.
And it's still a surprise.

"We've been doing it for three years." "Really? I never head of it til today."
Lucky for Amanda Thompson, her friends Marshall and Kristina Wiggins drove by.

"But you're driving away."
And then drove by again.

"I'm gonna get out of the way here." "I'm gonna go park." And again.
"We drove around a couple times."

They told us about Amanda.
A married mother of two whose husband works in law enforcement.
She'd been laid off and unable to find a new job and care for her growing family.

So, we stopped by.
"With all the bad news in the world, this is the way to do it."
On behalf of Hill-Kelly Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram, I want to give you this money so you can pass it on to your friend."

"Because of everything going on with your mom passing away, not being able to find a job."

One hundred, two hundred, three hundred, four hundred, five hundred dollars."

"I love you" "Thanks a lot"
"If you can help somebody out. Help them."
"Pay it Forward."
Thank you to Hill-Kelly Dodge Chrysler Jeep for helping make Pay it Forward possible.
