What Is Pay It Forward?
FAQ's about it  (WDAF FOX 4 News)
FOX 4 is Working for You with an uplifting series of stories. It's called "Pay It Forward," and we're giving you the chance to help change someone's life.

Each week, FOX 4's Kathy Quinn shows us what happens when someone you don't expect steps up at just the right time to make someone else's life a little easier.

Now, we need your help. Maybe it's someone you know, or it could be a stranger.

Here's how it works:

One time each week, FOX 4's Kathy Quinn will venture out in Kansas City to surprise a viewer with $300. That viewer will have just 60 minutes to give the money away to someone who needs a boost in life. But, you can't give it to a family member. And, our cameras must be able to come along.

You'll be amazed at the way you'll feel when you help us "Pay It Forward." And, we all get to share in the excitement as FOX 4 shows you these moving stories. So, pay it forward and email us below to tell us who you think deserves the money. Then wait to see who FOX 4 surprises first!
