Marty Hayes uses her $1,000 to help Walltown Children's Theatre in Durham, North Carolina. The theater provides children opportunities to perform in drama and dance. Marty says she is excited about helping the theater because it teaches good values and self-confidence.
While Marty has the Pay It Forward Challenge money to donate, she decides to double it by adding $1,000 of her own money! She gives a total of $2,000 to help refinish the floors in the ballet rooms and the theater.
After completing her challenge, Marty says she wants to continue to give in her daily life. "This was a big gesture of kindness, but you could get that same feeling in small bits of kindness to strangers," she says. "I can't tell you how great it was for everybody to come up and give me a warm hug and really thank me and talk about how much impact this means for them."
