The Pay It Forward Challenge
Once Cindy lets her friends and co-workers in on her plan, things start to come together. Everyone chips in for decorations, party favors and food to throw a luncheon for the expectant moms and the rest of the shelter's residents. Cindy then heads to Babies "R" Us for a $1,000 shopping spree, picking up plenty of baby essentials from car seats to strollers to cribs.
Cindy says it means a lot to help women from the Sojourner Truth House. "Being in a domestic violence situation is very stressful, and then to be pregnant also really makes it tough," she says. "So it's really neat to be able to do something for these women and take some of the pressure off of, ‘What am I going to do when I have these babies?'"
