Pay It Forward Stories
To help Kaly on the road to her new life, Mary decides to take her on a $300 shopping spree for new clothes! While shopping, Kaly decides to continue the chain of kindness by using part of her money to buy pajamas for a girl she knows who has to sleep in her clothes.
The rest of Mary's money goes to buying gift cards for the Open Door Ministry, a day shelter for homeless people that provides food, shower supplies and laundry facilities. Mary enjoys helping Kaly and the people at the Ministry and intends to continue helping. "I'm especially grateful because it taught me a lot. I'm going to try to get out of my safe little world that I tend to hang out in," she says. "I respect Kaly, and if she lets me, I want to let her into my life and family."
