Terms & Conditions


Together, we can make a difference with the CBS 5 News series "Pay It Forward."

Here's how it works: Each week we give a viewer $500. That viewer has 60 minutes to give the money to someone who needs a little boost in life.

So what's the hitch? You can't give it to a family member, and our cameras must be able to come along.
