Kristi's Kids Presents: Pay it Forward
Do you know an outstanding young Tucsonan who is "Paying it Forward?"
Just like the character in the 2000 movie "Pay it Forward," dozens of young people in Tucson are going above and beyond to benefit others in our community, and we want to recognize them!
Fill out the form to the right and tell us about a young person in your life who is doing something unique, extraordinary, unusual, or just kind to benefit others in our community, and we may do a special Kristi's Kids feature about how they're paying it forward.
We hope to inspire other Tucsonans to "Pay it Forward," and make the Tucson community a better place for everyone!
