Josh S of Peoria, IL - Created a "care package" of needed survival gear for residents of Puerto Rico and shipped it down to a group of friends he knew from college. "The people of Puerto Rico are suffering and I have first hand knowledge of how hard it is for them and what they need. My friends have no power and no access to clean water; one of the main things I provided were four water purification pumps they can use to safely filter out bacteria and other toxin's from the water.

Jessica E - Washington, IL - My daughter and I went out to dinner on Thursday, 11/11 at Texas Roadhouse in East Peoria. Abigail wanted to give our waitress the $100 as a tip. Out waitress was very friendly, attentive, and worked hard to provide great service. She was in the middle of going back to school and Abigail thought she was well deserving of the $100.

Today I was the recipient of a random act of Pat. A person at Hardee’s on university paid for my breakfast. It was such a lovely way to start my Valentine’s Day. When I got to my desk I visited this site from the card. I love the story of how this came to be! I also felt like I wanted to let you know I am a teacher of students with severe special needs (at C.T. Vivian school) and I am a recipient of a Paws Giving Independence facility dog. Our school loves Ruby, and I want to thank you for supporting that amazing cause! I will be passing along my random act of Pat! Thanks for making the world a happier place!

Hardee's Breakfast Biscuit was one of Pat's favorite breakfast items. On Valentine's Day 2022 $50 was given to pay for drive thru orders for the cars behind me
