Two days ago I asked my friends on facebook if anyone would be interested in donating a gift or service for a giveaway to help YPAC generate traffic to our facebook page. I was amazed that within 1 hour 10 generous friends had donated something and wanted to help in any way they could. From there, I decided that I wanted to extend the generosity and help out our community in some way. I had read an article in the Yorkville Patch that the Kendall County Food Pantry was in desperate need of food as their donations were down by 30% and their giving was up by 300%! YPAC is donating 1 food item for every new “like” we receive from now until Halloween. Currently we are at 22 after just one day.
This morning I received a text from my dear friend Madison saying that her family would like to “match” our donation to the Kendall County Food Pantry. This generosity from my friend is the kind that changes the world. I believe generosity is contagious and it was proven shortly after that when my girlfriend Jen messaged me that she and her family would also match our donation and give to her pantry where she lives. In my previous post I talked about the power of social media and this is yet another example!! I am humbled by this generosity my friends have shown and my hope and prayer is that it will continue to spread.

I encourage you to jump on the generosity train,
