The article focuses on instances of charity work done by various people. Father of Alice Hunt has Crohn's disease and had many surgeries. Blood transfusions from anonymous donors saved his life. So, in honor of the National Donor Day, he is donating blood. Federico Hewson started the organization Valentine Peace Project. It handed out flowers on February 14, with message of peace. The leaky roof of the house of Helen Wise was replaced by a new roof with the help of donation.
