'Oprah's Big Give' contestant Rachael quilts at the Palmetto Senior Center.

10 of 15
Rachael spends day two of the road trip at Palmetto Senior Center, where she works with the center's director, Patti. Rachael joins the band, helps serve lunch, leads a dance class and is put to work in the quilting room.

While she's working, Rachael finds out that the quilts are being sold to raise profits for 13-year-old Eli, who is in need of back surgery because of a spinal cord curvature that complicates his breathing. To show her support, Rachael decides to purchase a quilt for $1,000—much more than the suggested price. She gives $500 of that to the center and $500 to Eli.
