'Oprah's Big Give' contestant Eric donates to the Police Athletics Club.

For his second stop, Eric heads to COPE North, a school where young mothers can bring their children while they continue their education. Eric buys the school items off its wish list, including treadmills and bikes, but the shopping takes longer than expected, and Eric doesn't make it back to pay for Ralph White's funeral.

Because of time constraints, Eric's last focus is gift cards. Although he knows he is being judged on creativity, he figures this is a quick way to spend a lot of money.

"It bummed me out that I didn't have time to make it to Ralph White's funeral," Eric says. "So the last thing I did was make a pretty large donation to the Police Athletics Club, which basically bought athletic gear for all the Little League kids, and that was pretty cool."
