GelPro is inspired by the people who help others. Every year they give away 250 mats, valued at $30,000 through their Random Acts of Comfort initiative. The company invites customers to nominate individuals who inspire them and Robb and Lisa McMahan, Founders of GelPro, and their team give winners a GelPro Comfort Mat.
Here are a few of the nominations of folks for Random Acts of Comfort. Gelpro mats were sent to each one (names have been removed).
My wife is an incredible person. She always thinks of others . She was diagnosed with M.S. in 2001.She has refused to let this get her down. She takes great care of her mother who has A form of cancer. She has raised our two children, and her nephew who is now attending college. If all that wasn`t enough. She volunteer`s for alanon and ala teen. She attends and heads meetings two or three times a week. She also helps coordinate ala teen retreats. The kids love her and really appreciate all she has to offer. If this isn`t enough, she makes sure we have dinner and dishes and kitchen are cleaned up. This is why I think she deserves one of your Gel Pro Comfort Mats. Also the bunyun on her right foot would a enjoy it. No kidding. Please consider this very giving and caring person. Thank you.
Perry and his co-chefs at My Kitchen Program, Hautemealz and SimplySmartDinnerPlans are on their feet for hours smoking meats, cooking/serving meals to the homeless and teaching foster kids cooking skills through several charitable organizations in the Portland, Oregon area. They deserve happy feet!
Bill is 66 years old. He is a Vietnam veteran that served in the special forces, army. He suffers from agent Orange poisoning, which led to severe diabetes. It disabled him. He has many rough days but doesn’t give up. He has lots of ailments, and one of them is neuropathy in his feet. He likes to work in the garage but standing on the hard floor is very painful. He is a volunteer color guard with the American Legion, and standing at gravesites is hard on him. He also is an American patriot guard rider. I would love to see him have his own gel mat for the garage. I have one in the kitchen and he really feels comfort from it.
My daughter, Rachel, is Mom to Sammy, 4, and Carson, 2. Sammy has Neurofibromatosis type 1, learning disabilities, and severe ADHD. Her days are not easy… She has metal rods in her spine and hip pain on a daily basis. She enjoys baking beautiful cakes for family and friends as it’s therapeutic for her. Through all the tears, MRI’s, and doctor visits she carries on for her boys and I couldn’t be more proud of the loving Mother she is. She is truly deserving of this wonderful comfort mat. Thank you
Eman is a 28 year old mother of 2, cancer survivor who works full time rehabilitating person with strokes and brain injuries. She is a loving wife who devotes herself to taking care of her husband, kids ,mother and 4 younger brothers and sisters. Her father died tragically 3 years ago and she has filled his role since then. Everyone in her life looks up to her for strength and wisdom. She never hesitates to help anyone in need family or not. If that is not enough she is involved with a local women’s shelter and encourages her children to give back to their communities financially and by devoting time. I cant imagine a more suitable person to give this small token of appreciation to. Please consider her for this gift so tj6at she could be a little less pain free by the end of the day.
For 30 years of her 53 year marriage, Marion has been caregiver for her husband who is severely crippled. He has had many surgeries and many times had to be taken to the emergency room in the middle of the night. In addition she prepares wonderful meals and is recruited by her church to donate when they have dinners. Since her husband is disabled, they rely on Medicare and his small pension. By saving coupons, she is able to stay within their budget. She takes advantage of buy get one free which she donates to the food bank. She always remembers everybody’s birthday and anniversary. Her Christmas gifts consist of homemade raviolis and sauce. I’m extremely proud of Marion. I submitted a nomination yesterday for a very deserving person, but Marion is more deserving.
My neighbor, Wendy is a mother of a special needs daughter. She has been a tireless volunteer all her life, but now with her daughter about to graduate from high school, she needed to find a new avenue for her daughter to spend her days. Katie’s cart blossomed! Katie’s cart is rolling cart that Katie pushes through office buildings selling small nutritious goodies to employees. Wendy makes most all the goodies that Katie sells; she stands many hours and many days in her kitchen making cookies, breads, granola mixes and other baked items. Wendy also suffers from deliberating joint pain that leaves her body aching all the time. The GelPro mat would also be used by others as Katie’s cart grows. Wendy plans to hire young special needs adults to help cook goodies in her kitchen. The GelPro mat would be a huge blessing for my sweet humble neighbor.. Thank you for listening to her story.
