Jakub Patecki, also known as "Patec," is a man with a big heart. The influencer participated in a charity event where he spent time with children in the hospital's oncology ward. He helped bring joy to the young patients and gave them gifts.

Jakub Patecki, known on social media as 'Patec', is a Polish YouTuber and influencer. He rose to fame by collaborating with Karol ‘Friz’ Wiśniewski and creating content for the Ekipa YouTube channel. This influencer group was immensely popular for several years, producing videos for children and young people. After the group disbanded, Jakub Patecki embarked on a solo career, which has been highly successful.

Following the break-up of Ekipa, Jakub Patecki focused on building his own social media presence. His YouTube channel boasts over one and a half million subscribers, and he has more than two million followers on Instagram. For a time, Patecki focused on travel content, showcasing different cultures and cuisines around the world. In May 2024, he achieved the remarkable feat of climbing Mount Everest. Alongside his social media activities, Patec is also actively involved in charity work.

During his visits, he talked to the young patients and gave them various gifts, spreading smiles, joy, and strength. Without a doubt, he brightened the spirits of the children, even if just for a moment.

"Jakub Patecki's unique campaign, in collaboration with the Cancer Fighters Foundation, organises meetings with oncology patients in various cities across Poland. This initiative aims to bring joy and support to those battling cancer. During these visits, gifts such as teddy bears and LEGO sets are distributed, and meetings are held to lift the spirits of patients and their families," reads a post on dropsy.app's Instagram profile.
