Hurricane Dorian: A Guy Bought 100 Generators, and a Kid Used His Birthday Cash to Help Evacuees
Hurricane Dorian has been lashing the East Coast after parking itself over the Bahamas this week. And we’ve seen a few really inspiring stories about people stepping up to help . . .
A guy in Jacksonville went to Costco on Wednesday to get a generator. And while he was there, he saw another guy buying over a HUNDRED generators to send to the Bahamas. Each one cost $450. So we’re talking at least 45 grand.
Turns out the money came from a fundraiser called “Errol Thurston Bahamas Hurricane Relief.” If you want to donate, just search for it on GoFundMe.com. (Here are photos.)
And in South Carolina, a six-year-old named Jermaine Bell was supposed to go to Disney World for his birthday. But now he’s using the money to help hurricane victims instead.
He bought a bunch of hot dogs and snacks. Then he set up a stand on the side of the road and gave out FREE FOOD to people who were evacuating.
He said he just wanted to lift their spirits a little and make sure they had something to eat. Adding that his philosophy is, quote, “Live to give.”
