As Hurricane Dorian continues to rage on in the Bahamas and certain parts of the United States, many good people keep doing good things to help others. They're not looking for anything in return, either; they just want to help in some way so that those caught in the worst of the hurricane are okay. Whether it's to get people and/or pets to safety or donating money to relief efforts, many are pitching in however possible.
In Jacksonville, Florida, one man decided to help out by using his wallet. Resident Alec Sprague was at a Jacksonville Costco to purchase a generator when he saw a man purchase over 100 generators. The man, who has gone unidentified, told Sprague that he was them and some food to send over to the Bahamas.
"Was just in Cosco off Collins getting a generator (at $450 each) and this guy right here is purchasing over 100 generators and food to send to the Bahamas! All I could do was shake his hand and thank him! There still are good people in the world!" Sprague wrote in a Facebook post. That post was shared about 17 000 times in the first three hours after it'd gone live.
With these generators said to retail at $450 USD before taxes at Costco, it's possible that this transaction alone cost the anonymous good Samaritan tens of thousands of dollars, if not more than that. Add in the cost of however much food was purchased for the people of the Bahamas, and it's safe to say that a lot of money was spent to send a lot of vital supplies to those struggling with Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas.
The good Samaritan's name has yet to be publicized- and there's a chance that it never will. However, it's since come to light that the generous generator purchase may have happened thanks to the Errol Thurston Bahamas Hurricane Relief Fund. This is yet another example that goes to show just how generous people can be- no matter how nasty Mother Nature's power is.
