Mister Rogers was right — in any disaster look for the helpers. After Hurricane Dorian leveled most of the Bahamas, a man walked into a Costco in Jacksonville, Florida and purchased 100 generators to send to the Bahamas, with a bill totaling $49,285.70.
Most of the money went toward the generators, which cost a pricey $450 each. The farmer, who wishes to remain anonymous, also bought up peas, beans, coffee, salt, and pepper to send to the relief efforts.
The only reason we’re even hearing about it is that a customer at Costco at the time captured some photos, and went up to the man to thank him.
“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! Posted by Alec Sprague.’
