Florida man buys over 100 generators to send to the Bahamas – “There still are good people in the world”
Kindness is Majic. It makes us feel good to help others, but it also makes us feel good to watch people help others. And while some acts of kindness go unnoticed, one Jacksonville man has become extremely popular on social media for his random act of kindness.
Alec Sprague, a Jacksonville resident, told News4Jax he went to a Costco in Jacksonville to buy a generator, and he saw a man purchasing over 100 of them.
The man, who’s name is being kept anonymous, was purchasing the generators and food to send to the Bahamas.
Sprague said the generators cost around $450 each. So inspired by what he was seeing, he made a post on Facebook to share the kindness with others.
“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!” the post said. “All I could do was shake his hand and thank him! There still are good people in the world!”
The post was shared 17,000 times in three hours. Reports indicate that this was made possible through the “Errol Thurston Bahamas Hurricane Relief Fund.” You can learn more and contribute to the fund by visiting their GoFundMe page here.
