After the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas, one man’s act of kindness is putting back a lot of smiles on the people there.
Jacksonville resident, Alec Sprague, went to Costco off Collins Road to buy a generator for himself, and witnessed a man buying more than 100 of them for an unusual cause.
The unnamed man, reportedly bought the generators and food to send to the Bahamas.
Sprague wrote on his Facebook that each generator costs around $450 apiece. “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 became viral and was shared 17,000 times in three hours.

It was learned that this was possible through the “Errol Thurston Bahamas Hurricane Relief Fund.”
This historic tragedy in the Bahamas calls for people all over to help them in their time of need, we must do all we can to help our suffering brothers and sisters, just as the Bible tells us, in 2 Corinthians 9:11 “You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way”
