Kid Uses 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 

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."
