An anonymous shopper is being praised for spending thousands of dollars on electrical generators to benefit Hurricane Dorian victims in the Bahamas.
The man was photographed by Alec Sprague earlier this week at a Costco store in Jacksonville, Florida.
Sprague had been buying a generator of his own when he learned that his fellow shopper was buying 100 generators for $450 apiece so he could send them to Bahamian communities affected by the devastating storm.
The man also bought a variety of different meals and foodstuffs that will be shipped to the islands along with the generators. In total, he spent $49,285.
“It’s important that we help each other out. It’s better than just sitting there,” the man told CNN. “You see a need and you fill it.”
The goods are set to be shipped by boat through the Errol Thurston Bahamas Hurricane Relief Fund.
Though the man asked news reporters to withhold his name, Sprague snapped a photo of the unidentified benefactor and published it to Facebook. In just 24 hours, the post has been shared more than 34,000 times.
“All I could do was shake his hand and thank him!” wrote Sprague. “There still are good people in the world!”
