The boy, six-year-old Jermaine Belle of Allendale, South Carolina, decided to give up the money he was saving for a Walt Disney World vacation to buy hot dogs, chips, and water for people who had evacuated their homes due to Hurricane Dorian. He is giving away the food and water completely free along highway 125 near a local post office.
Jermaine’s kind heart and willingness to help those in need is something that all of us can learn from. As you can see in the video below, he has a table full of snacks and water, and he’s holding up a sign to advertise to passersby who may need a little positivity and a pick-me-up amid the storm.
Take a look:
Jermaine’s mother, JustElle Creech, commented on social media after a local news station shared the story of her son’s good deed. “Good morning everyone, we are beyond grateful for your kind words and thoughtfulness. We’ve always talked about gratitude and the importance of being selfless when others are in need . Jermaine is my 6 year old son and he is a fun loving little boy with a huge heart. Again we appreciate your kindness and hope that his small gesture will encourage others to “share a little love” ☺️ thanks !”
Creech originally shared a heartwarming video of her son explaining how he chose to host a free food and water giveaway to Hurricane Dorian evacuees. In the caption of the video, Creech writes, “He decided to use some of his Disney Trip Birthday money to purchase and give out hotdogs, chips, and drinks to Dorian Evacuees… if you see him in Allendale, SC; honk your horn, or give him a wave to let him know that he’s doing a great job!”
We often practice selflessness and make it a purpose to express the importance of gratitude in our family. Jermaine Jay's Fun Farm asked if Labor Day meant the whole week in SC and little did i know he had big plans. He decided to use some of his Disney Trip Birthday money to purchase and give out hotdogs, chips, and drinks to Dorian Evacuees… if you see him in Allendale,SC; honk your horn, or give him a wave to let him know that he’s doing a great job! #Proudmom ?Please share so we can spread the word to as many people as possible… thanks in advance
