A Jacksonville 7-year-old boy who donated his Disney World trip birthday savings to feed Hurricane Dorian evacuees was rewarded by the theme park.
Jermaine Bell of Jacksonville, who turned 7 on Sunday, received a special visit from Disney representative Marilyn West and a bus filled with cast members and characters, according to Orlando Weekly.
Jermaine, who had been visiting grandmother Aretha Grant in South Carolina, saw that people were fleeing Dorian's path and decided to use the money that he had been saving for over a year to help feed them. He set up a tent with signs along Highway 125 in Allendale and gave away free hot dogs, chips, and water.
"I want to be generous and live to give," Jermaine told WJBF-TV. "The people that are traveling to go to places, I wanted them to have some food to eat, so they can enjoy the ride to the place that they're going to stay at."

But Jermaine, who didn’t give up on his wish to go to Disney, was offered a VIP getaway experience for later in September, and Delta Airlines stepped up and offered him airfare.
