6-year-old Jermaine Bell spent more than a year saving money for a forthcoming birthday trip to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
However, Hurricane Dorian changed the young Jacksonville, Florida resident’s plans in a HUGE way. Millions of people have since been inspired by the story of this incredible young man’s selfless act of compassion.
As the Hurricane approached the coast of South Carolina, Jermaine emptied his piggy bank and bought hundreds of hot dogs, bags of chips and bottled water.
The 6-year-old boy served the above-mentioned items free of charge to Hurricane evacuees who passed through the South Carolina town where he was visiting his grandmother.
Yesterday, Jermaine celebrated his 7th birthday, when Mickey Mouse and a group of Walt Disney World cast members made a surprise visit to tell Jermaine that he and his family are going to Walt Disney World after all.
The family will enjoy a VIP getaway at the vacation kingdom later this month. Stay tuned to Orlando Theme Park Zone for coverage of the Jermaine’s trip.
