Jermaine Bell was supposed to spend his seventh birthday at Disney World. He’d saved up money to take his family on a trip to Animal Kingdom in Florida.
Instead, he emptied his piggy bank to buy hundreds of hot dogs and serve them for free to Hurricane Dorian evacuees passing through their South Carolina town.
The 6-year-old opened a hot dog stand along the side of a busy road in Allendale and offered those escaping the coast free franks, water, chips and prayers.
It’s impossible to imagine this story ending with anything other than a freebie trip, isn’t it?
After all, to be usefully capitalist about it, how many acres of newsprint will Disney buy with a couple of compo tickets?
