TikTok influencer Becca Moore recently shared a story on social media that will restore your faith in humanity. An Uber driver helped her after she was robbed, so she decided to return the favor by raising $260,000 for him and his family on GoFund Me.
Back in April, Moore posted a video in which she described how she was robbed while at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. All her belongings, including her wallet and phone, were stolen, and she found herself in a tough situation. Luckily, the hotel staff provided her with an Uber so she could get to the store in order to get a new phone.
When the store couldn’t provide her with a new phone, her Uber driver Raul Torres decided to step in. He took Moore to the police station, bought her margaritas, and later helped her get her phone back.
During their time together, Torres told Moore that he is working as an Uber driver in order to help his family. His daughter was going through chemotherapy while his father had terminal cancer. But despite all of his worries, he wanted to make sure Moore could get back home safely.
Moved by Torres’ generosity, Moore decided to set up a GoFund Me campaign for him in order to help him with the expenses. People absolutely loved the story and were so amazed by Torres that they contributed $50,000 in just one day. At the time of the writing, the figure reached $260K.
Besides getting much-needed money for his family, Torres also got a friend for life. Moore has since shared several clips in which the two are hanging out, and she even met his family.
