Influencer Becca Moore raised more than $230,000 for an Uber driver’s sick daughter who is suffering from cancer. She is using her platform to raise money for this driver’s family.
Previously TikToker Becca Moore was robbed of her phone and credit cards at Coachella while attending a private party with many other influencers. At that time, her Uber driver Raul Torres swooped in to help her. Then she came to know about his family’s struggles, including a father and daughter with cancer. Becca decided to use her platform to help him and his family.
Becca initiated a GoFundMe and set a goal of $1,000. But this goal was attained within an hour. Later she continued to increase the goal and till now she managed more than $230,000 for the Torres family.
She said in a video, “So I got robbed at Coachella and my Uber driver saved me. After I got in his car, I pretended everything was fine but he insisted on staying with me because he had an instinct that I needed help.”
She explained that she just wanted to do was get a new phone. But Raul helped her to do everything including filing a police report, grabbed Starbucks to calm her nerves, and assisted her to track down her phone. She said, “What could’ve turned into an emergency felt like a fun day with a new friend because of Raul. He picked me up at 10 AM and stayed with me until I had everything I needed to get home at 6 PM, which should have been his entire day of work.”
Raul said about the day, “I was just happy to help her, you know what I mean,” he told the outlet. “It’s just weird but you know I couldn’t leave her back there because she didn’t know nobody there so I had to help her out.”
