He never considered keeping the money

An Army medic named Luis Ocampo left his home in Charlotte, North Carolina, when his national guard unit was called up to help with Hurricane Florence relief. While he was gone, someone broke into his vacant house and looted it. They stole his computer and many other valuables.

Some of his friends started a GoFundMe campaign to replace what was stolen. Their goal was $5,000, but they raised $15,000. That's when Luis told them to stop taking donations. He said he could not take advantage of people's generosity. So he gave away every dollar he didn't need. Much of it went to a charity called Soldiers and Airmen Assistance Fund.
