Uber Driver Helps Nashville Woman Who Was Robbed at Coachella – Los Angeles

Becca Moore flew to Tennessee from Tennessee for a music festival. However, on the third day she had been robbed.

“This guy stole my phone, credit cards and keys out of my purse,”Moore stated.

That’s where Raul Torres from Fresno comes in. Torres works as an Uber driver and he drove down to Coachella to make money to help pay for his daughter’s chemo treatment.

After the robbery, Moore’s hotel called her an Uber and Torres was her driver. Moore was in distress and he stopped driving.

“He helped me file a police report, he bought me food and stayed with me from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. until he knew that he was going to be able to go home, because I had a new rental car,”Moore stated. “He was just paying it forward the entire day, helping me the entire day and he 100% did not have to.”

They spent time together and she learned more about Torres’ story. Both Torres’ father and daughter had been diagnosed with cancer. Friday was the death of his father.

“He didn’t charge me for the entire day and it was like an entire day of work for him and I was like, ‘Why were you so focused on my situation when you’re the one that needed help the entire time,’”She said.

Moore wanted to do something. She used her following on TikTok to promote an online fundraiser raising money for Torres’ family medical bills — providing help that is especially needed right now.

“My original goal for the GoFundMe was $1,000 and in 24 hours it hit $100,000,”She said.

By Monday night, the fundraiser had raised over $140,000.

Although thousands may have left Coachella with wonderful memories and new friends, these two people left with a lasting bond.
