An 8-year-old boy saw a picture of a heartbroken child hit hard by the south Louisiana floods, and he jumped into action.

The picture went viral back in August and captivate the hearts of thousands, including Kameron.

After seeing the picture Kameron went to church and asked for help. That day alone he raised $200, but it wouldn't stop there.

Two months later, Kameron and his mom made a 12-hour drive, hand delivering about $4,000 and an SUV full of donations for the the Comeaux family.

When asked why he did all this, the answer is nothing short of amazing.

Kameron said, "I though to myself, if I was Ethan and I got affected by the flood I'd be sad."

Kameron and his family immediately got back on the road for their trip back home, but they are already planning a visit to their new friends very soon.
