In fact, thousands of Houstonians welcomed Lindner into their home and started a GoFundMe account to buy him a vacation after Harvey.

On Wednesday, Mayor Sylvester Turner declared May 2 as "Jeff Linder Day" in Houston.

"Incredible honor from the City of Houston (Sylvester Turner) and Family Houston today. Thank you," Lindner tweeted.
