Instead of buying the video game console, Hector Montoya used the money he raised to buy smoke detectors. He had the idea after he heard that a mother and her child died in a fire.

Montoya teamed up with the Grand Prairie Fire Department to install 100 new smoke detectors to people who needed them. He had spent a year raising money so he could buy a PS4 but he decided to make a change in the world instead.
