Update on the Backabuddy crowdfunding campaign for petrol attendant Nkosikho Mbele.

Donations are still pouring in for petrol attendant Nkosikho Mbele.

The Backabuddy campaign has officially passed the R500,000 mark.

The 28-year-old petrol attendant inspired many South Africans when he paid R100 out of his pocket to top up the tank of a motorist who stopped for fuel but had forgotten her bank card.

The story has gained more traction with giant company Shell pledging to donate R500,000 to a charity of Mbele's choice.
