Strangers Buy This Guy A Car After Finding Out He Walks Three Miles To Work
June 30th, 2017
There's not a whole lot of "good" in the news lately. But a group of total strangers buying a man a car after discovering that he walks three miles to and from work every day certainly qualifies. And it's even better that it's centered around automotives. We're still convinced cars bring everyone together.
The guy who recieved the car is Justin Korva, 20, who works in Rockwall, Texas. Local news station Fox 4 reported that local resident Andy Mitchell found out Korva walked to work every day after giving him a ride one time. And on that ride is when Korva told Mitchell he was trying to better himself and save up for a car.
Fox 4 reported that Mitchell set up a donation box at a local restaurant to secretly collect funds in order to surprise Korva with a car. Mitchell and the group collected all of the money needed to buy a $5,500 Camry in less than a week, and they surprised him with it at work.
Not only did the group bring him the Camry, but the group also collected enough for a $500 gas card, two years’ worth of oil changes and a year of car insurance which is pretty incredible. Luckily, the group got the whole thing on video.
So if you do the math: considering that the average person walks a mile in about 15 minutes or more, Korva had to build at least an hour and a half round trip into his workday—rain, shine, hail, you name it.
That’s dedication and work ethic, and if anyone deserves a car with no strings attached, it’s someone who works that hard and doesn't complain. Plus, just think of how many nice people it took to raise well over $6,000 for this gift. The world hasn’t gone down the drain quite yet.
