Texas Community Rallies to Buy Car for Man Who Walked to Work Each Day

Sometimes, just when you think you’ve lost faith in humanity, you come across a story like this one. A selfless story, where strangers change a Texas man’s life.

According to FOX LA20-year-old Justin Korva was walking three miles to his job every day. Local resident Andy Mitchell first learned about Korva’s story after giving him a ride to work one day. According to Mitchell, Korva had explained during the ride that he was trying to better himself — saving up for a car of his own.

After that, Mitchell decided he needed to help. Along with a few friends, Mitchell set up a donation box at a nearby restaurant.

The community readily pitched in, and they were able to buy Korva a new Toyota Camry; there was enough extra cash to also get him a $500 gas card, two years of free oil changes, and one year of car insurance. “That’s why I was saving for to get a car,” Korva told FOX. “It’s just an instant blessing, an instant surprise.”

Mitchell’s wife captured the incredible gesture on video. Korva seemed absolutely humbled by the gift, and he hopes that someday, he’ll be able to help someone out in a similar fashion. Karma, guys. Karma.
