Strangers donate money to buy a car for a young man who walks 3 miles to work every day in the sweltering heat.

A man’s tiny act of compassion to a stranger led to a larger act of generosity that has benefited both of their lives. Andy Mitchell was driving in Rockwall, Texas, on a hot summer day (35°C), when he observed a young man dressed in a fast food outfit walking down the side of the road.

He came to a halt and offered 20-year-old Justin Korva a ride since it was too hot to walk.

Andy discovered that the young man walked 3 miles every day to and from work and home. “Meet my pal Justin!” Andy said on Facebook after the event. This morning, I picked up this young man and drove him to Taco Casa. He told me that he walks three miles to work and three kilometers home every day. All I have to say to those who say they want to work but can’t find one or don’t have a vehicle is, “You don’t want it hard enough!”

Andy also discovered that Justin was adamant about saving money for a car. Hundreds of people in the community read Andy’s post on social media about his meeting with Justin.

Meet my friend justin! I picked this boy up this am and gave him a ride to work at taco casa. He told me he walks 3 miles to work and home everyday. To all the people that say they want to work but can’t find a job or don’t have a vehicle all I can say is you don’t want it bad enough! As Wade Anders would say leave it better than you found it!

Samee Dowlatshahi, proprietor of Samee’s Pizza Getti Italian Bistro & Lounge in Rockwell, was one of the persons who observed it. He volunteered to install a donation box inside his pizza shop to assist Justin in purchasing a vehicle. He and Andy had raised more than $5,500 in just two days!

Danny Rawls, Dowlatshahi’s friend and general sales manager at Toyota of Rockwall, heard about it. When he learned of the men’s scheme, he asked his general manager whether they might assist the young man.

“I showed it to my general manager and said, ‘Hey, let’s help the kid,'” she added. Rawls told CBS News, “It seems like a terrific narrative.”

His supervisor agreed, and the price of a 2004 Toyota Camry they were selling was decreased. They soon connected with Dowlatshahi and Andy, and the men purchased the automobile with enough money left over to cover a year’s worth of car insurance, two years’ worth of oil maintenance, and a $500 petrol card.

They then drove to Justin’s place of business and requested him to come outside. Several folks took out their phones to capture the moment on film.

“Justin, you have no idea how many people wanted to assist you,” Andy replied. “So, friend, instead of walking to work, you’re going to drive this car from now on.”

“Are you serious?” Justin questioned, astonished.

“It’s your vehicle!” “This is your vehicle,” Andy stated again.

As he proceeded toward the car, Justin was filled with emotion and offered each man a hug, wiping tears from his eyes.

“We simply want you to know that nothing makes us happier in this community than having someone who works hard,” Dowlatshahi remarked. “It’s something we’re quite proud of.” I can’t believe you walked even one mile in this heat.”
Rawls subsequently stated, “He’s a really humble young man and accepted it with stride.” “Certainly, there couldn’t have been a more deserved individual.”

More people like this are needed in the world. In the video below, Justin is shown receiving his surprise, and you can share this touching story with your friends and family.
