James Robertson, 56-year-old guy who walks 21 miles round-trip to work every day and has never missed a day. His car broke down more than a decade ago, his factory job doesn't pay enough to buy a new one, and there's almost no bus service where he lives.

He leaves his house at 8am every day to make his shift that starts at 2pm, then he leaves work at 10pm, and doesn't get home until 4am most nights. He can't afford to move closer and can't get another job.

It looks like that won't be the case much longer though.

After an article came out about Robertson, a 19-year-old college student who'd never met James set up a page on GoFundMe.com, to raise $25,000 to buy him a car.

In the first two days, people from all over the country donated almost $300,000 to help him out.


He'll be able to bank it too, because a local car dealership has already offered to give him a brand new car.
