Detroit Man Walks 21 Miles to Work Every Day
This is one of those incredible stories that will renew your faith in humanity.
The Detroit News published a story Sunday about 56-year-old James Robertson of Detroit, who walks 21 miles a day to get to and from work... and has NEVER MISSED A DAY. James' car broke down over 10 years ago, and he was unable to afford to fix it on his factory salary. There's not really any bus service where he lives, and he can't afford to live anywhere closer, so James leaves his house every day at 8am to make it to his 2pm shift. He then leaves work at 10pm, and makes it home around 4am, which means he gets about 2 hours of sleep a night.
Well, James won't be walking to work anymore! A 19-year-old college student set up a GoFundMe.com page to raise $5,000 to get James a car, and it has made almost $300,000 in only 3 days! And, on top of that, a dealership has offered to GIVE James a brand new car!
James is incredibly thankful for the donations.
