A woman from Georgia gifted a new car to a student as he walk 7 miles to work every day, Fox News reports. Jayden Sutton is an 18-year old boy who is a high school senior from Cobb Country, Georgia. Sutton is keen on finishing up his school year. Usually, he returns home from school at around 3:30 pm every day.

And then he walks for his work at a restaurant which is a 6 to 7-hour shift and after completing his work he walks again to return home.

So, each day he walks for nearly 7 miles, he is focused on saving up to afford a car, especially after his mother was in an ac-cident totaling her vehicle. One rainy day, a local Atlanta resident Lavonda Wright Myers saw Sutton walking in the rain for his work. She offered him a ride and on their way she learned about Sutton’s story and how he walks every day as he couldn’t afford an Uber ride daily. He also states he is hoping to buy a car on his own.

After dropping him off, Myers was touched by his determination, and her eyes were filled with tears. Sutton said, “Mam, I walk because I have to.” Myers told the reporters, “he was smiling with good spirits and that’s a kid worth blessing.” With that Myers decided to help Sutton and share his story online and set up a GoFundMe page. Within two days she has raised $6,635 donations. Then she reached a car dealer and requested to drop the price from $7800 to $7000 and added $635 on her own. And finally, she purchased a car for Sutton.

When Sutton arrived at the Honda dealership he was totally unaware that he is going to leave the place with a brand new car. Sutton told Myers, “I just want to thank you very much, you don’t understand how much this means to me.” He further said, “I knew that if I had to work every day to afford a car, that’s what I was going to do. If you trying to achieve a goal keep doing it, you might get some help and that is what happened to me.”

On the other hand, Myers was grateful that she could lend a helping hand. She said, “with hate and division afflicting this world, we all need more love and kindness. I’m determined to play my part, one person at a time.” We congratulate Jayden for his new car and Lavonda for her kindness.
