    A Man Walked 11 Miles To Work Each Day, So His Coworkers Got Him A Car

    I'm not crying happy tears, you are.

    This is Trenton Lewis, a 21-year-old single father living in Little Rock, Arkansas.

    As Trenton explained to KATV, without a car, his 5½-mile commute to work could often take two or three hours. Lewis would often wake up at midnight in order to make it to work on time.

    "[My job] got more important to me when I had my daughter," he said. "I knew I had to step up."

    When his coworkers found out about his time-intensive commute, they felt they had to do something to help out.

    The kind action blew Trenton away.

    As Kenneth Bryant notes in the video, many of the people who donated to Trenton's car fund had never even met him.

    But, he continued, "sometimes, if you hang around good people, good things happen."
