Kayla Cooper was hoping to buy a car at a dealership near San Diego, California, recently. She's working two jobs to pay her way through nursing school, and has borrowed cars from friends to get to work. She hoped to get her own car, an inexpensive Toyota Corolla, but she could not afford the down payment, and she left the dealership in tears.
That same day, a guy named Dan Laguardia was at the dealership to trade his old Scion for a BMW, a nice upgrade. He saw Kayla's disappointment, and asked the sales guy if he had her number. Then he told him to call her back to the dealership, because he wanted to give her his trade-in. When Kayla got back to the dealership, she couldn't believe it at first. But Dan made it official. He signed over the title and gave her the keys. He said he was glad to help, and "if everybody did that for everybody else, we'd be in a much better place."
