This Nurse Showed How His Truck Looked After Saving Lives In The California Fires And Got A Response From Toyota

Published 6 years ago

With over 7,500 fires during 2018, this year’s wildfires raging in California are already being called one of the most destructive in the state’s history. And even though they already claimed the lives of 56 people, there are still brave people out there who are doing their best to save as many lives as possible.

Allyn Pierce, a nurse who recently risked his life to save people from the California fires, has posted a picture of how his Toyota truck looked afterward. Toyota saw the post and decided to reward the hero with a brand new truck – a small yet significant gesture for a man who risked it all to save others.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
