New Hampshire man becomes Internet sensation on Facebook

(WWBT) -

In just one week, a New Hampshire man became an Internet sensation after a Facebook post by a stranger went viral.

Seven days and more than 20,000 shares later, Kyle Bigler's life has completely changed.

Dunkin Donuts customer Joanna Griffiths posted this photo of Bigler, who she thought needed recognition for his hard work and dedication.

Bigler says she works two full-time minimum wage jobs without a car, which means he has to walk eight miles each way between his workplaces.

"I was like, 'What are you doing here?' I'm like, 'You were working at 7:30 this morning. Was that you walking?' And he was like, 'Yup,'" Griffiths said.

"There are jobs everywhere. You just have to look," Bigler said. "I mean, if it's a problem with someone not having a vehicle, I mean, I walk eight miles."

The social media spotlight caught the attention of a car dealership, earning him a free car. 

Now more strangers are reaching out to offer him a better job.

Bigler says he's doing it all for his son, and based on the reaction on social media, he's certainly inspiring more people.
