A school bus driver in the Philadelphia suburb of Mount Laurel, New Jersey will likely have to call out sick on Monday because he's going to have a once-in-a-lifetime weekend.
Gary Kelmer, a lifelong Philadelphia Eagles fan, set out on his usual afternoon route this past Monday, only there was something very unusual about it. As he pulled up to the last stop, he was met by a crowd of people all in Eagles gear.
He was delighted to see a crowd of parents wearing Eagles shirts but was a little confused, until he was presented with a huge surprise.
Unbeknownst to him, the parents raised $5,000 in a GoFundMe campaign to send Gary and his wife to Minnesota this weekend to attend the Super Bowl.
Gary has been driving the school bus for 26 years and is beloved by the community. He was taken aback by the generous gesture and said, "I just had no idea. No idea that I had so many followers over these years."
