As shown in the video above a little boy in Colorado is on his way to fulfilling his dream of becoming a UPS driver thanks to a gift from the shipping company.
Four-year-old Carson Knight became fascinated with the company after developing a special relationship with a delivery driver. The story starts with Mr. Ernie.
“When Carson was born, he couldn’t drink milk,” his mother Karen explains. “So they sent formula, which is why Mr. Ernie would deliver quite a few times to our house.”
At first Carson would just watch Mr. Ernie from the window.
“For four years Mr. Ernie delivered that special milk,” Karen said. “He asked him at about 2 1/2, ‘You wanna see my truck?’ And he took off with Ernie like there was no tomorrow.”
With every delivery Ernie would spend extra time with Carson, showing him his truck.
UPS made a video about Ernie and Carson’s special friendship, and surprised him with a special delivery - his very own miniature UPS truck.
