At 105 years young, Edythe Kirchmaier is Facebook’s oldest user. In fact, when she signed up to the site last year, Facebook had to recode its system to recognize 1908 as a birth year.

This news made her somewhat of a celebrity, gathering more than 123,000 Likes, and appearances on The Tonight Show and The Ellen DeGeneres show.

Her publicity also was great for Direct Relief, a charity that Kirchmaier donates most of her time to.

So when word spread that Kirchmaier was having car troubles, the Internet responded.

One man decided to send her a brand new Honda Civic after reading a post that she was having car troubles, which would take away from her time at the charity.

Driving at a hundred and five,
It’s amazing that she is alive,
She had an old car,
That wouldn’t go far,
Now she’s got a new one to drive.

She’s the oldest one on Facebook,
Don’t believe it? Just take a look,
She’s been on TV,
For people to see,
What’s next? Will she write a book?
