This is ‘Pandy,’ a cuddly toy that stole the heart of 10-year-old Leon Ashworth from Liverpool, England
Sadly, his mom couldn’t afford to buy Pandy until payday, so he left a solemn note with the cuddly bear
My mum [doesn’t] have [enough] money, so she’s [buying] me Pandy [Friday] next week 15 June. So please don’t [buy] him, it will make me cry. Thank you so much from Hopeful [Future] Owner. Panda’s name – Pandy!
When the Asda supermarket staff noticed the note, they tracked Leon down and invited him back to the store…
…Where they surprised him with Pandy, a gift they pitched in their own money to buy
Leon was overjoyed, but his mom, who lost a premature baby in January, was even more touched
The Internet also had major feels, as well as incredible Asda staff stories of their own
Even the smallest gestures of kindness can mean the world to someone else, so pay it forward!
