A Stuffed Animal Matters
--by alisamom, posted Aug 8, 2017
The boy, who lives in Liverpool, England with his mom, Debbie Ashworth, first saw his beloved ‘Pandy’ at an Asda supermarket, the British equivalent of Wal-Mart. Though he was willing to wait patiently until his mom’s paycheck came in on June 15th to take the cuddly bear home, the store’s staff decided to do something incredibly thoughtful after they noticed Leon’s scribbled letter.
In search of the young author, whom they didn’t know at the time, they posted the note on Facebook – and eventually attracted the attention of Debbie Ashworth, who immediately recognized her son’s handwriting. The Asda crew invited the mom and her son back to the store, and had a wonderful surprise waiting for them. “This is the best day of my life,” Leon remarked to his mom. For Debbie, who lost a prematurely-born son in January and has struggled since, the gesture was even more meaningful".
