“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 10-year-old Leon Ashworth’s mom couldn’t afford to buy him a stuffed panda he desperately wanted, this is the note he wrote on the toy’s box pleading with shoppers not to buy it until his mom could. What happened next was so heartwarming, it will melt your heart
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. She went on Facebook and gushed about her joy. They were supposed to buy the stuffed Panda with Leon’s pocket money at the end of the month but after such kindness by the ASDA staff, Leon asked his mum to donate the 15pounds to charity
How awesome is Leon?
