One little girl got a gift card with a note while shopping at a toy story, and the meaning behind the act of kindness will leave you misty eyed.
Caitlin Foster of Northern Ireland took her daughter, Lacey, to a toy store called Smyth's to pick something out with the £10 her child had been gifted from her grandmother.
“We had been at my granny’s house, who lives round the corner from Smyth’s. And she had gave Lacey £10 to get herself a toy,” Caitlin shared.
While Lacey was shopping around, three employees had come up to Caitlin and gave her a £50 gift card for her daughter to use. It turns out that someone had bought it and asked the store workers to find a child of pre-school age in the store to give it to.

“She was trying to pick toys that were more than £10 but I kept telling her she had to stick to it, which obviously was a hard choice to make for her," said Caitlin. "We were in the aisle and three Smyth’s staff members came over. I am guessing one was the manager. And they asked if they could give me the gift card. And that it had been left in by a woman in memory of her daughter who would have turned four that day. I just started to cry, and then the workers were crying too. It was very emotional. They said they had been crying all morning since they found out about the card.”
What a sweet way for that mother to honor her daughter, whose name was Juno. Our hearts go out to her after her incredible loss.
Caitlin wanted to share about this experience on social media in case the mother saw it and wanted to know who her gift went to.
“And all I can say is if Juno’s mummy is reading this, I just want to say a huge thank you," Caitlin shared. "She made my wee girl so happy and I am thinking about her and her family. It is very kind what she has done, and it has inspired other people to do the same.”
