We all know that Target is a magical place. But sometimes the magic is more than finding a couple of chic throw pillows on clearance or a cool man toy for a bargain. For mom Alyssa Hacker, the magic came through the generosity and kindness of a stranger – and in sharing the story, Alyssa is spreading that magic all around the Internet.
Alyssa shared her story on Facebook, posting: “This momma just cried in the middle of Target. We were at Target waiting on Grammi and we found some dinosaurs. Owen grabbed all 3 and we were trying to pick out which one he wanted when Owen abruptly yelled ‘HI’ at this older man walking past us.”
When the man turned around, he said “hey sweet boy” and started playing with Owen and the dinosaurs. Because of the crazy stories I see on Facebook daily, I’m usually in protective mommy mode. I had a peace about it, but stayed aware.”
Then, Alyssa said, this man, a complete stranger, pulled his wallet out and pulled out a 20-dollar bill.
Says Alyssa: “He put it in Owens pocket on his shirt and said ‘I just lost my 2-year-old grandson last week. You take this money and buy this boy all three dinosaurs’ and rubbed Owens back, wiped his tears and walked off. [Owen’s] the life of the party. He loved the attention and ate it up. And there’s still some good in this world.”
