Boy Leaves Heartbreaking Note On Stuffed Panda Because His Mom Couldn’t Afford It



A stuffed animal might not matter much to the average person, but for a child, it could mean the world. When 10-year-old Leon Ashworth’s mom couldn’t afford to buy him a stuffed panda he desperately wanted, he wrote a forlorn note 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 you.

The boy, who lives in Liverpool, England with his mom, Debbie Ashworth, first saw his beloved ‘Pandy’ at an Asda supermarket. He was willing to wait patiently until his mom’s paycheck came in on June 15th to take the cuddly bear home.  But 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 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.
