A Washington woman says she was left in tears after finding a sticky note on a package of diapers.
Aman Da Elle went shopping at a Tacoma Safeway grocery store to buy diapers for her child recently. As she brought the diapers up to the register to pay, she noticed something unusual on the outside of the package.
“I had to make an emergency diaper run at Safeway on 12th St in Tacoma on Christmas Eve,” Aman said in a Facebook post. “As I walked to the register, I felt what I thought was a coupon taped onto the plastic, turned over the package in my hand, and found this note.”
The note left on the package read, “From one parent to another. Merry Christmas!”
Underneath the sticky note was a $20 bill taped to the packaging, left by the generous stranger to cover the cost of the diapers.
Aman, surprised by the random act of kindness, posted on her local news station’s Facebook page to share the heartwarming story.
“[If] the person who did this for me sees my message, I just want you to know it couldn’t have come at a better time,” Aman wrote in a comment on the post. “I was feeling overwhelmed and overlooked and you made me feel so special and I’ll always be so grateful for it. Merry Christmas!”
Aman let the store manager know what happened,and he said that she was the fifth person to share the same story, Mad World News reports.
