- A boy left a heartbreaking note for those who want to buy the stuffed panda that his mother cannot afford
- 10-year-old Leon Ashworth asked other shoppers not to buy the toy because it will make him cry
- The supermarket tracked the boy and gave him the toy
“Please don’t buy him, it will make me cry.”
This was part of the note that a 10-year-old boy had written on the box of a stuffed panda being sold in a supermarket in England.
In an article written by Stella of Bored Panda, it was disclosed that Leon Ashworth saw a toy panda in Asda supermarket and instantly fell in love with it. His mother, however, did not have enough money that time so he had to wait for her next paycheck.
“My mum doesn’t have enough money to buy me so she’s buying me Pandy on Friday next week 15 June. So please don’t buy him as it will make me cry, thank you so much from hopeful future owner. Panda’s name: Pandy,” Leon wrote.
To find the child, Asda posted the note on Facebook.
“Find Pandy’s new home, a little boy really wanted this teddy and left this in the toy aisle. Last week at Asda Hunts Cross and we have not seen him since . Let’s try and find them and help them see this by sharing it around,” David Bateman wrote.
The post eventually got the attention of Debbie Ashworth who immediately recognized her son’s handwriting. The Asda crew invited the mom and her son to go back to the store. When they went back, the toy was given to Leon.
“This is the best day of my life,” he expressed.
And we can’t agree more. ^_^
