Imagine being 11-years-old and shopping for a new toy. As you’re shopping you find an envelope with $40.00 in it! That’s exactly what happened to Rory in the Wainwright Walmart last weekend. “My daughter, she’s 11 years old, and any little girl likes to spend money if they can. She was really excited. She was super excited and… I was kind of shocked. You don’t see this happen very often. I’ve never seen it happen myself,” said Rory’s Dad Robin. The money was in an envelope in the toy aisle with the words “please take me” written in big black letters. In the envelope was a card with the money and this message.
“Today is the day we lost our nan two years ago,” read the note. “We want to do a few good deeds in her memory. Our nan was a very special person, always willing to help out in any way. My nan’s favourite people in her life were the little people in her life. She had six grandkids, two sons, tons of nieces/nephews. She also fostered many kids through the years. Take this money and spoil your favourite little people today!”
“I just really want to let this family know that this has been found and what they asked has actually happened. It’s such a special way to remember somebody who obviously meant so much to them. I think everybody’s lost somebody in their life but this is a pretty unique and special way to remember them.” says Robin.
