Grandpa Hands Toddler $20 In Target For The Most Heartbreaking Reason
September 19, 2017
A mother's heartwarming story about a kind gesture that happened in an aisle at Target is touching the hearts of many.
Alyssa Hacker, of Coweta, Oklahoma, was at Target shopping with her son, Owen, who grabbed three dinosaur toys off the shelf.
While he was trying to pick out which one he wanted, Owen yelled, "Hi" to an older man walking by. The man turned around and began talking to Owen.
As Owen continued to play with all three dinosaurs, the man reached into his wallet, pulled out a $20 bill and put it in the pocket of Owen's shirt.
"I just lost my 2-year-old grandson last week," he said. "You take this money and buy this boy all three dinosaurs."
The man rubbed Owen's back, wiped away his tears and walked off.
Hacker's full post reads:
"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. He turned around and said "hey sweet boy" he proceeded to play dinosaurs with Owen and with this crazy world we live in I was a little hesitant as too how close he was with Owen. The man got his wallet out and pulled a $20 out, 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. After Owen yelled "thank you" the gentleman turned around and yelled boomer sooner! There is still some good in this world."
