When 8-year-old Mahala Moffitt stepped through the doors of a consignment shop called A New Leaf, she never expected to cause such a stir.
She spotted an adorable Mrs. Claus teddy bear up for sale, but it wasn’t the right time. Then, she had an incredible idea, which turned into something far greater.
In the video below, posted on April 18, 2017, the store’s owner, Meg Gaudet, explains, “I just finished decorating the store for Christmas and this young girl came up, and she asked for a pen and paper.” Meg doesn’t think anything of the interaction and hands Mahala a sticky note.
Days later, Meg discovers what the little girl left behind.
Mahala recalls, “I put a little sticky note on her, and it said, ‘Don’t leave, I’ll be back.’”
When Meg sees this, she immediately decides to reunite Mahala with the teddy bear she wanted that day, but was a dollar short of purchasing.
The shop posted on their Facebook page and left a sign on a window at the shop, hoping someone would read it and get ahold of Mahala.
Little did these employees know, Mahala had been in and out of the hospital due to health issues — and that was the reason she hadn’t returned.
Months later, the little girl felt healthy enough to reunite with her special bear, which she did, thanks to the employees.
