Christmas Kindness True Story

I ordered a gift for my niece Nichol's son Doug from Toy R' Us. Somehow the town was wrong....it seems Toy R' Us, changed the town..I did not notice on the order.

Yesterday morning I received a photo call from a man, asking me I had shipped a toy to Douglas. I said yes. Well it was delivered to his restaurant. One of his employees signed for it not realizing the mistake. The man tried contacting UPS, no success, saw my address and phone number and decided to call me.

The kind stranger was willing to deliver to her house...I decided the man really went out of his way, instead called Nichol at work and she knows where his restaurant is located and is picking up the gift.

My gift to Dougie meant a lot more, experiencing the kindness, honesty from a stranger. Thank you to the owner of Gunnar's Landing Restaurant, in Belvidere, NJ
