Mom feels something stuck to diaper package—after telling manager, his response surprised her

Christmas is the season of giving, and is a time when many people rush to and fro to buy gifts for their family and friends. But for one mom, she was rushing to buy diapers for her child when she encountered a surprise that couldn’t have come at a better time.

On Christmas Eve in 2015, Aman Da Elle of Tacoma, Washington, had to do some last-minute shopping at a Safeway grocery store. It was not for a gift that she forgot to buy, but a daily necessity for her child—diapers.

Da Elle told King 5 that it was “an emergency diaper run” for her, and when she picked up a package of diapers, she felt something on the outside.

“I felt what I thought was a coupon taped onto the plastic, turned over the package in my hand,” she said.

The “coupon” turned out to be a note from one parent.

The note read: “From one parent to another. Merry Christmas!”

Da Elle turned over the note to find $20 hidden underneath it!

The random act of kindness touched Da Elle.

“It moved me to tears,” she said.

When she told the store manager about her secret Santa, she was surprised by what he said.

“On my way out of the store, I told the manager what happened, and he said I was about the fifth person to tell him so,” she recounted.

Da Elle’s story, which was shared on King 5’s Facebook page, soon went viral, and some Facebook users shared the random act of kindness that they received.

“I worked there at that Safeway store a couple holidays back. Some customer randomly places $20 bills on products every year. When I was there a customer found one taped to a box of cheerios,” one wrote.

Another added: “I’ve had someone put a 20$ bill under the lid (the safety seal was not tampered with) of formula for me once! My son could only stomach the more expensive stuff after I quit breastfeeding at 6 months and it was around Christmas time too! Peoples [sic] generosity is amazing! It nice to give people blessings too!”

There are also others who praised the secret Santa.

She later emphasized in the Facebook comments that her story is “true,” and wrote that she had something to tell her secret Santa if he or she happened to see her message.

“I just want you to know it couldn’t have come at a better time. I was feeling overwhelmed and overlooked and you made me feel so special and I’ll always be so grateful for it,” she wrote.

What a nice gesture from whoever the person is!
