A little act of kindness can go a long way!


When Dave Gamble took his son, who has autism and is nonverbal, to a Coles supermarket in Victoria, Australia, he was blown away by an employee’s “amazingly generous gesture.” The dad shared the wonderful interaction on Facebook, and now their story is melting hearts around the world.

Facebook post reads: Hey Coles! Shout out to this amazing team member from this morning at your Cardinia Lakes store! When my non verbal, autistic son approached him, curious what he was doing with all the biscuits (my son LOVES biscuits), this guy stopped and showed him and they spent a happy five minutes or so putting the biscuits on the shelf together. And then, 10 minutes later, your team member found us again a few aisles over and gave him a box of chocolates for being such a great helper. 
For a boy who doesn't get to get out and socialise much due to all the lockdowns at the moment and when he does they can be challenging this was a little interaction and an amazingly generous gesture that made his day. Can you please ensure your team member gets recognised for being such an amazing human? Thanks! – with Caroline Taylor Gamble.

What a beautiful way to make this little boy’s day! We’re so glad to know there are Good Samaritans like Shane out there who are making the world a better, kinder place.
