When a little girl noticed her neighbor had a basketball hoop in their driveway, she really wanted to put it to use, so she left a polite note at the door asking if she could. The person responded in the most neighborly way, and it’s warming our hearts.

In her letter, the girl, named Emma, shared that she’d tried to ask permission in person on a few occasions, but she missed them each time. So she took the most wholesome second approach and left a classic “check yes or no” card.

Little Girl’s Note to Neighbor Earned a Short and Sweet Reply

“Dear neighbor,” she wrote in the note on a plain white card. “My name is Emma and I live across the street at 1659. Would it be ok if I shot some hoops on your b-ball hoop after school some days?”

The neighbor gladly gave her free rein of the hoop, and after checking “yes,” he told Emma to “Have Fun!”

The sweet exchange may seem simple, but it’s proof that small gestures have big meanings. Be sure to share this story to remind people that kindness does exist.
