Dollar Tree Kid | How a Little Change Goes a Long Way | by Alicia Spain | Inspiring Story #126

A young boy shows up at Dollar Tree wanting to buy a few gifts for his mother.  Only he was short on money...

A 30-second story to remind you that small gestures make a big difference


I work at the Dollar Tree.  Yesterday a young kid came in to buy his mother birthday presents.

This kid had picked out several little gifts for his mother, including flowers, a princess balloon, and candy.  When it came time to check-out, he was short on money.   

As I got ready to cover the boy’s gift, the lady behind him said,

“No, I got this.”   She proceeded to cover the rest of his purchase.

Today's a good day.  

A reminder of how a little change can go a long way in making someone's day!

  • Short but sweet. I still believe in kindness of human beings.

  • This is so sweet paying it forward never goes out of style and neither does kindness. The world would do well to remind those things all the time.
