Recently, one woman has been overwhelmed by the benevolence and kindness of strangers after hundreds responded to her request to find one specific dress. Deborah Price posted the request on Twitter and explained that her friend “has a daughter with autism who can only wear that dress.” She also asked people not to be judgy because “sometimes people can’t cope with certain stuff [and] it doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things.” We couldn’t agree more.

The girl’s name is Elsie and apparently, she’s super attached to the dress. Deborah, a friend of Elsie’s mom, took her quest for the dress to Twitter in the hopes of possibly buying it off someone. What she probably didn’t expect was the overwhelming amount of responses from numerous kind people who offered their help in any way they could.

“Friend’s autistic daughter only wears this dress. Don’t judge. Sometimes people can’t cope with certain stuff & it doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things does it? Question is has anyone got this [Next] dress from 3 [years] ago in age 11 plus & if so can we buy them off you?” Deborah wrote in the post. Minutes after posting the request, people started retweeting and sharing the links of the dress on eBay, while some even offered to make the dress themselves. Fashion retailer Next also responded to the request by saying that they no longer carry the item but they’ll be contacting the supplier to find out whether it can produce a few more batches of the dress.

The next day, Deborah tweeted an update on the story. She thanked the retailer Next for reaching out to their supplier to see if they could make additional batches of the dress. She also thanked people that were sending the dresses they had, even though they weren’t exactly the size she needed. Nevertheless, it was a touching gesture.

“You’ve made a little girl really happy to continue to be in her favorite dress”

Elsie’s mom took to Facebook to thank all the kind strangers that helped put a smile on her daughter’s face. “Elsie would like to say a massive, massive thank you for all of the help in sourcing more of her beloved ‘Broken Heart Dresses’,” she wrote in a post.
