She didn't have to, but she did. And it made this little boy's day.

Bonnie Kandel's 7-year-old son Leif has autism. She says that he can be a really picky eater, and has a hard time letting go of things. One of Leif's friends had told him about a toy he had gotten out of a Happy Meal, and Leif was dead-set on getting it. By the time Bonnie had made it to their local McDonald's, they were out of said toy.

She was worried - he had been talking about this toy for weeks. So the cashier asked management if she could get the toy out of the display box. She said that Leif played with toys for hours. Bonnie posted:

Thank you, TQ, at the 10th and Girls School Road McDonalds in Speedway, IN. These simple happy meal toys mean so much! Your effort was an expression of love and made a difference.
