Everybody has something they want for Christmas, continuously hoping that one day their wish will come true. Cassie Gretschel has been making her brother’s dream come true for the last 17 years. Her brother has been asking for the same toy every year for Christmas, and she always makes sure that she fulfills her brother’s wish.
Every year her brother wishes for a specific Tonka Truck that’s been out of production for years. It’s called a Blue Police Hummer Truck, and he also wants it to have a metallic finish. Cassie doesn’t want to break her brother’s heart, so she turned to Reddit to ask for help.
She asked if anyone has the specific toy tucked away somewhere. She offered to buy the toys, but the people came to her aid free of charge. One person saw the truck for sale on eBay-France offering to ship the toy over to Cassie’s home. One Reddit user bought the item, while someone else volunteered to give the toy truck a metallic look.
Another Reddit user contacted Tonka on Twitter to see if they still have the trucks in storage. Tonka is searching their warehouse in the US and China in search of the particular toy. They assured everyone they’re doing their best to find and deliver the truck to Cassie’s brother, aside from this they also said that they’d send in a Tonka care package as well.
It looks like it’s going to be another special Christmas for Cassie and her brother. It goes to show how big people’s hearts are. Strangers from across the world are cooperating to fulfill one family’s special request. This just proves that there are no limits to human kindness. After this delightful event, one can surely feel the spirit of Christmas.
