A teenager's act of kindness in a Target is warming hearts online

When Megan Shufflebarger brought her two-year-old daughter Kinley to an Indiana Target on October 22, she knew that Kinley would be excited about picking a doll for her birthday. But she didn’t expect the kindness of a teenage stranger, who ended up buying her daughter the gift.

In a Facebook post, Shufflebarger writes how Kinley walked down the aisles, pointing out dolls that she liked. A young couple overheard and asked which was her favorite. She pointed to a specific one, and the guy took it, told her to stay there, and disappeared. When he returned, he handed her a bag with the purchased doll in it, and wished her a happy birthday.

Shufflebarger posted a photo of Kinley standing with her brother and the teenager, who has been identified as Tario Fuller II, a freshman at Purdue University.

Shufflebarger’s post has been shared over 63,000 times.

My heart is about to explode. We were in target tonight and this younger couple was walking thru the toy aisles...
