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.
