This story is SO CUTE!!
I love when strangers come together to help out people in their community, and beyond. Nico is a 4-year-old boy from Ottawa, Canada. Recently, he and his mother and 2 siblings were taking a nature walk over a snowy canal and his little brother threw his stuffed reindeer, Rudolph, over the railing. Since they were unable to physically retrieve him, they made several trips to the canal to "see" him....but eventually he became covered in snow.
After several days, Nico's 6-year-old brother, Sebastian, recommended their mom reach out on Twitter to see if anyone could help. She told a local news outlet, "I didn't want to bother anyone. I didn't think anyone would care."
But, she reached out on Twitter anyways, writing, "If anyone happens to see a reindeer (I think it's a fawn actually) when the canal opens my kids would be grateful. Toddler brother threw it in. I know it's unlikely since they clear snow now and it will be even more buried but my 6-year-old asked me to post here."
Well.....ask and you shall RECEIVE!! A neighborhood "rescue" team was established and they DID find Rudolph. Check out the sweet reunion photos, below. This is so heartwarming!
