Tonight, I wanted to share this photo from Lisa Aldrich, who went to get a birthday cake decorated at a Michigan Meijer. Once she picked up the birthday cake and was paying for it, other employees saw it and offered her a replacement. But, she soon learned who decorated the birthday cake, thanks to the store employees.
“To my surprise, after they discussed it, one cashier put her arm on my shoulder and said “the girl who wrote that has Autism. Thank you for smiling and thanking her – even though she’s not supposed to write on cakes, you probably made her day.”
Yep, a girl with autism decorated this birthday cake below. Thank you Meijer for not punishing the employee for doing something they were not supposed to do. What was Lisa’s moral of this story? “I guess the moral of the story is that kindness is important!” See, anyone with a disability can do something!
