The reason this little girl gave her ice cream money to her teacher will warm your heart

A LITTLE girl is receiving praise from people all over the world after her teacher shared a heartwarming story about her kind gesture.

Price Lawrence, a teacher in Huntsville, Alabama, took to Facebook last week to explain why a child’s 75 cent ice-cream money almost brought him to tears.

“This morning, during first period, my kids could tell that I was a little off,” Mr Lawrence wrote in the post.


“When they asked why I wasn’t acting normal I explained to them that my wife’s father had passed away this weekend and that I was worried about her.

“They all said they were sorry and then we got started on our work.

“While standing at my door giving hugs and high fives at dismissal to 2nd period one little girl put something in my hand.”

Mr Lawrence explained that the little girl had handed him a note that read: “Ms Lawrence, I’m sorry” with a sad face, as well as 75 cents.

“She told me ‘This is for your wife. I know it was real expensive when my daddy died and I don’t really want ice cream today anyways.'”

Mr Lawrence finishing the touching post by explaining “I wish the world would pay more attention to children. We could learn a lot from them.”

The story has since gone viral on social media with more than 277,000 shares and thousands of comments.
