When Jaiden Cowley posted a question on the Mom Squad Facebook page, she didn’t expect the response she got. The mom was in Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children with her 18-month-old daughter Amira and was in desperate need of—a coffee.
Cowley’s daughter is waiting for a heart transplant and the mama spends plenty of time at Sick Kids. When she posted, “Is anyone at sickkids right now? I have a huge havor to ask. I’m in the er and I can’t leave my daughter alone, but I really need a coffee,” she thought someone else in the hospital might read her words and help. But instead, she got a sweet surprise!
Half an hour after Cowley posted on Facebook a woman named Elizabeth showed up in the ER with a Starbucks Venti iced coffee. Cowley told TODAY, “I never expected someone to get in their car and drive to me.” She also added, “As Elizabeth was leaving, she said, ‘I’m so glad I could do this for you and let me know if you need anything else.'”
Elizabeth wasn’t the only mama who rushed to help. Another generous Mom Squad-er asked for Cowley’s email, sending her $50 to buy coffee. Cowley said of this kind act, “It was such a nice gesture that I started crying.”
