What a way to pull up a surprise!
Bailey Bealefeld, an expecting mother, recently realized that apart from her very best friend of 10 learned, no other single person was planning to come to her baby shower. When this realization dawned on her, she wasn’t really expecting much more. However, another thing that she didn’t know was that she was in for the surprise of her life.
According to My Fox Atlanta, Bailey’s best friend took affirmative action on the 9th of July, after she saw that the Walmart online registry that they had set up for the baby shower had not made a single sale yet. She decided to take matters into her own hands, and she hired a few users on Reddit to help ensure that the baby showed would end up as a day that her pregnant best friend would never forget.
The father-in-law of Bailey’s best friend posted on the Random Kindness section of Reddit on her behalf, “A woman who has been my best friend for the past 10 years is pregnant with a baby girl, and we have organized a bay sowed for her. The shower will hold this weekend. It just came to y realization that no one else is planning to attend the baby shower apart from me”
The post continued, “I went to check her registry on Walmart today and so far, there has been no item purchased from there as well. She is clearly upset that not a single person RSVP’d for her baby shower and since I am the only person who will be attending, I was hoping that the good people on Reddit would be able to cheer her up”
The items available on Baily’s registry had items ranging from 97 cents to $27, although there was a longer wish list that was added by the family on Amazon, with the hopes that users on edit would also be able to add their contributions.
The post read, “I know for a fact that a few random acts of kindness would really help make her day on Sunday”
godloki, the user on Reddit who posted the call for help, woke up on the morning of Bailey’s shower to find his driveway filled with packages, and he was overwhelmed with the amount of support that he got from Reddit users.
godloki wrote as an update, “It was really a beautiful day when we arrived and of course, all of us was excited at just how surprised Bailey was going to be. We really appreciate all the kindness that was shown by these people as we are trying to make Bailey- and her baby shower- really special”
At the end of the day, there were about 10 people who attended the baby shower thrown in honor of Bailey and the child she was expecting.
Bailey and her mother were completely shocked when her best friend and her family pulled up to their house with a car filled with gifts.
The post added, “With ever bag of gifts and box of diapers that were opened, Bailey would bounce up and down. She was half smiling and half crying”
In utter disbelief, Bailey said, “I honesty have never felt so good in my entire life. I know now that my baby is going to be taken care of pretty well’
