Two young girls in California set up a lemonade stand Sunday morning and took a quick break to go inside the house. When they returned, they found that someone had stolen $10 in cash, all of their lemons and a giant stuffed giraffe.
One of the girls' mother called the police to report the theft and word quickly got out to the rest of the community, which jumped into action.
The police department chipped in to donate $50 to the girls. A local toy store donated a giant stuffed alligator. Whole Foods contributed a crate of lemons and other pitched in with money.
The police department said in a statement, "We would like to thank all who donated. We know the girls were very happy and thankful for the donations." (San Francisco Chronicle)
