She was awed by the love and support the community extended and thanked them in helping to get her daughter a new dress.Next Official, the company responsible for manufacturing the dress, also tweeted out their support and offered to contact their suppliers in a bid to try and produce the same dress.People from the community applauded her for this initiative. Few parents even spoke about their personal experience with parenting kids suffering from autism.Not long after, Price tweeted “Stop the Clock” as “A girl called Mila found her age 12 dress which will be perfect." She went on to explain that Mila had urged her mom to send her dress to little Elise.This heart warming story reminds us the power of social media and how small acts of kindness and generosity can create multiple ripples!
