A text featuring a stunning woman in a dress was accidentally sent to the wrong person, and the response has gone viral. And for a great cause. The wife of the man on the receiving end of the text was gone tending to their child with leukemia, whose GoFundMe account is now receiving a plethora of new donations.
Tony Wood, a father of six from Sedalia, Missouri, according to MSN, received a text from an unknown number showcasing a woman in an evening gown.
Rather than ignore the text or tell the sender “wrong number,” Wood decided to get creative.
“I believe this message was intended for someone else,” he wrote. “My wife isn’t home, so I couldn’t get her opinion, but the kids and I think you look stunning in your dress! You should definitely go with that one!” He followed the message with a photo of his children giving a thumbs-up response.
@bbymandi created a tweet using screenshots from the ordeal, as seen above, and at the time of publishing it had over 700,000 likes and more than 176,000 retweets.
“Syd accidentally sent pics of her dress to the wrong number and this was their response 😂,” Mandi Miller captioned the tweet.
The heartbreaking reason of why Wood wasn’t home to help with the family’s decision regarding the dress was because she was tending to their four-year-old son, Kaizler, who is battling leukemia.
In a beautiful sequence of events, word got out regarding the boy’s GoFundMe page, which has now surpassed $47,000 of a $5,000 goal.
