A single mom in Oklahoma, named Tiffany Holloway, wanted to buy a manta ray stuffed animal, because her son asked for one for his fifth birthday. But she only had $2 in her bank account. So she grabbed a needle and thread and made one out of his old baby blanket, with buttons for eyes. And she did a great job with it. (Here’s a photo.)
She was so proud, she posted a photo on Reddit that got 66,000 likes in a single day.
Then people asked if they could send her son MORE gifts. And he’s now gotten over 150 stuffed manta rays in the mail.
But he says the one his mom made is his favorite.
(There’s also a GoFundMe that’s raised thousands of dollars to help them out.)
