SOMETIMES, SOMETHING HAPPENS on the internet and you think, maybe the world isn’t such a bad place after all.

This is one of those seldom times.

A Redditor in the States posted about a pink flamingo handbag that his girlfriend was obsessed with, but is only available to buy in Topshop in London.


The Skinnydip handbag, kenziespeights explained, was all his girlfriend wanted.

My girlfriend has been in a really rough place lately and being able to surprise her with something she thinks is absolutely impossible to get would put the biggest smile on her face.

Shortly after the post, an American in London said he was willing to help the man out, all for love of course.

He worked on Oxford Street and was planning to go home to the States in a few days, so began documenting every step of the way.

Some people have become quite attached.

What is wrong with me? I am actually sad to the little pink freak leaving.

What a guy.

The bag hasn’t reached its destination, but we’re sure this lucky girl will be cheered right up.
