If you have any experience with children (or adults) who have autism, you know that breaking routine can be a pretty traumatic experience. Those with autism spectrum disorders tend to be comforted by rules, consistency, and expectations that are set and then met. This can mean anything from rigidly following board game rules to eating the same dinner on a set day of the week.

Breaking routine, as parents of children with autism will tell you, is rarely worth whatever convenience or novelty it affords. One friend of a mother whose daughter has autism reached out to strangers to help keep some of that comforting consistency in their lives, and they were all floored by the response.

The other day, a woman named Deborah Price took to Twitter to help her friend Kate whose daughter has autism. As Price explained, Kate’s daughter Elsie, like many children and adults with autism, is more comfortable following a consistent routine. For Elsie, this routine includes a very specific (and very fashionable) dress with a broken rainbow heart.

The dress was manufactured by UK clothing line Next, but the company has discontinued the line, leading Price to reach out into the void of the internet for help.

Price’s tweet attracted TONS of offers from people. Some searched eBay for the dress…

Others volunteered to recreate it…

Price even got the attention of the original manufacturer, Next.

As luck would have it, some very caring people actually had an original of Elsie’s favorite look, and they were willing to part with it to help the family out.

Price was thrilled with the response to her plea for help, and it restored her faith in social media as a force for good. In a Twitter thread, she thanked everyone who took time to aid her search.

Price said she had located kind people with the same exact dress in a variety of sizes, including one sized for a teenager in case Elsie doesn’t outgrow her attachment to this style in the near future.

But most importantly, a young girl volunteered her own "broken heart" dress in the *perfect* size for Elsie to wear right now!

Price concluded her thread by thanking all of the moms and daughters who selflessly helped out a stranger, just because another stranger asked them to:

And Elsie and her mom posted a heartfelt thank you to everyone who chipped in to get Elsie her favorite dress back on Facebook:

“Elsie would like to say a massive massive thank you for all of the help in sourcing more of her beloved ‘Broken Heart Dresses,’” her mom Kate wrote.

It’s a small gesture, but a meaningful one to a little girl and her mother. It’s also a great reminder that when everyone does their small part it can make a big difference to someone in need.
