Bosses at a Cambridge, [UK] department store are searching for a 5-year-old girl who sent them money in the post after breaking a Christmas bauble.
The youngster – known only as Faith – accidentally knocked the fragile decoration to the ground at John Lewis in St Andrew’s Street on Saturday.
She felt so guilty about it that she penned a letter of apology with two pound coins stuck to it with sellotape.
In it, she wrote: “I’m sorry I broke a Christmas bauble on Saturday. It cost two pounds. Here is the money for it. Sorry again.”
She signed the letter, “Faith. Aged 5.”
Dominic Joyce, head of John Lewis Cambridge, took to Twitter in a bid to thank the little girl.
He tweeted: “@johnlewisretail the cutest letter sent to JL Cambridge. There is no address so we wanted to thank Faith on Twitter!”
It has led to Twitter using the phrase ‘#FindFaith’ in the hope of getting the message to the girl and her family.
A recent interview with Archbishop Konrad Krajewski, the “Almoner of His Holiness,” raised speculation that the Pope joins him on his nightly trips into Rome to give alms to the poor, and it turns out that the rumors are probably true.
A knowledgable source in Rome told The Huffington Post that “Swiss guards confirmed that the pope has ventured out at night, dressed as a regular priest, to meet with homeless men and women.”
Krajewski earlier said, “When I say to him ‘I’m going out into the city this evening’, there’s the constant risk that he will come with me,” and he merely smiled and ducked the question when reporters asked him point-blank whether the Pope accompanied him into the city.

In just a few hours on Saturday, a west suburban man gave away almost everything he owned.
Brian Bagnall, 32, of Franklin Park, who authored a book on happiness, gave away everything in his home aside from a few personal items as he prepared for a move to a furnished home in Virginia.
Instead of selling his belongings, Bagnall reportedly posted on Craigslist that he was giving away his things for free.
“After seeing the many videos of people acting crazy on Black Friday, we wanted to encourage some human kindness,” the Craigslist ad read. “We thought about selling it, but that just wouldn’t be in the holiday spirit.”
But the sale didn’t come without a few rules.
Bagnall asked that no one push, shove, run, yell or do any other mean acts during the giveaway.
“This isn’t Walmart,” the ad said.
Roughly 200 people showed up Saturday morning to clean out his three-bedroom home in the 3200 block of Dora Street, and within a few hours, the place was empty.
“People were waiting all over the lawn and cars were lining up and down the street,” Bagnall said. “There were 40 or 50 people on the front lawn when it first opened.”
Bagnall said the sale was part of his and his girlfriend’s plan to live the life he preaches.
He said the two try to do little things each day to spread happiness, like buying a coffee for the person in line behind them when they go out.
Bagnall gave away everything from couches and love seats to tools and ladders. He said people were even taking shelves off the walls.
“There were a lot of smiles today,” he said. “People need happiness more than ever right now and Black Friday shows it.”
“Hey guys, this happened in Vancouver, Canada. Here is the source, and an interview with the guy. I see this guy all the time in my neighbourhood.
“even though I’m in a chair, doesn’t mean I can’t stand up for whats right.”
He’s a cool dude.

I cannot thank the people who helped me enough. Considering some people just drove past me laying on the floor. Had a rapid response unit check me over and I saw another bike nearly lowside aswell.
The paramedic said this roundabout always had diesel on it as there is a big petrol station down the road. Then had to do a 40 minute ride home after the crash. My local dealership fixed my forks and brakes for free.”
