People from all over the world are stepping up to help a little girl from St. George, Utah with autism.
The girl had been attached to her favorite shirt since kindergarten.
Years later it became ripped and worn out. And Target stopped selling the shirt.
Her mother, Deborah Skousen, asked her friends on Facebook to see if anyone had the same shirt or something similar.
Then her post went viral.
"So far, we have about 12 [shirts] that have arrived at our house. We probably have about 140 more that are on their way," said Deborah.
Deborah also got a call from Target employees. They tracked down the fabric and are making shirts in different sizes so that her daughter can wear them into adulthood.
