Every weekday Shawn Patrick sheds some light on some good news with His Good Vibes Story. Here is today's...

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.)
