Girls Use Pocket Money From Tooth Fairy To Hand Deliver Toilet Paper To Pensioners
As the toilet paper panic continues, two girls in Australia have shown us what you should actually do in a time like this.
Addyson, six, with her friend Lucy, four, were seen carting around a trolley in their Queensland neighbourhood that was stacked with tissues and toilet paper.
Their mission: deliver as much stuff as they could to pensioners in Mareeba who might not be able to get out of the house that often.
If you've managed to miss the absolute debacle that's unfolded across Australia, then count your lucky stars.
Some people have had the misguided assumption that toilet paper will be in short supply because of the coronavirus and, as a result, they have been buying up as much as they can.
Supermarket shelves have been stripped of products, despite authorities ranging from the government, health department, suppliers and supermarkets all pleading with people to stop panic buying toilet paper.
But Petrina McGuire couldn't be prouder or Addyson and Lucy for showing some calm and delivering some much needed supplies to people.
The Queensland mum told the Daily Mail that the idea was her daughter's, which came when they saw an empty toilet paper aisle at their local Coles.
Petrina said: "Addyson asked if she could buy some [toilet paper] to hand out to those that may have missed out using money she had saved from the tooth fairy.
"The pensioners loved having them knock on the door and ask if they would like some as the shops run out - some people needed some and were very grateful."

The mum uploaded a snap of the girls walking around the neighbourhood to Facebook and it's since gone viral, with thousands of people liking, sharing and commenting on it.
Many have praised the girls for showing some common sense during what is largely being regarded as a total unnecessary panic.
To encapsulate just how bonkers this crisis has been, check out the brawl that happened at a Woolworths in Chullora, west Sydney.
In a clip filmed by an onlooker, which has been posted on Twitter, the three women can be heard screaming and shouting at each other before a staff member gets involved.
It appears as though one woman took a packet of toilet rolls from the other two women, prompting a fight to break out.
One woman can be heard saying: "I just want one pack."
However, the second woman, who appears to have a full trolley of toilet rolls, responded: "No, not one pack."
A spokesperson from Woolworths told 7 News: "We can confirm an incident involving customers at our Chullora store in Sydney earlier today.
"We will not tolerate violence of any kind from our customers in our stores and we are working with police who are investigating the matter."
Police in the area confirmed to 7 News they had been called out to the store following reports of a 49-year-old woman being assaulted, but said no arrests had been made.
