I just had to enter this. One reason because I wanted to share and spread how one little act of kindness can make such a huge difference in the world 🌍. @nickeyearsco
has decided to do something so selfless and to give - something that isn’t happening at all with this #mickeymousememories
collection. From after the launch of the first release it seems to all be about greed and gain/taking what isn’t rightfully yours. I don’t know about anyone else but it has made me upset at times, and I say that lightly because I am spending money to collect these and what’s good about spending money if you have to suffer for it and it leaves you feeling empty. When I heard about this collection I was so excited, so invested, I would count down the days till the 18th then on the 19th be ready for the next countdown. But today was different, today I went online from 5am but that’s because I suffer with anxiety and something made me have to refresh from then all the way up to 8am where at this time I was logged in, checkout ready for the payment to be blocked at 8:02am because of out of stock products in my basket. From those hours of building up to this moment I just remember falling on the floor and tears streaming out of nowhere like as if my world was falling apart and in that moment it was so hard to realise it was just a teddy at the end of the day. But at the time I couldn’t comprehend that and my parents couldn’t bare to see me in the state I was knowing it is more or less impossible for me to venture to well known crowded places but what other choice would we have. We ended up queuing up for 2.5 hours with so many people behind and so many people not even bothering to acknowledge the respectful queue many were sticking to. Those 2 and a half hours felt like a lifetime, especially in contrast to the minutes that the 48 plush were snatched and flung at my local store. It wasn’t nice one bit, it wasn’t fun or exciting or a magical experience like I’ve always prided my @disneystoreuk
purchases with. I had people hassling me to sell mine to them before I even had got it to the till. I watched people argue, lash out, intimidate, cry and act in such inappropriate manners...
