The kindness of strangers will always make us smile.

An Okotoks family answered a call for an unlikely item from an uncommon place. 

Former Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi put out a message on social media requesting information about a children's toy.

Cue an Okotoks family who stepped up to the challenge and dropped off an identical toy less than a day later. 

Nenshi took to Twitter to thank the local family.
