A loving father determined to help his 3-year-old daughter enjoy Halloween even though they were on a Boston-to-San Francisco flight is earning widespread praise on social media.

Stephanie Kahan told The Boston Globe via email that she was on the flight with the man and his little girl on Monday when he passed out notes and candy to passengers.

The note explained that Molly, dressed as a doughnut, was "bummed that she wouldn't be able to go trick-or-treating" and asked for help from fellow passengers.

The girl then walked up and down the aisle collecting the candy.

Kahan called it a "heart-warming moment" and every other passenger was excited to participate.

Kahan said the father wanted to remain anonymous. Her tweet had been shared nearly 70,000 times Tuesday morning.
