Mother emails a Vacuum Company with an unusual request.

Since Dylan Green was 2 years old, he has had a passion for vacuum cleaners. Dylan, who has autism, has never been into "normal" toys.

Wanting to do something special for his birthday, Dylan's mother sent an email to the Kirby Vacuum Company,

‘I do not want anything free, but as the mother of a special needs child, it is so hard to find things to make my son happy. I know that having a vacuum demo done at his birthday would just be so awesome, and it would warm my heart to see him so excited to experience that."

The company received the email and sent salesman Al Archie to perform a vacuum demonstration at the party. Archie could not believe how much Dylan knew about the vacuum.

At the end of the demo, Archie gave Dylan a brand new Kirby vacuum. Dylan's mother said, "there wasn't a dry eye in the house."
