(3TV/CBS 5) - In tonight's "Something Good" segment, we meet a young girl in Virginia who felt the love of her whole community, after strangers came together to replace her stolen bike.

Ten-year-old Aaliyah rides her bike every day after school. She usually brings it inside, but last week she accidentally left it on her front porch. When she woke up, it was gone.  

Her mom posted the incident on Facebook, asking anyone if they had seen the bike. That's when people from all over started sharing the post. 

A month later, Aaliyah's family woke up to find a brand new bike on their front porch. "I looked outside and there was a bike," said the girl's mom, Kena. "There was a note that said, 'To the young lady whose bike was stolen, we're sorry that it happened. Here's another one for you.'"

"Thank you so much!" said Aaliyah. "That was really thoughtful of you. I'm really excited to ride this new bike; thank you." 

Family members say they have no idea who put the bike on the porch. The stranger also left Aaliyah a brand new helmet, and a bike lock to make sure it doesn't happen again.
