Moms band together after nobody shows up to 4-year-old's birthday party
January 11, 2017
An Australian mom took to Facebook to vent about how all 12 kids dropped out of her son's birthday party last minute, and to her surprise a community swooped in to support her. Rachelle Briannan posted her tearful frustrations on the Facebook group 'Midnight Mums' in Melbourne, saying her heart was broken for her now 4-year-old son who would have no friends to sing 'happy birthday' to him.
The Daily Mail reports the Facebook support group soon turned into a real community for Briannan and her son Taenon. The post touched the hearts of thousands, and within just 30 minutes, 25 parents from across the city had gathered at a local McDonald's to celebrate the 4-year-old's birthday.
Taenon got the chance to celebrate his big day with 30 brand new friends. Plus, others in the Melbourne community also wanted to pitch in: Daily Mail reports a local party store donated 'number 4 helium balloons' and the State Emergency Service drove over so the kids could explore the trucks.
