It was her autistic son’s birthday party, but nobody showed up. So this mom posted an emotional message on her Facebook account. Surprisingly, after an hour, strangers gathered around and saved the day.

Last weekend, Glenn Buratti asked all 16 of his classmates at an elementary school in Florida to attend his sixth birthday party. However, Ashlee Buratti, Glenn’s mother, confirmed that not a single person came.

Ashlee said, “He was so devastated when he realized no one was coming to his birthday party that he refused to smile. He tried to hide the fact that he was crying by pinching the bridge of his nose. He keeps asking, ‘When will my friends get here?'”
