No-one Showed Up For This Autistic Boys Birthday, And Then This Happened...

Photos: John Buratti Facebook

Glenn Buratti is a 6yo boy from Florida who has mild autism. His mum recently threw him a birthday party inviting all 16 kids in his class, but none of them showed up. So she turned to Facebook, posting in a community group:

"I know this might be something silly to rant about, but my heart is breaking for my son. We invited his whole class (16 kids) over for his 6th birthday party today. Not one kid came".

After posting to the group, local parents started turning up with their children, firefighters and police officers turned up with their fire engines and police vehicles, and little Glenn was given superstar treatment for his special day.

Glenn's dad, John, posted some of the events of the day to Facebook along with the caption, "feeling grateful :)".
