A group of NSW mums have created a group to help parents find party guests.
Co-founder of the Facebook group Kids Party Rescue, Tahlee Masri said hundreds of worried parents have used her page.
“We saw a story online where a mum was upset because no one had turned up to her child’s birthday party and we thought, ‘You know what? There should be a Facebook page where you can invite other children to your kids’ party,’ ” Ms Masri said.
“(Often a) child might be on the spectrum and it is hard for them to make friends in the classroom. Sometimes there’s no family around or the mum is too busy and they don’t have time to make friends. I have a big family and we have big parties with 100-plus people, so it doesn’t bother me to invite someone who doesn’t get invited to parties into my home.”
“This group was created for the party Mums who feel like they need rescuing with extra attendees, after all the hard work of planning, organising and preparing a party for their child and have had no luck with the RSVPs…
“Please provide only SOME details of your party in the post i.e. Suburb Location/Date ONLY and Mums with their child/children interested in further details or information about your party can contact you directly and it is up to the party Mum whether she approves you to come to her party or not. This is just a way to protect the Mum and her party…

This group is really about making the child’s memories of their party AWESOME!”
What a great concept. Well done mums!
