Strangers rush to save little boys birthday celebrations.
Rachelle Briannan, from Melbourne, logged on to her Facebook mother’s group Midnight Mums and messaged them in tears, explaining she had invited 12 children to her son Taenon’s fourth birthday celebration at a local restaurant… and all of their parents had either cancelled or never responded.
Her message touched their hearts and within minutes, 25 mums and dads from across Melbourne gathered their children and drove to a McDonald’s restaurant to help the little boy celebrate his birthday.
‘So I’m sitting in my room quietly crying. 12 kids were invited to my sons party today, and an hour before every one of them cancels or just doesn’t reply to my msgs [sic],’ Ms Briannan wrote on Facebook.
‘My son just turned 4 and this is the first time he’s really understood the whole party with friends thing. My heart is literally broken for him!! I’m so hurt and angry [sic].
‘What the hell can I do to make this up to him? Seriously. Like I made him this huge superhero cake and there’s going to be no one to even sing happy birthday to him.’
Veronica’s Pantry from Diamond Creek donated a bunch of number 4 helium balloons and the local Nillumbik SES turned up and invited the children to explore their trucks.
The Midnight Mums community rallied together online with hundreds of birthday wishes for Taenon flooding our newsfeeds and touching the hearts of our members with this feel good story right across Australia and beyond #midnightmums #thepowerofsocialmedia #happybirthdaytaenon #mumssupportingmums
Blogger Constance Hall was equally impressed posting on her own page.
