Autistic kid invites 16 friends to his birthday party. Nobody came. What happens next will bring you to tears

Glenn Buratti’s mum threw a birthday party for her 6-year-old, inviting all 16 of his classmates to attend. When not a single one bothered to show both Glenn and his mum were heartbroken. 

She vented her frustration with a post on Facebook.


The response of the good people of Osceola, Florida, was quite incredible. Tons of locals got in touch asking of they could stop by and wish Glenn a happy birthday, with many also bringing along a gift for him. One woman even brought him a brand new bike!


The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office sent the force helicopter to fly over the party, while officers all contributed some of their money to buy gifts for Glenn.

A few days later, the town’s fire department stopped by to pay Glenn a visit, wishing him a belated happy birthday and letting him climb up on the fire truck.


Mrs Buratti told WKMG ‘The amazingness of everybody coming together for someone that they didn’t even know, a kid that didn’t have anybody come to his birthday party – it warmed my heart,’
