ST. CLOUD, Florida – Glenn Buratti was turning 6 and decided to invite all of his classmates to his party. But his mother Ashlee said that when his party day arrived, not one kid showed up.

“To see the look on his face killed me inside,” Ashlee told WKMG.

Ashlee said her son was so upset that he wouldn’t even smile.

Turning to Facebook to vent, Ashlee wrote about how badly she felt for her son. Then almost immediately, strangers responded and began to come to the party with gifts.

The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office also saw her post, sending a flyover from the department helicopter.

“The amazingness of everybody coming together for someone that they didn’t even know,” Ashlee told WKMG. “A kid that didn’t have anybody come to his birthday party. It warmed my heart.”
