A Birthday Party For A Girl With Autism Was Saved After Strangers Showed Up To Be Her Party Guests

A little girl in Wales almost had a very sad birthday, until some very thoughtful neighbors stepped in to save the day. When only two of her birthday party guests showed up, the girl’s father opened up an invitation to the entire community. And the community made sure the party was a success.

Strangers showed up to the birthday party for a girl with Autism to make sure that she had friends to help her celebrate.

Remi invited 10 children to her 5th birthday party. But, when the big day came, only one other child showed up.

Remi was upset and she asked her parents where her friends were. That’s when her dad, PJ Robins, decided to take matters into his own hands. He posted in a Facebook group for his community of Abertillery in Wales, saying that he hoped some more people in town could help make Remi’s birthday special.

PJ explained the situation and wrote: “My daughter is autistic but she is a lovely little girl and this is going to literally devastate her if nobody shows up! Please, if anybody has some free time and has a child around my daughter’s age – would you be willing to help us make her party a day to remember?”

Luckily, the people of Abertillery heard his plea and came out to help Remi in a big way.

Within minutes of posting on Facebook, PJ started receiving messages and strangers arrived at the play center where the birthday party was being held.

About 14 children and parents arrived to join Remi at her party, while another dozen or so dropped off cards and gifts for her. “The kindness of the community – people we had never met – was absolutely mind-blowing,” said PJ, according to BBC News.

Since the party, PJ has received messages from other parents of children with autism who want to connect their children with Remi.

Remi enjoyed her party and enjoyed celebrating with all her new friends. PJ said, “The beautiful smile on her face when her cake came out made it all worthwhile.”
