St. Cloud, Florida – Glenn Buratti is an autistic child who was looking forward to his 6th birthday party. All 16 of his classmates were invited and he could hardly wait.

“From the minute he woke up that day he wanted to know how many minutes until his friends came. None of the kids’ parents RSVP’d, but I was still holding on to the hope that some of them would show up. It never crossed my mind that it would be zero,” Ashlee Buratti  

That’s right, no one showed up. But when Ashlee turned to Facebook to vent on the 10,000 member  Osceola community page something magical happened: the members began to respond in an overwhelming show of support.
