No one shows up for 6-year-old’s birthday party – then mom shares picture and the community steps up

What was supposed to be the best day of his life turned into a devastating experience for one boy named Teddy. He was turning 6 years old and his parents offered him to take him to Disney World or Lego Land, but he chose to celebrate it with his friends instead.

His mother booked a table at Peter Piper Pizza and gave Teddy’s teacher 32 invitations to hand them to every child from the class some two weeks before the big day. More than half of the children’s parents said they would take the kids to the party.

On the day of Teddy’s birthday, mom Sia prepared goodie bags for her son’s friends and ordered a bunch of pizzas. Everyone was looking forward to have a great time, but none of the classmates showed up. The family waited for more than hour, but the friends were nowhere to be seen.

Sia was left heartbroken. She was feeling devastated for her son who was very sad on the day that was supposed to be a fun one.

“I was bummed, I was bummed out for sure,” Teddy’s dad told the New York Post. “Teddy, the biggest thing for him was having his classmates there, so not seeing them show up an hour into the party was disappointing.” In order to cheer their son up, the parents tried to distract him with games such as arcade.

Sia decided to take a photo of Teddy which she shared online in order to remind everyone that things like this should never happen to anyone. She, however, didn’t expect for the photo of sad Teddy to go viral and attract that much attention. She even regretted sharing it when she realized the amount of exposure it received.

Hundreds of people posted messages wishing Teddy a happy birthday and many even sent presents. Among those who wanted to get involved in making Teddy’s day a bit better were the Phoenix Suns and the Phoenix Rising MLS team who invited the family to their upcoming games.

Out of all the parents who didn’t bring their children to the party, only one called Sia to apologize.
