Knowing the amount of significance children place on birthday parties is why Lex Fitzgerald was crushed.

Lex had organized a birthday party for her 5-year-old daughter. Invitations were sent, a table was decorated and the 5-year-old birthday girl was in her finest clothes. Everything was ready. However, no one showed up for the little girl’s birthday party. The no-shows came even after several of the child's classmates had RSVP'd yes.

"She was just sitting there," Lex said. "My heart broke. She was sitting there waiting for her friends to arrive. And I just, I didn't know what to do."

Lex was devastated by the lack of turnout for her daughter's party. But then Lex came up with an idea. She went to social media and posted, reaching out to the community.

The mother of the devastated child wrote how no one showed up for the child's party, explaining that if they weren't busy, they were welcome to attend.

Then, just minutes later, people began arriving at the party.

"And when I tell you that within 15 minutes of making that post, people started to arrive," Lex said. "Families started to arrive for her birthday party. It was the most incredible show of neighborly love and community."

But those guests did not come to the little girl’s birthday party empty-handed either. They made sure to bring presents for the birthday girl.
