“If there is anyone who deserves a great birthday, this is the girl.”

It’s a gut wrenching photo. Last year, Hallee Sorenson from Bangor, Maine invited all her friends and classmates to celebrate her birthday with bowling and ice cream cake. She waited and waited but not a single person showed up. Her mother snapped this picture of the heartbreaking day while she was “behind a pillar crying and sent the picture to my husband asking him what I should do. I didn’t know what I should tell her”.

Determined for the incident to not happen again, her cousin, Rebecca Lyn, shared the photo on social media and asked for a special favor from all of us.

“People think that kids like Halle don’t want to be included, they don’t want to be invited places or have a party, but that’s not true”

What's the special favor?
