Nobody wants to celebrate a birthday alone, especially not little kids. But Danny Hallock from Ashland, New Hampshire hasn’t had much luck getting other kids to show up to her birthday parties in the past. She has autism and has had a hard time making friends, even though she really wants to.
Danny’s mom, Sarah, wants to throw her daughter a 10th birthday party, but even after sending notes to parents explaining Danny’s autism, the kids haven’t come to her parties. So family friend Lauren Sherburne created a Facebook group called #CardsForDanny, which is asking people to send the little girl birthday wishes and let her know they care.
“Children are not accepting of her disabilities and she shouldn't be defined by her autism,” Shelburne says. “What I want for her is to feel loved. And to feel like somebody cares for her other than her family.”
