Girl with no RSVPs to birthday party gets 300 surprise guests

Thanks to one Facebook post, Mackenzie Moretter will definitely have a happy birthday. But just a few hours ago, the 10-year-old from Shakopee, Minnesota hadn't received a single RSVP to her party this Saturday.

Her heartbroken mother, Jenny, turned to Facebook with a plea.

The Facebook post

"Hello moms. I'm writing because I have a beautiful daughter named Mackenzie who is turning 10. I recently invited several girls to her birthday party this Saturday. I got cancellations or no calls at all saying whether they're coming or not. My daughter has Sotos Syndrome which means she has development delays such as speech and learning. At school she struggles and is often alone on the playground. As a mother, it is heartbreaking being you want your children to be happy. I'm reaching out to moms who have daughters between the age of 9-11 that would love to come to a birthday party tomorrow from 11-1:30. You don't have to bring gifts or stay long, just stop by and wish her a happy birthday. As of now, I have two girls coming which is family. She would be so surprised to have other girls just show up. If you are interested please send me a pm and I'll give you my address. Thank you all for reading a mother's wish!"
