Nobody Showed Up To This Little Boy’s Birthday—And The Internet Stepped Up With Some Awesome Gifts ❤️

One of almost everyone’s greatest fears growing up, and perhaps into adulthood, is throwing a party and having no one show up. Usually, there are some no shows. But rarely does the outsize fear that no one is going to show up actually manifest. Unfortunately, this was not the case for Teddy Mazzini, a young boy who was supposed to have a pizza party for his birthday at the local Peter Piper Pizza in Tucson, Arizona.

His mother shared this photo with a local journalist named Nick Vinzani, who then posted it on Facebook…

32 friends had been invited, and none showed up. Matt Clauser, VP of Marketing for Peter Piper Pizza in Tucson confirmed that no one showed up for Teddy’s party. Quickly, the post went viral.

Teddy found himself with tons of gift offers.

People identified with what happened.

But most just wanted to wish Teddy a happy birthday.

And then the little man himself posted this thank you video…

Sometimes good things come out of bad situations.
