Feel good news: Girl Spent 18th Birthday Alone, so World Sends her Thousands of Cards for 19th Birthday.

This girl spent her 18th birthday alone. But the world wouldn’t let it happen again.

In a world where terrorist attacks, homophobic attacks, bullying and racism seem to be a daily occurrence, isn’t it lovely when humanity says “I’m gonna be awesome today.”

Rebecca Guildford told us last week that her cousin Hallee Sorenson had spent her 18th birthday alone. She has autism and her classmates were a no-show at her party.

It’s her 19th birthday next month, so Rebecca asked the world to be kinder to her cousin this year.

Rebecca Lynn Facebook: EVERYONE PLEASE READ:: I NEED A FAVOR This is my cousin Hallee. I’d like to tell you a little bit about her… First off, she is a beautiful young woman-both inside and out. She lights up a room with her smile.Hallee is funny, sweet, caring, smart, an athlete, a jigsaw puzzle champion, a wonderful student, and a best friend to all. Hallee is an amazing person-a person I am proud to be related to. She is also a person who just happens to have Autism. She has never let that small detail define who she is as a person-which is why I refuse to use it as something to describe her. A fun fact is that Hallee’s Birthday is fast approaching! And this is where I have a favor to ask of all of you…. Below is a picture of Hallee last year at her 18th birthday party. She had been so excited to have a party with her friends. She wanted to go bowling, have fun, and eat cake and Ice Cream. Invitations went out to her classmates at school and to other friends in the area. Hallee sat at her party anxiously waiting for her friends to arrive so they could have fun….but Hallee’s friends would never arrive. Not a single one. Below is the picture of her celebrating alone – eating her birthday cake. My cousin is a beautiful young woman who will always have the mind of a child…so as you can imagine, she was heartbroken and beyond sad. She was hurt… But you can help make this years birthday incredible!! I would love to flood her mailbox with birthday cards, from all over! Hal loves getting mail- this would be the best birthday gift she could ask for. If you could find it in your heart to take a few mins out of your day and send her a card, I would be forever greatful. This would mean a lot to her mother as well, for as you can imagine, watching your child cry into her birthday cake breaks your heart. If there is anyone who deserves a great birthday, this is the girl. Feel free to share this post! Hallee’s 19th Birthday is in July Address: Hallee Sorenson 34 Wellesley Way Bangor, ME 04401 Please help us make this birthday memorable. Thank you, Becky ❤ ::::;UPDATE::::: Many people are asking about sending gifts. This is incredibly sweet of all of you and my family is very appreciative. That being said, gifts truly aren’t necessary. A nice card would be just fine!!! Thank you so much.

So far,  Halle has received more than 10,000 cards, letters and parcels.

What a good lot we all are!
