8-Year-Old Girl Gets No Replies To Birthday Party Invitations, But Friendly Strangers Are Ready To Help Out


The best elementary school birthday parties are filled with mouthfuls of cake, balloons, streamers, and celebrations you’ll never forget. When it comes to making someone’s special day truly shine, not everyone is as kind as we would hope. When she received only one RSVP to her party, an eight-year-old girl in Tennessee felt this unexpected cruelty from her classmates.

Like any little girl, Charlotte Joy Sexton was expecting perhaps a few friends, a round of pin the tail on the donkey, and lots of sugary snacks. After her sister, Chloe, posted on TikTok in July 2022, she got so much more. 

If your child’s class sends out birthday invitations, please come. It’s like, an hour or two of your life,” Sexton told viewers, explaining the disheartening party situation. “My little sister turns eight tomorrow, and her birthday party is this weekend.” she continued, mentioning their recent hardships. 

After losing her mother to brain cancer 83 days ago, Sexton made sure her sister had a party despite their collective sadness. However, their mailbox remained empty. One child from her class RSVP’d.” Sexton said disappointedly. She admitted, “I haven’t even told her that.”. Her whole class knew what happened.”. 

Considering that they knew about their loss, Sexton said she was shocked that the children and their families would act so coldly. One day before her sister’s birthday party, her TikTok was posted on July 4.

Nine million people saw the TikTok video and a local group felt they had to take action. Suddenly, RSVPs poured in, but not from classmates. Everyone, everywhere. Asking to attend and even offering to help. There were floods of Instagram messages from moms…I had a team of women who were to decorate my house, help me clean it, assemble the balloon garlands at their own homes, and bring them back and hang them. So it took on a life of its own right away.” Sexton said.

Charlotte hadn’t really had a birthday party yet, so the day was even more special. It wasn’t just Charlotte’s first birthday without her mother. 

As Sexton clarified, Charlotte’s first birthday party was her first ever. “A lot of cancer patients who have little children make these sacrifices and have to decide whether to keep them or not.” 

‘Well, that depends on my strength and energy. I want to be healthy, but if I invite people and germs into my home, I could put my life at risk.’ 

That was something my mom never got to do.” She explained, explaining how their mother’s illness affected Charlotte’s childhood. 

Their spirits were not dampened by grief that day. She told her sister, “I feel like this was the most special day of my life.” With birthday cards still coming in from all over the world, it looks like it will be a long lasting memory.
