Thanks to social media, the story of a girl who spent her 18th birthday alone went viral, and solidified that this year, she would be surrounded by love.

Last year, Hallee Sorenson of Bangor, Maine, spent her 18th birthday alone when not one of her classmates showed up for her celebration. Sorenson’s cousin, Rebecca Guildford, posted a picture of Sorenson from her party last year, celebrating solo. It’s a sad scene, Hallee sitting at a table alone eating her birthday cake. To make sure this year would be different, Guildford posted the photo along with a caption that urged people to send birthday cards.

She continues, “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!”
