Hallee Sorenson celebrated her 18th birthday alone, but her cousin is making sure this year’s birthday is extra special…with your help.

Rebecca Lyn took to Facebook this month with a heartbreaking story: her autistic cousin Hallee threw a birthday party last year but none of her friends or classmates attended.

“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.”

Rebecca shared a photo of Hallee sitting alone at what should have been a celebration with friends.



To make sure Hallee has an amazing birthday this July, Rebecca is asking everyone to send Hallee a birthday card.

“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.”

The post has already been shared over 142,000 times since being posted June 7, so it looks like Hallee’s mailman is about to get a major workout.

Rebecca describes her cousin as “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.”

I’ll definitely be sending Hallee my best wishes, and you should too.
