Awesome Locals Came To The Rescue And Attended 5-Year-Old's Birthday

There might be no sweeter group of people than the inhabitants of Spring Hill, Tennessee.

Lauren Sassmannshausen was at a loss when nobody attended her daughter Taliyah's fifth birthday party.

Despite having 30 people RSVP to the event, only a few adults showed up to the party, leaving Taliyah constantly asking when her friends were set to arrive.

Lauren told WKRN,

My daughter was asking every five minutes when her friends were going to be here. I was just in tears. I never thought that many people would not show up. It just hurt me. She kept asking me when her friends would be there and I kept saying, 'They're coming baby.'

That's when Lauren decided to take matters into her own hands and put out a call on Facebook to try to gain some last-minute attendees to celebrate the big day.

She posted the following to the “i heart spring hill (TN, y'all!)” Facebook group.

Locals saw the call and banded together to help fill out the party roster.

Within 10 minutes, people who had seen the post began to arrive with presents.

At the end of the caption on the video post, she thanked attendees, saying,

I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart and I want to express my gratitude to you all for coming out and making my baby girls birthday so very special. SO THANK YOU!!! GOD IS GREAT
