No One Shows Up To 4yr Old's Birthday As Chuck E. Cheese Employee Hatches Secret Plan
Tatiana Bosc 8/13/2018
Four-year-old Evan couldn't wait to celebrate his birthday at Chuck E. Cheese. His mother had invited 30 people to the popular pizza arcade, but as the minutes ticked by it quickly became clear that none of the guests were going to show up.
Mom Angela Kazanis kept a brave face as she anxiously watched the door, but inside she was falling apart. How could she watch her little boy be disregarded by his peers in such a dramatic fashion?
Thankfully, the staff at Chuck E. Cheese was also keeping a close eye on the situation...
As mom did her best to entertain the little boy, she had no idea that a Chuck E. Cheese employee was peering at them from across the room. Employee Taylor Inzinna told Inside Edition that she was absolutely heartbroken by the situation, escaping to the bathroom to keep herself from crying at the young boy's disappointment.
"I immediately ran to the kitchen and was so upset. [His mom] was handling it so much better than I was. ... She held it together and never let Evan know for a second she was upset, which I think was super awesome."
As she watched the mother-son duo make the most of his special day, she quickly realized what she needed to do.
Taking to social media, Taylor immediately hatched a plan. Posting on Facebook, the employee asked if anyone would be willing to donate a gift for the sweet four-year-old, and within a matter of days, her wish was granted.
"Within three to four days, I had about 13 gifts [for Evan]."
With over a dozen gifts from family and friends, Inzinna quickly called the boy's mother and asked her to bring her son back.
What cameras captured next will leave you in tears - as the generous employee's actions turned the preschooler's disappointing birthday into a day he would never forget. He was treated like a Birthday Boy should be treated – a cake, presents, and a full-blown party filled with people who truly cared about him.
"The day he came back in, seeing the smile on his face was everything I wanted. I had one goal that day and my goal was to make sure that he left happy. And he left going, 'Oh my God, Mom, this is the best day ever.'''
Taylor didn't need to get involved, but she saw the chance to really help Evan and show him human kindness. What a sweet, selfless young lady.
