Australia knows how to party, especially when it comes to saving a little boy's birthday. 

Rachelle Briannon posted in the Facebook community group page 'Midnight Mums,' saying she'd invited 12 kids to celebrate her son Taenon's 4th birthday -- but an hour before the party was to begin, ALL the kids canceled.

According to the post, this was the first year her son understood what birthday celebrations were all about, and was really excited.

After she posted to the group, at least 30 children showed up, some traveling from nearly 30 minutes away.

A local party supply company donated helium balloons for the occasion and three members of the State Emergency Service came to let the children explore their truck.

Rachelle posted a follow-up thank you note to the group expressing her gratitude to the total strangers who helped saved the day.

In part, she wrote:

"People took time and money from their own lives and invested it into me and my son. No one could ever know how much I appreciate it all."
