300 Bikers Showed Up For Boy’s Birthday Party After His Classmates Didn't RSVP.

Bikers have a reputation of being tough, mean, and scary, but that's just a stereotype, and you really shouldn't judge a book by its cover. It turns out that they've got big hearts, and they're capable of doing some amazing things. This is something that one mother from Slinger, Wisconsin discovered when she needed help to save her autistic son's birthday party. It turns out that out of 70 invitations only 3 classmates RSVPed, and she was frantically trying to figure out what she was going to do to get new party guests at such short notice, and that's when this gang of motorcyclists came to her rescue.

Maranda Karna was in quite a pickle because she needed guests for her son's 10th birthday party.

She wanted to give Thomas the very best birthday of his young life, especially since her kid had to deal with autism and other health ailments since the day he was born. This was supposed to be his day, but things didn't go the way she expected.

Karna had sent out 70 invitations to her son's classmates, but only three of them had said yes.

As a mother, she saw how badly her son struggled emotionally and socially because of his autism, so it seemed terribly unfair that virtually no one was coming to his birthday party. But all hope was not lost.
