NORTH PORT, FL (NBC) -

A young autistic boy in Florida was about to experience heartbreak. 

No one RSVP'd to attend his birthday party for the third year in a row, so his parents came up with an idea and it exceeded their expectations. 

When nobody RSVP'd to Daniel's birthday party, his parents gave an invitation to the police department hoping a couple of officers would show up.

To their surprise, a parade of squad cars showed up and a group of officers celebrated Daniel's birthday.

Since that day, Daniel received birthday greetings from strangers all over the country, as far away as Hawaii. 

Now, the city of North Port is planning to throw a birthday bash for Daniel and any other kid who has experienced the pain of having no one come to their party. 

The city's birthday bash will be on July 3, but details are still being worked out.

Daniel's parents have also heard from other parents in the area who are offering to setup play dates with their son so he can make some new friends.
