A mother, Lauren O'Rourke, had to call the Domino's restaurant in Coolum, Queensland, Australia, last week to cancel the sizeable order she had earlier placed for her daughter's birthday, as the girl's friends didn't show up to the party. However, the birthday girl's day was made when she got a surprise gift from a Domino's employee instead. Domino's Australia, in a Facebook post, revealed that the store's shift manager, Miles, felt extremely disheartened hearing that no one showed up for the girl's birthday and decided to do something special to try and lift up her spirits.



Domino's Australia posted a picture of Miles on its official Facebook page with the caption, "Last week, Domino's Coolum received a call from a local Mum hoping to cancel the large order she had placed as a number of her daughter's peers hadn't turned up to her birthday party." As soon as Miles heard this, he came up with an idea and put together a temporary cake."When she arrived at the store to collect the one pizza, shift supervisor Miles surprised her with a custom chocolate dessert pizza topped with churros & brownies! Thank you Miles for going the extra 'mile' to help turn this customer's day around," the post mentioned. Before the order was picked up, Miles posed for a photo with the cake and a "Happy B'Day" message scrawled in chocolate on the back of a pizza box.

Lauren was extremely touched by the gesture, posting her happiness on Facebook in a post that read, "Skylahs birthday💖 this was the most wonderfully kind and generous and so loving gesture from Miles and the team at our local domino’s . 🌻☺️❤️ Son - daughter 🙂"


The proud mother also commented on Dominos Australia's post, saying, "Skylah had a lovely birthday with two very special friends. The visit from Miles at our door was overly special and the biggest surprise. The love from our community has been the most memorable for our family. So much love. We are so appreciative and grateful to live this beautiful life. Sending love and happiness to everyone."

Miles' gesture is doing the rounds on social media, with the Dominos worker receiving admiration from many commenters on Facebook. User Shaz Demop commented, "This is heartbreaking, as a mum of a couple of autistic kids I know what it's like when your children don't have friends to invite to parties. this story really touched my heart. I hope the love being sent to this Mum for her daughter lets her know that there are a lot of beautiful people out there, just like Miles, and reminds her daughter that this happens but it won't always be like this. He will find his tribe xx."

“Good job Miles, I hope that cheered her up, heartbreaking when people don’t turn up for the party,” another user wrote. “This is my biggest fear as a parent. So happy there was somewhat of a good ending to this,” a mum wrote. Over 2000 people responded in the comments requesting Domino's to help plan a new party for the little child because "no kid (or their parents) should ever endure that type of sadness," it read. Others pressured the Dominos outlet to give Miles a promotion and pay him more. Domino's commended Miles for making an effort to cheer up the girl. "Miles you absolute legend! Give this kid a raise. What seems like a small thing is actually such a massive act of kindness. And NO! I’m not crying, you’re crying," a user wrote. "Surely miles gets a pay rise," wrote another.
