A Kid in Michigan Didn’t Want a Birthday Party Because He Had No Friends…So His Mom Posted on Facebook and Tons of Cards Are Showing Up
A woman in Kalamazoo, Michigan named Jennifer recently asked her son Colin if he wanted a party for his 11th birthday next month. And he told her no…because he said he didn’t have any friends.
Now, last year Colin was diagnosed with a condition similar to Asperger’s, and it’s not EASY for him to make friends. So to cheer him up, Jennifer created a Facebook page on February 2nd called “Happy Birthday Colin,” hoping he’d get a few birthday wishes.
But in the last ten days, the page has gone VIRAL…and now has nearly A MILLION likes from people all over the world.
Better yet, Jennifer posted a P.O. box where people could send cards if they wanted. And a BUNCH have already started showing up.
Colin’s birthday is March 9th, and Jennifer wants to keep it a secret until then. If you want to send a card or a gift, address it to “Colin, P.O. Box 756, Richland, Michigan 49083″.
