Facebook brings joy to a young boy without friends
A woman in Kalamazoo, Michigan named Jennifer recently asked her son Colin if he wanted a party for his 11th birthday next month. Colin told her no because he said he didn't have any friends.
Last year Colin was diagnosed with a condition similar to Asperger's, and it's not east 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.
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. 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".
