A Michigan boy is in for a very big birthday surprise, all thanks to his mom.
When Jennifer Cunningham asked her 10-year-old son, Colin, if he wanted a birthday party, the response she got back was heartbreaking. He said no, because he had no friends to invite.
Colin has a hard time connecting with kids because of a condition similar to Asperger’s syndrome.
Jennifer decided to make a Facebook page, “Happy Birthday Colin,” with the hope that friends and family would wish Colin well on his special day. To her surprise, the page went viral and now has over a million likes and counting. Strangers from across the world are sending messages for Colin’s big day. And the best part is Colin doesn’t know about the page at all. The plan is to reveal it on his birthday, March 9.
His little sister (who is keeping the secret as well) thinks that when Colin sees the messages he will “scream his pants off.”
The web can lead to wonderful things, don’t you think?
