Facebook Page Asking For Birthday Wishes Goes Viral

Facebook Page Asking For Birthday Wishes Goes Viral

A Facebook page created to help a mom wish her son a happy 11th birthday is going viral.

Mom Jennifer created the Happy Birthday Colin Facebook page after he told her he didn't want to celebrate his birthday this year because he doesn't have any friends.

On the page, Jennifer said Colin doesn't have great social skills and he often acts out in school because of disabilities. She created the page so people could send him positive thoughts and encouraging words for his big day, which is less than a month away, on March 9.

Jennifer started the page February 2 and it already has more than 1 million likes and thousands of messages and comments from people all over showing their support for the soon-to-be 11 year old.

And Jennifer's keeping it all a secret; in a recent post, she said she's waiting to share the page with her son until his birthday.

If you don't have Facebook and want to participate, you can send a letter in the mail for Colin to:

PO Box 756
Richland, MI 49083-0756
