Send a Card to Give Colin a Happy Birthday!

Posted on February 23, 2014

Send a birthday card to Colin who is turning 11 on March 9th this year! He is feeling very alone because of a disability he has that interferes with his social interactions, and told his mom that he doesn’t want a birthday party because he has no friends.  Read more below…

I am Colin’s mom, I created this page for my amazing, wonderful, challenging son who is about to turn 11 on March 9th. Because of Colin’s disabilities, social skills are not easy for him, and he often acts out in school, and the other kids don’t like him. So when I asked him if he wanted a party for his birthday, he said there wasn’t a point because he has no friends. He eats lunch alone in the office everyday because no one will let him sit with them, and rather than force someone to be unhappy with his presence, he sits alone in the office. So I thought, if I could create a page where people could send him positive thoughts and encouraging words, that would be better than any birthday party. Please join me in making my very original son feel special on his day.” – Happy Birthday Colin Facebook Page

His mother even set up a private p.o. box so that she could secretly collect birthday letters from people who would send them! So far, thousands of people have seen this mom’s Facebook page and have been sending Colin mail by the hundreds per day.  And you can too!!!! It’s not too late.  The address is:  

PO box 756 Richland, MI 49083-0756

Happy good-deed-doing! <3
