That's way more than we have

Michigan elementary schooler Colin was afraid he wouldn’t have anybody to celebrate his 11th birthday with. “When I asked him if he wanted a party for his birthday, he said there wasn’t a point because he has no friends,” his mom Jennifer wrote last week on a Facebook page she created to celebrate Colin’s birthday.

Now, with more than 60,000 likes on his page, Colin has a whole lot of friends to celebrate with.

Jennifer also set up a P.O. Box where people can mail in birthday cards and letters to brighten up Colin’s b-day:

Jennifer plans to present the page to Colin on March 9th, his 11th birthday. Let’s hope he doesn’t know how to use Facebook himself, or else there goes that surprise.

Wow... Seriously if you didn't have to be disabled to get this many birthday wishes.... There are other people who have it just as difficult as this boy and don't have any disorders what about them? If people showed as much enthusiasm as they did with one boy to everyone they met would the world not be a better place for EVERYBODY?

@LucieCutting  Or..."Mom teaches boy that Elementary school can be difficult but there's a whole world out there".  No? Too positive?
