Birthday Cards for Colin

Every once in a while I just randomly hear about something that is so worthwhile I cannot help but to get excited and participate. Flash back to last week when I was in Pennsylvania and heard the buzz about a new Facebook page going around called "Happy Birthday Colin". Of course I had to check it out for myself and I was immediately hooked. Colin is a 10-year old boy who will be turning 11 on March 9th. When his mom asked him if he wanted to have a birthday party, Colin told her there was no point in having one because he did not have any friends. Because of Colin's varying disabilities, the kids at school pick on him to a point where he eats alone every day in the school office. His mom created the Facebook page in hopes that she could encourage people around the country to send Colin a birthday card to let him know he does have friends out there and we all hope he has the best birthday in the world!

So last night I picked up a birthday card for sweet Colin and placed it in the mail this morning. It is my hope that you all will take the time as well to send him some birthday love. Let me know if you send him one as I would love to see how far this reaches! 

You can find more information here on the "Happy Birthday Colin" Facebook page.
