We at Torchwood Australia wanted to share with you, a Facebook page we recently discovered …
There is a boy in the US who has a birthday coming up soon, in March. His name is Colin and his Mother created this Facebook page for him –
She has written a beautiful post which is pinned at the top of that page, and I will share that with you, to give you an idea about the page –
“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.”
Now we’ve discovered a few things about Colin along the way; things like he is a sensitive and loving lad (that much is obvious in some of the videos his Mother has shared with us), and a biggy we found out was that he is a DOCTOR WHO FAN – WOO HOO….so of course, being fellow Whovians, we would love to see more people like his page, and leave birthday wishes etc on the page for him.
There have been 2 Million people worldwide like his page, and with over 2 weeks yet to go until his birthday, it wouldn’t surprise us if he hits the 3 Million mark.
So please go check out his page, and perhaps like it, read through some of the posts, and leave your special message for Colin.
I think it will take him ’til his 12th birthday, to read all his messages, and all the cards that he is being sent.
