Happy Birthday Colin

Friendless kid thanks the internet for the best birthday surprise EVER

Colin told his mum he had no friends for a party so she found him millions online.

A BOY WHO said he couldn’t have a birthday party because he had no friends has taken to the internet to say thank you to the two million people who have helped make his big day very special.

Colin told his mammy that there was no point throwing a birthday party for him because nobody in school liked him.

Determined to give her son – who has a disorder similar to Aspergers – a big surprise, Jennifer Cunningham created a Facebook page last month to gather a few nice birthday wishes.

Within a week one million greetings came flooding in and today, Colin’s 11th birthday, the grand total stands at just over two million.

The birthday boy finally knows what’s his mammy has been up to over the past month and wants everyone who wished him well to know how grateful he is.

The 11-year-old Michigan lad has been enjoying a three day celebration, which began with a surprise party on national breakfast television.

And as if two million birthday greetings weren’t enough to make his day special, the team at Good Morning America gave him the ultimate present: A trip to Disney World for himself and his family.

Happy Birthday Colin!
