No One Came to a Kid’s Birthday . . . So 5,000 People Sent Him Texts, and Hundreds of People Threw Him a Party
A great kid in Peterborough named Odin Camus turned 13 on Friday, and was SUPPOSED to have a party with 15 friends from school. But he has Asperger’s and gets bullied a lot, and no one accepted his invitation.
So his mom Melissa posted about it on Facebook, and asked her friends to send him a text on his new phone to cheer him up.
Which they did . . . but they also reposted her Facebook message. Then it went viral . . . and he got text messages from more than FIVE THOUSAND people from all over the world.
More than 11,000 people on Twitter also wished him a happy birthday . . . including Elijah Wood, Molly Ringwald, The Toronto Raptors, and the Toronto Blue Jays.
And since Odin didn’t get to have a party, his mom also posted that they were going bowling Friday night, booked a limo for it, and said anyone could come. And when they got there . . . hundreds of people were waiting for him with presents!
