Sup Travellers?! How many friends do you have? To some people the amount my be too many to count. But prescribing a number to your friends tally is just useless when quality friends are lacking. It's all about quality over quantity but what do you do when you don't have any friends? There's no quantity versus quality if you have no friends. At that point a quality friend is just a hopeful wish and any friend would do especially when your celebrating your 11th birthday like Colin from Kalamazoo, Michigan  [pictured above].

When Colin's mother asked if he wanted to have a birthday party, he responded "Who am I going to invite? I don't have any friends." 

Jennifer, Colin's mom, became heartbroken by her son's response and decided to do something about it. She created a Facebook page a little over a week ago, with the intention of showing it to Colin on his birthday, March 9 2014. The Facebook page is called Happy Birthday Collin and Jennifer asked her friends and family to like the page in order to collect a dozen or so Facebook Likes for Colin's birthday. But as soon as the internet found out about Colin's story the love poured in from all over the world. The page grew to a massive 1.8 million likes so far. 

According to Jennifer, he still doesn't know about the page and won't until his birthday on March 9th. But how is that even possible? I'm sure he must find out out about it before March. If he doesn't find out about it himself i'm sure that someone will tell him. So far he doesn't know about the page and hopefully Jennifer can keep it a surprise till then. 

I'm so jealous of this kid right now. 1.8 million fans is a crazy number. I've been blogging for years and i'm nowhere close to that. But at the end of the day, no one deserves to be alone on their birthday and besides his friends family, Colin is going to have quite a lot of people to celebrate his birthday with.

What's the most amount of Facebook Likes you've ever gotten for your birthday? I'd love to know. ANYWAY, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
