After encountering a lack of inclusiveness from children at school, Colin’s mother Jennifer posted an appeal on Facebook which has since gone viral. In 2014, Jennifer asked America to become one of “Colin’s Friends” and wish him a happy birthday. Within days over 80,000 cards and gifts poured into their local post office for Colin… and they keep coming today! Colin was even featured in a music video by Galvanized Souls, featuring Colin and his family’s visit to Good Morning America.
Join Colin and his mom, creator of Colin’s Friends, as they share the story behind their surprise rise to fame, the importance of inclusion and the creation of Be Kind Day. Remember to celebrate Be Kind Day on March 9 with random acts of kindness… and bowties!
