[irene pallante johnson] - What a great way to start my day..All smiles here..
[barbara huffman fleming] - Hoping you will share the expression on his face when he sees all of this - people are wonderful!!!
[trudy turner] - its official my grandson has been diagnosed with the same thing Colin has ...we found out yesterday for sure...explains a lot of problems he has in school also..,,he is only in kindergarten but this is his second year in school, and I know he has very few friends...my heart brakes for all the Colin's in this world...I am so happy that he will have a wonderful birthday and see how much love there is for him...and thank you, because you have also given back to those of us who have loved ones with the same disease.
[janet stolowski hannon] - WOW!! the mail response is fantastic! Please take video of the moment he sees this and post it for all to see!
[heather case pincoe] - My class is in the process of making cards! I will mail them on Tuesday! This is such an awesome thing you are doing!
[cindy ryan ferrick] - Wow! He will still be opening cards until his 12th birthday! People are awesome!
[kim hughes] - I think there are a great many of us who are just as excited as you. Please post birthday pics.
[ortal cohen nail art] - please please please- post a video in the day he will open the facebook and the gifts!! i want to see that!!! :D
[paula walker] - just when you want to give up on finding good people ...you see kindness like this <3
[gina torchia drake] - My high school special ed students are sending cards they hand made Monday!
[heather tanner] - it touches the heart to see so many people come together for such a wonderful reason and what a great idea mom, you can now tell Colin the WORLD is his friend, hugs and best wishes from snowy Vermont!
[tizzie cregan] - I am SOOOO thrilled for Colin!!!! I hope this is a life changing experience for him!
[barb retchless-norrick] - Today I love everyone. What a beautiful world we live in when we can all come together for a child's smile
[stephen j sullivan] - You are so screwed. You may get completely buried in mail for months to come. But an 11 year old boy will love it!
[ingrid brown] - Just think if everyone put one dollar in each card we know Colin would get whatever education in however way to be anything be wants to be by time for college.
[helen takacs-morehead] - Ok, first of all they r not taking advantage of anyone
.....this is mankind doing something wonderful for a little boy and they can't control what is sent, so get over it!!!! And second, colin doesn't know about this, its a surprise which will be revealed on his birthday! Read the full story before flappin ur lips. Always gotta have buttheads! U go colin!!!! :)
[kimberly hodge-faris] - Please on his birthday and you give him all these.... can you get a picture of his face..... This is soooo AWESOME!!!!!
[gina stalker-boyle] - What would be amazing is for his entire school to gather and sing him Happy Birthday. I am sure that even with all the gifts he still needs to have a friend at school that likes him for who he is inspire what ever issues he may have. None of us are perfect and that is what we need to teach our children. I challenge his school to make this a big deal and a lesson to all those kids who judge Colin because he is different.
[elizabeth bumpass] - The address is:
P O Box 756
Richland, MI 49083-0757
I sent my card a few days ago ...its great to see the out pour of love ...more people should reach out like his mom did, it might stop a child from committing suicide because they feel alone or like no one cares
[abbee reyff hurt] - Tony is a sad lonely person .....
[jackie fitz] - I hope you video tape his reaction and post it id be so excited to see it
[susan charity] - I wish that I could have done this when my son who is now 23 was younger. He has a learning disability too (dyspraxia). He had no friends at school was never invited to attend any parties and no one ever wanted to come to his. Happy birthday Colin.
[robin jones] - I love that everyone is coming together to show your little man that he is liked and he does matter! Sometimes this world can seem so discouraging and then you see something like this! My 11 yr old son struggles with friends as well and he has asked if he can send Colin a bday card and I told him of course!
[dorette heiman] - Wow! Just when my hope for humanity fades people pull together and amaze me. Happy Birthday, Colin! Good job humanity. :)
[kerri frazier wiser] - So happy for Colin and the post office, lol! This should prevent any rise in stamps for the next few years! Bahahaha!
[cindy bounds] - I hope the classmates of Colin will have their minds changed and see that everyone deserves a chance and become friends.
[jack bakker] - He's gonna need his very own zip-code! LOL !
[linea sundbye palmer] - Haha, you guys are saving the post office! Nobody sends letters anymore? We'll just see about that!
[barbara n randy hall] - Wow! How awesome ! Cannot wait to see posts of Colin on his birthday!!!!
[tanya peterson felsheim] - I think almost time to start a foundation....Colin's friends...not about colin...but about all the kids out there who do or do not have any sort of disabilities but need friends....people are so full of love to give even though they might not be close by!
[denise williams] - Sweet boy, loving parents, and good people sharing their support....sometimes humanity can be soooo good! <3
[kim naegel] - I would love to see a video of his reaction........it will be priceless!!!!!!
[jody sanderson] - The generosity of people is truly humbling. This is an incredible memory that should last a lifetime. I can't wait to see the pictures. I would love to see a video of your son's reaction when he sees all this.
[amy doucette] - This is the best part of the internet.
[melisa thompson] - I hope you post a video of his reaction to the surprise! ! So many people being generous, they deserve to witness it, since millions have become a part
[tanya halpin] - This restores my faith in humanity =)
[nico hovs] - It's amazing what we the people ..can do when we come together. .. This is why the government and media try to keep us divided.
[sue griffiths gardner] - People are good, kind, and willing to help others. What you have done for your child is a lesson to all of us. Thank you, and God bless you and your family.
[troy johnson] - Its going to take a month for him to open all of his cards. What an amazing thing the world is doing. We aren't sending our card till just before his birthday and I am sure others people are going to be doing the same so the real avalanche may not have hit you yet. Keep us posted.
[david n rachael] - Colin, No matter how rough life is for you, just be nice to others, and others will be nice to you. For those who aren't nice to you, they aren't worth your time anyway. Kids can be mean, whether you have autisim, or not... but there are good kids out there. Befriend them, and enjoy life.
[michael t. schlegel sr.] - I hope everyone puts $1.00 in all those cards. Then Colin can throw is own Block Birthday Party.. Happy Birthday Bud
[chris jennings] - He should open several everyday so he will always feel the love from all over!
[josephine pena] - Thanks for the updates. Nice to see the love in the world. Love and Peace.
[laura sait] - I wonder, if there are just waaaay too many gifts etc, that Colin and his family might distribute them to other less fortunate children? Perhaps children at hospitals or rehab facilities, or if there is even a way to find other kids who once felt liked Colin did?? I sent a card to Colin, and it got me wondering about the many who are dealing with similar issues. Would love to see this the start of something huge, something that could be shared by more and more each day! If we can do this for one, imagine what we could do for more!!!!
[renata tabosa] - I bought a cute gift for him. Going to the post office on Monday to ship it. All the way from Brazil wishing Colin a marvelous birthday. <3
[teresa partridge] - this is so awesome! please post pictures of Colins reaction when he sees all this please!
Happy Birthday Colin: Day 4 at the Post Office. Oh boy! - 50th Comments
[patty bonilla] - I shed a tear every time I see how so many people are sending cards and gifts to a little boy they never met... With all the negative and bad news you read or watch on the news there is always a million more heart warming and amazing things going on you never read or hear about. Love it.
[tanya bradley] - Don't be so cynical. Colin's birthday isn't until March 9th so of course you wouldn't see him opening gifts or reading cards
[phillip joseph ochoa] - You should set up a webcam so when you sing happy birthday all of Colin's new friends can sing along!!!
[patricia lorena marmol holguin] - What a blessing! I get teary eyed to think of how happy lil Colin is gonna feel! Its so nice to see how strangers can be so giving and can change someones life...
[paige lafferty] - Wow, I can not believe people these days. Let Colin and his parents decide what they want to do with all the gifts he receives. Don't tell them what they need to do. It's the child's birthday, he deserves every single thing he receives. Jealously is a disease!
[amy connor keffer] - Thank you for giving the world an opportunity to feel blessed by being part of this. <3
[joyce mccartney] - I love how the world pulls together for 1special little boy!!!
[adriane wilkins ragan] - Thanks Mom for keeping us FB followers posted! This just makes me smile. It gives me hope that love and kindness still exist in our often troubled world.
[elizabeth bohle] - Gives you a renewed faith in humanity, doesn't it?
[jennifer kopcik mccallum] - That is crazy! I think you should have a hidden camera on his birthday! I would love to see his reaction.
[cathy rehn schmidt] - I love seeing Mom and Dad's reactions to all this LOVE too! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!
[elisa yeung cooper] - He will have enough cards to read until his next birthday! :)
[amelia giordano] - Please take pictures of his beautiful smiling face when he opens this multitude of mail!! 😍❤️
[lynn hardy kokoshki] - He's going to be 21 before he gets through all the FB messages and all that mail! LOL
[van go] - I'm laughing because what's going to happen on his 12th birthday? there's no way you guys can out do this one lol
[tami bronn] - I'm so proud of how our human community is coming together for Colin. I think his story struck a personal cord with each one of us.
[jennifer burkett] - It would be really awesome if the principle, teacher, classmates, and school would do a birthday video for him. Happy Birthday!
[laura lv] - They shouldn't donate some of them to other children with the same issue, cause people send them for Colin. His name must be on every card anyway. But starting a foundation would be a great idea!
[carol l. owens] - I agree with Mary Lou Jennings, open them first!! This internet thing is amazing, but there are sickos out there that will try to ruin your sons happiness. I am so proud to have been able to share these posts so Colin can have an amazing Birthday!!!!!
[kim obarr mcardle] - What would be cool is if every person who sent him a card would send $1 he would have a million dollars in no time ;)
[cindi debiasi] - Happy Birthday Colin....I personally think your greatest gift is your awesome Mom and Dad. To be loved in that capacity is God's Blessing!! 🎉😊💜🎁🎈🎂
[christine barth barone] - Cannot wait till you post a pic of him when he sees that all these people want to wish him a happy birthday
[david zupec] - Wow, that's great! It'll take Colin till his next birthday to read all of his cards and open up his gifts! : )
[lesley bettenhausen priest] - Moms have superpowers.
[kate bendon] - Bless his heart, it's gonna be his next birthday before he's finished opening everything! Fantastic!! :D xxx
[stephanie michelle] - 😊👌👍👏 finally. Happiness on FB!
[tammy heninger] - Posting this on the cake boss's wall asking for a special cake for Colin any help from his friends would be greatly appreciated!
[tamela wade] - Collin represents all of us who have felt, at some point in our lives, that we didn't have any friends. I thinks that's why so many people or stepping up and reaching out to him.
[garret thefunk sandoval] - Just mailed a deck of spare Pokémon cards, with a level X Mewtwo! Hope you like them, Colin!
[lana mcnabb] - Love seeing this.. He deserves it! So good to see people coming together to lift someone up.. <3
[carl williamson] - Seeing all the thousands of people that have dipped into their own pockets to make a strangers day feel special has restored my faith in humanity. Why can't we always be like this?
[greg kozak] - ...and yet for him, how many countless other people out there suffer for nothing more than being who they are? Granted, there is a distinct difference between what we choose to be, and what we bring into the world with us, but far too many of us are castigated, denigrated, harmed, and even killed because of things over which we have no control, things that make us who we are as unique individuals. It is my sincere hope and prayer that this wonderful unfolding doesn't just stop here, but results in even more and greater things down the road for others as well. Perhaps each of us should start looking for ways we can do this sort of thing in our own lives for others. They don't have to be big, orchestrated events. Sometimes even a little gesture of kindness and understanding can make a huge difference. I'm not naïve enough to think that we can solve all the problems of the world. But that's not the point. We can strive to help others in our very midst, to look for opportunities to do so, to ask God to make us aware of them, to guide us to and through them, and to work through us to help those around us in need.
[erika modgling] - He's gonna be one Excited little boy. He deserve's every bit of it!
[beth tamney] - I hope you can post a video of his face when he sees it!
[bleu carter] - So wonderful brings tears to my eyes. The power of a mother with a great idea, she will move mountains.
[lori rajunas] - OMGSH I never thought about it but yes you shod open them before he does in case of weirdos! You are an AWESOME mom to this perfect little boy :)
[michelle norton] - Take that bullies and meanies!
[jessica taylor] - This just warms my heart. People are good! Let this be a spark that starts a fire. Talk to your children, one small act of kindness is how it begins!
[danielle bright] - Pleeeeease video when he sees all of it!!!
[sherry m smith] - You are such a marvelous mom! Your little boy will never forget this. There are people out there that love him and want to be his friend and I hope he sees this come his birthday. Please have a video camera ready when this is revealed because I sure would love to see his face. Much love to you! God is good!!!♡♡♡
[leann burchett] - colin is going to be opening mail for a year LOL

[alyx pace] - This could really restore your faith in humanity! Cherish Finley Shabnam Khalatbari
[amber blake] - This is so incredible. That boy is not going to know what to do with all those! Hopefully it will bring a new perspective to him that there is a much bigger world out there after school.
[tracy silva pagliuca] - ....and Just when I start to think people suck.... This is beautiful!!! I love when everyone pulls together!!!
[christine stewart] - Amazing!! There's so many wonderful people in this world .. it restores the humanity in all of us. Let us know the final tally of how many cards he receives .. I'm sure from nearly every country in the world. We sent one from Canada ... you should get it soon buddy.

[andrew scott williamson] - Not to put a dampner on it but are the parents going to vet every letter before handing them to their son??? As horrible as it sounds there are a lot of weirdos and creeps out there........!:/
[michelle martin-gibbs] - Brought tears to my eyes. Such an awesome response. That young mans birthday is going to be the best ever..Can't wait to see the video of his response. Question is how are you hiding ALL the stuff now?
[opec gallegos] - Faith in humanity restored.
[ann d'avanzo aly ahmed] - Take a picture of all of them around him. He'll have cards to open for 10 years. God Bless. Also take a video of his surprise.
[becky bansley cherney] - Maybe you can donate some of the overabundance of toys to your local children's advocacy or to your local police department. Spread the generosity. Just a thought. :-)
[theresa uhlenhake] - Amazing what the love of a mom can do
[jamie stadler] - Amazed by how many people in this world still care about things like this. It gives me hope. Happy bday lil guy..
[christine mckenna mccloskey] - This makes me so HAPPY! It is great to see the generousity of others; when you often lose hope in humanity from all the stories on the news! KUDOS to all that have contributed in one way or another to make Colin's 11th Birthday --- the BEST Birthday EVER :) <3 <3

[abigail elaine] - you guys rock!!! we love colin!
[janine hartman roeling] - COLIN IS NOW A PART OF HISTORY! Not just for the USA but the World. You Mum are Collins gift. The love for your child has been forever captured by pen to paper, hand to keys, songs to the sky and a Face to a Book. You are both a gift & I thank you for letting US be the Ribbons & Bows. Perhaps all the posts could be printed and made into a book. A true recoding of the world united as one for Mum and Child. You and Colin are history without boarders. Happy Birthday.
[tana hagel] - In the beginning my heart was breaking for not only your son but for you, his parents...I invited every single person on my friends list to like and share your page...now, I don't know about you but for me my heart is swelling with tears and pride and hope that there are still people out there who are willing to do whatever they can to show a little boy how very loved he is by people who have never met him...this has helped to restore my faith in humanity...I hope you get someone to get some video of him when you present him with his multitude of new friends!!! God Bless you both!!! And God Bless everyone who has helped to make a difference in Colin's life...I hope he has the best birthday EVER!!!
[dennis wyatt] - This is awesome on a level that is staggeringly amazing and ridiculous. My faith in humanity's desire to make a positive difference has been completely restored.
[joy mcgilvery] - HOLY CRAP! He will still be opening cards when he turns 30!
This, maybe on a lesser scale would be awesome for many special needs kids!
[pattie gallo] - This country has proven how awesome it is ......Colin you are loved by so many
[lisa gibson] - Imagine if we all came together like this all the time what we could accomplish in this world!
[jimmie noplis briggs] - It's ashame that this is necessary to let one little boy know how special he is in this great big world... it's a simple thing of people need to be KINDER to one another and teach their children simple kindness. My father use to say "KNOW PERSON IS BETTER THAN YOU AND YOU ARE NO BETTER THAN ANY OTHER PERSON GOD CREATED"
[lynn henrich] - Looks like Colin is going to feel like the most loved person in the world on his birthday. I wish I could see his face on the day. I bet a lot of people do. Hope there will be pictures posted.
[brenda kaye ard] - Start a college fund with any money left after he gets to pick a few birthday toys! Awesome to see!
[diana pena] - Maybe start a YouTube page of Colins reactions opening some of his mail! That could definitely go viral quickly! And spark more interest! Or ask some of his supporters to send clips wishing him a Happy Birthday for you to post on his channel. Aww ♥
[janie ginn] - I for one cannot wait for Colin's birthday to see the look on his face with all the cards and birthday wishes from around the world.

[sarah kimball] - This absolutely restores my faith in humanity

[april emigh] - Mom,Dad. What's going to be the plan of attack opening all those once he gets tired? 10 a day? are you keeping a count of all the letters and packages? We would all LOVE to know the final count
[clifton mcnees] - Thats awesome shows how many good people are in this world still

[jennifer mandin] - Tony Galano, I think you're the one that needs the therapy, not this family. Colin has a disorder that is like autism, she never said he didn't have a mental disorder. Kids that have autism or something like it find it very hard to make friends and kids nowadays are just plain rude to others. He acts out, because he can't control his emotions due to whatever disorder he has. You are right on about one thing, though, Tony! She should call the parents, but not because of the reason you said. She should call them and tell them to control THEIR children and teach them that bullying is not ok in anyway. Tony, you are a bully at it's worst. Get the heck off this page. You're the one that wants attention. If Colin's mom wanted to make it all about her then she would have made this page about herself and it would be her picture as the profile pic, not Colin's. She would tell everyone to send her cards, NOT Colin. She'd make it all about her, NOT Colin. It's Colin's picture that it everywhere, NOT hers. We know all about Colin, NOT her. Why don't you do all of us a favor and lock yourself up far far away from society and get fixed so you can't help make any babies. Get off this page, you're not welcome here at all, stupid prick (I have worse things to call you, but those are far from appropriate).
[isabel perez orozco] - I think she should have a live broadcast of him on his birthday.....!! The news.. Tv shows .. To see him see all the love and what his FRIENDs sent him.. And let it be known.. It's a privilege to join him on HIs special day
[jimmie jay] - Hi Colin, I have epilepsy so I know what its like to feel like you don't fit in sometimes. My advice to you is to never give up at anything and overlook things that bring you down. You will make friends soon so stay patient buddy, HAPPY B Day from my daughter and I!! G.R Michigan-
[shaddai oros] - You guys have to video tape his reaction & post it on this page! He's going to be thrilled :)
[rajat dua] - Please post the reaction of Colin when he get all of these things on his birthday! :)
[krysten reynolds] - I just have to say, you are doing everything right for your son. I know you didn't expect this and not at this magnitude but he is getting all the attention to show him exactly what you set out to: to make him feel special and loved. And that there are still many good people in the world. I have a feeling that this is going to completely change his outlook on life. Post lots of pictures and videos when he finds out and as he is showered with gifts and cards. Happy Birthday Colin!!
[deb slavent] - This is restoring my faith in mankind..
[lori bruns carpenter] - He is going to freak! I sure hope he loves it. Makes him feel warm on the inside, and understands life isn't just going on in your little "arena" there are so many people out there that are unique & different. He will make many friends as he grows up!
[tina jones] - The look on young Colin's face will be priceless, you as parent's have done a good thing for your son......xxxx
[sherri riddle] - This is incredible. I'm happy for him and you. Pls, don't lose sight though. When the hype dies down and things go back to "normal", you now have the challenge of making him realize that he's worthy, with or without all of this attention. Best wishes to you both on that journey as well. May God bless your family.
[chiara turner] - Posted our card to Colin today from perth Western Australia hope it arrives in time :)
[mariel bernstorf] - All you asked for was some 'likes' and look what people did! Restores my faith in humanity. A little:)
[joe schaub] - These are the stories that should be getting spread around Facebook. Stop the political stuff for a moment and see the good that is still in the hearts of people.
[marc fittante] - Faith in humanity restored
[dawn carroll cobb] - YOU HAVE to post pics of Colin when he sees all this
[vicki dodd] - He's going to be opening cards and gifts until he's 30! :-)
[fátima nieves] - You guys are wonderful and you have inspired a lot of people because of your love for your son. You have received a lot of messages and suggestions. May I dare offer one more? It will be a long time before Colin can open all of that mail. Why don't you share it with other special children in your area? I bet other children would enjoy opening the mail and knowing that the love that is being sent to Colin is the universal kind...
[felicia löfstedt] - The Swedish Newspaper!! This is amazing <3 I hope he"ll get the best birthday ever!! :) I can't wait to see his reaction :D
[tracey morton-wood] - Day 4 and you have a van full... think it's time to get a storage unit started. If you get that much every day... where are you going to put it?
