Colin Cunningham's birthday is coming up

RICHLAND (WKZO) -- A Richland boy told his mother not to plan a birthday party for him this year because he has no friends to invite. '

He has over a million now but doesn’t know it yet.

Colin Cunningham has a condition similar to Asperger’s and finds it difficult to make friends.

His mom Jennifer had an idea to drum up some virtual friends for the 10-year-old who is going on 11, by setting up a facebook page with a simple message. That he is lonely and needs encouragement.

She got an immediate response. She was amazed when at first, 200 people hit the Like button. The next day it doubled.

Then the media started doing stories and now two weeks later its up to 1.6-million likes.

She is trying to keep it a secret from the boy, until his birthday which is March 9th... so whatever you do, don’t tell Colin.
