Card(s) for Colin

I saw on Facebook a while back a story about a young
boy who has a disability that makes it hard for him 
in social situations.  He is turning 11 on March 9th. When his
Mom asked him if he would like to have a birthday party he said
there wasn't a point because he has no friends.  
No one, especially a child, should feel that way.
His Mom started a Facebook page called
Happy Birthday Colin 
Check it out when you get the chance.

I sat down last night to make him a birthday card and
ended up making seven. I was having so much fun so I just
kept making cards.
I'll take them to work today and have all the students fill them
with birthday wishes for Colin.
