KALAMAZOO, Mich. (PIX11) — A little boy in Michigan told his mother that he had no one to invite to his birthday party.

Now, he has over a million new friends.

Colin told his mother he didn’t want a party because he had no one to invite. The 10-year-old said the other kids at his school don’t like him and he eats lunch alone everyday. His mother Jennifer says he was was diagnosed with issues similar to Asperger’s Syndrome, which causes him to act out in certain social situations.

She secretly started a Facebook page so friends could wish him happy birthday and it now has 1.1 million likes.

“Happy Birthday Colin, I hope you have a wonderful birthday and a great year,” one comment read. “I am so happy I heard about you, you remind me to keep trying through all my challenges! You are an amazing person.”

She plans to show it to him on his 11th birthday on March 9.
