Boy with Autism Receives Countless Birthday Cards After Mom's Facebook Request

February 11, 2014



Logan Pearson, a non-verbal boy with autism from Andover, Massachusetts, has gone 11 years without people celebrating his birthday. Catherine Pearson, Logan's mom posted a Facebook status on January 22nd to make sure her son's 12th birthday would be one to remember.

"I want to CELEBRATE him and ENJOY his day on 2/24/14! Get your small groups/friends, students, FB friends involved. Feel free to share this," wrote Catherine. 

The message has since gone viral on social media. Now, almost 3 weeks later, Catherine has been shocked by the response; hundreds of birthday cards for Logan from across the country. She's even received them from places as far away as England and Germany. 

This outpouring of support brought great happiness to the Pearson family as they celebrate Logan's birthday.
