If anyone wants to do a good deed...

Post by scaredymouse on Sat Aug 13, 2016 12:38 pm

My friend wanted to throw a little bday party for her son and she asked for the names of some friends to invite... and he said he didn't have any.  He's on the autism spectrum, so he has a really hard time fitting in and we all know how cruel kids can be.  So, his mom started a facebook group where families can request birthday cards for their autistic kids, who don't have friends.

Anywho, if anyone feels like doing a good deed, you can send a birthday card to this little fella.  Here's what she posted in the facebook group:

The little guy will be turning 9 on 8/29. He loves Pokemon and Minecraft!!
Send cards to:
Filip Warzecha
100 Orndorf Drive
#1180
Brighton, MI 48116
(This is a PO box with a street address, please write address exactly as shown above or it might get returned)

I went out and got him a card today.  I happen to know he also likes minions and stickers, which is what I got him.  But just a plain old card would be true gift to him and his family.

Also, here is a link to the group if you are interested.  As more people join, there will be more children in need of some smiles on their birthday.  Or if you know a child with autism that could use some birthday joy, you can post an address (P.O. box) and ask for cards  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1145149865556561/

Aww, I'll definitely send him a card. I have high-functioning autism myself. Thankfully I've been blessed enough to have sufficient social skills to do well for myself in terms of making friends and dating nowadays, which isn't the case for many on the spectrum, but I struggled when I was younger and I know how kids can be.

I'll definitely send him a card once I can run out and get one! I'll need to wait for my next paycheck to come in, though. I had to buy a new phone since someone stole my old one, and between that and Sarah's vet appointment I'm rather strapped for cash.

Aaw this really broke my heart Sad it can be so hard being a kid. That's such a lovely idea for a facebook group though.

It's hard enough being a kid with any additional hassles. I'll have to hunt up a Minecraft card for him.

Me too. My 2 granddaughters are autistic, and also my great grandson. I will definitely send a card, with a little something in it.

Alright, paycheck is in. I'll be heading to Target later today. I'll get him a card and probably a gift too.

Aww what a great a idea, My brother has Asperger's syndrome (high functioning autism) and he went through a quite a bit when he was younger. I was a bit to young to understand all of it.

Scaredy, have you heard from your friend? Did Filip receive a boatload of cards?

Yes, I did hear, and yes he did! He really liked it. I mean who doesn't! I'm old and I still get super excited when i get cards in the mail Smile

Here is her quote: "Hello Friends! Cards and gifts have started coming in for Filip. Thank you to everyone! I cannot explain in words his excitement when opening them!"

Also "a friend" gave Filip money, which he really liked, lol.

That's great news! So glad her idea paid off for Filip. It was fun to browse kids birthday cards -- at least I was able to recognize about 90% of the superheroes, cartoon and video game characters that were the focus of most of them; I ended up sending him a dinosaur-themed card 'cause, what the heck, I volunteer at a dinosaur-heavy museum!
