What started out as a simple mother’s request for a few birthday wishes for her 13-year-old son turned into a viral sensation overnight, ending in a party fit for any A-lister.
The story of #odinbirthday begins when a Canadian woman posted a message about her son’s birthday on Friday to a local Facebook group, asking for some support.
“Some of you have seen me post about my son, Odin,” Melissa Camus wrote. “His struggles with bullying, his difficulties with Aspergers. Well, today is his 13th birthday. And, unfortunately, not one kid rsvp’d to his birthday ‘hang out’ invite. :-(”
Odin’s mom asked if some group members could send him birthday wishes on his “schmancy new cell phone.”
Then things exploded: Friday afternoon the Toronto Raptors tweeted, “Happy 13th Birthday to our new friend Odin!”
