Odin's 13th Birthday Was Almost Ruined, But His Mom Is Saving It
Description
Odin is a 13-year-old boy. He has Asperger's, struggles with making friends, and is bullied. Odin is turning 13 today (March 20th). He put out birthday party invites, and not one kid RSVPed.

So now his mom, Melissa, is taking him bowling instead, and hoping guests will show up to wish him a special day at this open bowling event at Lakeview Bowl in Peterborough tonight.

Melissa also wants people to text him birthday wishes to make him feel awesome. (See the number in the screengrab below.)

So let's give Odin a terrific birthday. Text him birthday wishes, and drop by Lakeview Bowl if you can.

Odin, happy birthday dude! You have the best mom in the world. See everything she's doing for him today in the below link

Oh Odin, how wonderful would this be to get the opportunity of a lifetime to meet Ellen DeGeneres?  I hope and pray you do get this opportunity and boy, would I LOVE to have the chance to meet her too as she is one of my idol's and not only that, I am originally from Southern California, and haven't had the opportunity to be back home in over ten years.  So if you get this opportunity, say hi to Ellen for me and make sure to visit my hometown of Huntington Beach, CA :)  Good luck Odin, you deserve this so much.

Odin's story both touched my heart and made me angry.  So nice to see social media being used for good.  This kid would be a great story for Ellen to have on her show.  Love to see it happen.

Sooo proud of our community!!!!!!!!!!! Kids feel rejection, are bullied and put down everyday. Odin's mom simply asked our small facebook group for help to remind her son he that he is special and deserving of being just like everyone else. Peterborough Rocks!!! I pray Odin will never forget his 13th Birthday and how awesome he really is!!!! #odinbirthday
Good luck Odin :)  and good job Mom!

Come on Ellen, invite Odin and his mom for a visit to your show.  This is a huge viral story, and i believe you support anti-bullying.  This would touch your Canadian audience and the love would spread across all borders!
