Hundreds Turn out to Celebrate the Birthday of a Boy They’ve Never Met

One mother’s social media experiment helped her home-schooled son make an army of new friends for his birthday.

What one mother thought would be a disaster turned out to be quite possibly the best birthday party she’ll ever see. Traci Eubank’s son, Camden, suffers from a speech impediment known as Apraxia, which makes it difficult for him to speak in high-pressure situations. Because of his condition, Camden is homeschooled and doesn’t have a lot of friends. When his tenth birthday rolled around, his mother was worried no one would show up to his party, so she tried something a little out of the box. She posted the party as an open event on Facebook, and much to everyone’s surprise, it went viral on Reddit. On the day of the party, the unique strategy paid off in a pretty incredible way.
