Boy Recieves Over 7,000 Birthday Cards to mark his 15th birthday

 Boy Recieves Over seven Thousand Birthday Cards on his birthday

 A boy named Devon received thousands of birthday cards, gifts and messages from strangers around the world after his mother's online plea went viral. He broke his mothers heart when he made himself two birthday cards because he believed no one would be wishing him well for his 15th birthday.
The two cards Ollie had initially made for himself for his 15th birthday.

His mum, Karen Jones, 49 years, took to Facebook account to make a request help on a community page.
 She wrote, "my autistic son is 15 shortly ... he's just told me he loves opening cards to [the] extent he's made himself a couple.""We are a small family and he has no friends so gets very few."

 Her Facebook post received over 25,000 shares and almost 1,000 comments, mostly from well-wishers saying their cards were on the way to Ollie. Her plea also extended to Twitter, with numerous well-wishers using the hashtag #Cards4Ollie.

Although there is no final count, Karen Jones says she and Ollie have opened 7,000 cards so far -- and they still have a long way to go. And while Jones is elated with the many gifts she and Ollie have received from around the world, she told CNN, "gifts are not what it's about. It's about making us feel good, and others feel good." "I've received so many messages from other individuals and groups who feel that as a result of the events of the last few days, and the compassion it's triggered globally, the autistic community have hopefully been empowered," she added. Some well-wishers have sent messages from as far away as Brazil and Australia. Karen Jones, who had initially hoped for about 20 cards, said it may take a while to open them all. She urged everyone to "remember there are 'Ollies' everywhere." Her son ended the night of his birthday by sitting "in his friend's hot tub, taking photos of himself on his new selfie stick saying 'I'm famous', 'I'm famous'," she said.
