The boy was afraid to spend his birthday alone, but got a dream holiday. After all, he was congratulated by Ryan Reynolds himself
A student from Canada was afraid that no one would wish him a happy birthday, but he worried in vain. The boy’s parents talked about the fear of their child on the Web, and people flooded him with presents. And the biggest surprise came from Ryan Reynolds, because few people manage to get warm wishes from an idol.
Nine-year-old Damien Smith from Canada was worried that he would be left without gifts and birthday wishes, but thanks to the care of his parents and strangers from the Net, he received a surprise that one can only dream of. The boy’s mom and dad, knowing about their son’s fears, decided to ask for help on Facebook.
A month before Damien’s birthday, they created a special Damiens birthday project account, where they asked people to send postcards to the schoolboy. The idea worked with a bang: at the end of October, the family had a mountain of letters and boxes with gifts. The boy’s mother shared their photo on a page dedicated to Damien.
But the most incredible surprise came from Ryan Reynolds. Thanks to caring strangers storming his social networks, the actor found out that Damien is his fan, and sent the boy’s parents a video with his congratulations. The student’s mother explained that Deadpool’s video came a month before the boy’s birthday, but he asked to keep the gift a secret.
And on November 23, his birthday, Damien received more than a thousand congratulations, including cards, parcels and gifts from many countries of the world. But the highlight of the program was a video prepared by Ryan Reynolds. After seeing the message of his idol, Damien became emotional and hugged his mother. The parents also filmed the boy’s reaction to such a surprise and published the video on November 24.
