She started by asking the people of Foxboro, MA, where the Nickersons live, to send Danny birthday cards — lots of them. The community immediately rallied, placing print-outs of an article from the local paper around town publicizing the request.
Then, a Foxboro resident posted a photograph of the flyer on Reddit. "Saw this today around town. A little boy with a brain tumor only wants one thing for his birthday: letters. It takes $0.50 and 10 minutes, but I bet it would mean the world to this kid," Redditor Thechromaticscale wrote.
Danny's simple wish for letters soon spiraled into a groundswell Reddit movement. A public Google Docs spreadsheet was created to track the gifts being sent. One article about Danny mentions that he would love a Super Mario LEGO set, so Redditors are trying to make that happen.
If you'd like to send a card or gift to Danny, he has a P.O. Box at the Foxboro post office. His mother gave him a key, and says he was so excited to open it. Please excuse us while we venture off in search of tissues and stamps. (Happy Place)
Here's that address:
P.O. Box 212
