Glasses For Noah: Heart-Melting Facebook Alert

Four-year-old Noah Fisher was heartbroken when he found out he had to wear glasses. Like millions of visually-challenged kids before him, he was sure people would laugh at him. Luckily, his mother Lindsey had an ingenious idea: let social media convince her toddler that he was far from alone in his bespectacled fate. She set up "Glasses For Noah," a Facebook page designed to provide friendly moral support for her son. "Our sweet 4-year old, Noah, just got glasses and is having a hard time adjusting. Let's show him just how cool glasses really are!" she wrote.
To encourage Noah, family and friends posted photos of themselves in glasses. Soon, word spread, the media caught on, and thousands of supporters from around the world joined the movement. As of today, the "Glasses For Noah" page has over 8,000 Likes — a number that could potentially double within hours. The best news? As his mom's recent uploads reveal, Noah now looks perfectly content — and totally adorable — in his glasses. (NY Daily News)
