Show Us Your Specs! Facebook Helps Four-Year-Old Boy Feel Happy About His Glasses

Get ready for one of the cutest stories you’ll ever hear…

A new look can be an adjustment. Something four-year-old Noah found when he was told he needed glasses. So his mum set up a Facebook group to show him just how cool specs are – but even she wasn’t prepared for the overwhelming result.

The group Glasses for Noah now has over 1,700 fans and counting, as people flood it with photos of them in glasses to reassure Noah. From teenagers and toddlers to dogs, babies and even a racing driver, everyone’s wanted to show the pre-schooler how much they love their specs.

‘I said, “Put your glasses on,” and he just broke into tears,’ Noah's mom, Lindsey Fisher, told USA Today.

‘It was the saddest thing. It just broke my heart. And I finally got him to tell me why he was crying and he said because everyone was going to laugh at him.

‘It was very humbling to see how the community took time out of their day to post a picture of themselves for a little boy that half of them don't even know,’ she added.

Sweetest. Story. Ever.
