Man Whose 101st Birthday Was Canceled Because Of Coronavirus Wants You To Smash That Like Button For Him Instead

A man who was planning to celebrate his 101st birthday this month unfortunately had to cancel his party due to the coronavirus outbreak. But with some help from a UN worker, Owen looks like he is getting to celebrate anyway—just remotely.

Owen, who is believed to be from the US, asked for 101,000 likes and comments on a photo of himself holding a whiteboard that says, “Hello, I am Owen. I am turning 101 on March 31st. “My party was canceled because of social distancing. Help me celebrate by getting 101k likes/comments.” The photo was then shared by UN worker Mohamad Safa on Twitter, where he asked folks from around the world to show some love to Owen on his birthday.

“His 101st birthday party was canceled because of the impact of the Coronavirus. Please share and comment to help us make his upcoming birthday special,” Safa said. “Please leave him a message here. Take 60 seconds and do it for Owen!”

People really responded, with more than 140k liking the photo and 12k birthday wishes.

Happy Birthday, Owen!
