Four-year-old Noah Fisher wasn't exactly psyched about getting glasses. In fact, he burst into tears when he first saw himself in the newly purchased specs.
“I finally got him to tell me why he was crying," his mom, Lindsey, later told WLTX. "He said because everyone was going to laugh at him.” (Oh, Noah. We've totally been there.)
But that was when Lindsey Fisher had a small idea that would later prove to be kind of amazing: She created a Facebook page titled "Glasses for Noah" and asked people of all ages to submit photos of themselves wearing glasses. What resulted was something far beyond what she could have hoped.
In just weeks, "Glasses for Noah" has earned an impressive 33,000 fans, and its wall is littered with photos of proud glasses-wearing people from all walks of life. There are kids as young as 2, there are grandmas and grandpas and there are even a few dogs showing off their shades. With each photo posted, fans include a word of wisdom or a happy thought, reassuring Noah that even the cool kids can be four-eyed, too. (Plus, some girls dig guys with glasses; so there's that.)
According to mom Lindsey, little Noah's confidence has soared since the support started flooding in—and the good news is that the submissions just keep on coming.
