By Mark Pygas

Anyone who was bullied as a kid will know how lonely it can feel. So in an attempt to show his son that the world is a kind place, Chris Hope-Smith, from Leeds in the United Kingdom recently took to Twitter to ask his handful of followers if anyone knew a celebrity who might be able to send his son a birthday message. 

And things got out of hand quickly. Within a day, this tweet has acquired more than 14,000 retweets and 34,000 likes.
