She said that if people donated their Primrose markers to Will, she would give them two other marker colors in return. The post was shared more than 1,000 times and hundreds of people messaged Haley, saying that they will send their markers and greeted her son with kind words. Crayola Canada also contacted Haley and said they will donate more markers to Will.
“What started as a little ask for my son has turned into a movement of supportive communities who have gone out of their way to make a difference in the life of our family,” Haley wrote in the Facebook post. “This is seriously one of the kindest Christmas gifts ever.”
