The picture of little Ollie staring at a picture of a boy like him self in Target was postet by Ollie’s mother and went viral.
When two – year old Ollie was staring at the promotion poster, Ollie’s mother took a picture which she later postet on Facebook.
“Thank you Target! ??? Today Oliver stopped me dead in his tracks and turned back around to see this picture that he spotted! He just stared at it in awe! He recognized another boy like him, smiling and laughing on a display at Target. Oliver sees kids every day, but he never gets to see kids like him. This was amazing! I am so happy that other kids that pass through here with their parents, will see this! There is a lot of focus on representing diversity, but representing people with disabilities is just as important! ❤”
Later she added an Edit: “This post was shared so much that it made it to the family and the boy in the Target display. Thank you Colton in Massachusetts for making a difference!!”
In a later post she thanked for all the love the world had sendt to Ollie and their family. The post had been viewed millions of times, dozen news articles had been written and the family just shared pictures of them on “The Kelly Clarkson Show”.
It just showes how important this is, and we love how Ollie is raising diversity awareness in the cutest and most touching way. You are a boss Ollie!
