A 99-year-old Canadian war veteran wants one thing for his 100th birthday, and the internet is looking to make his dreams a reality.
Fred Arsenault, who served with the Cape Breton Highlanders during World War II, had his photo posted to Reddit, where it went viral. It was later posted by Mayor John Tory as well as NewsTalk 1010 AM’s Twitter.
“I’m a WW2 veteran about to turn 100 years old on March 6th, 2020 and would like to receive 100 birthday cards,” reads the sign.
Arsenault’s address is also included on the sign.
Twitter replies to Mayor Tory’s tweet show a number of people from across the globe who say they’ve already sent cards, including many from the Netherlands, where the post also went viral.
