'Glasses For Noah' Facebook Page Shows A 4-Year-Old That His Glasses Are Cool After All

Posted: Updated:

Four-year-old Noah Fisher loves superheroes, but he didn't feel like one in his new glasses.

Mom Lindsey Fisher told USA Today that when she told Noah to put his glasses on, he started crying. "I finally got him to tell me while he was crying and he said people would laugh at him," the South Carolina mom said.

But Linsdey knew she could show him that glasses were cool. She sought help from a community others have turned to for social back-up before: Facebook.

"Our sweet 4-year old, Noah, just got glasses and is having a hard time adjusting. Let's show him just how cool glasses really are!" she wrote in the About section on a Facebook page she created called "Glasses for Noah". And show him people did. According to ABC News, the page quickly gained likes and now has over 30,000 fans. Photos of people wearing glasses and warm messages haven't stopped pouring in.

Even dogs showed their support!

Noah and his family went on the TODAY show and shared some of his favorite photos, including this one of the Hulk:

Although Mom was the mastermind behind the online glasses rally, she was beside herself seeing how many people were giving Noah confidence.

"It was very humbling to see how the community took time out of their day to post a picture of themselves for a little boy that half of them don't even know," she told USA Today.

As for Noah, he is starting to warm up to his glasses. Thanks to his mom -- and a little help from her (Facebook) friends.
