FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – New England Revolution fans are encouraged to show compassion and support for 6-year-old Foxborough resident Danny Nickerson by bringing birthday cards for him to Saturday’s Revs match against the Columbus Crew at Gillette Stadium at 7:30 p.m.

Danny’s wish has gone viral worldwide, with people from all over the world sending him cards, including celebrities and athletes, and his story garnering attention all over the world.
Saturday, birthday cards for Danny will be collected in the New England Revolution Charitable Foundation Drive Series bins, located in the NRG Plaza and Bank of America Gates at Gillette Stadium.
