I don't know if this actually works but I'm going to try it, just hoping for the best and a little luck. Help a kid out

If you can’t quite read his sign, this is Collins’ well-written note:

“I am looking for a man named Jason, who lived in Syracuse, New York, in 1996. He went to the first K-rockathon … [and] met a woman named Diana Collins, I am the product of that night. I am not asking for anything. Just would like to meet my biological father.”

As of Sunday morning, his post has been shared more than 11,600 times. Facebook users have shared their support as well as kind words of encouragement in the comments section of the post.

Good luck from us too, Jette!
