Loneliest Schoolboy: 10-year-old is the only student on island near Scotland

Imagine being the only child in your town.  A 10-year-old boy in the United Kingdom knows what it's like.

Aron Anderson lives on a small island off the coast of Scotland. The town's population is only 70 people and Aaron is the only school-age child there.  His best friends are his dog, some ducks and a flock of sheep.

A group on Reddit.com wants to make the holidays a less lonely time for the boy.   If you want to help, send a postcard or Christmas card to:

Mr. Aron Anderson
c/o Skerries School
Skerries

And help spread the word!
