A boy who lives in a bubble wants to ask all of you's a favor: wear yellow on Friday March 27. Why? Because according to the boy -- Seth Lane, a 5-year-old in Corby, England -- it's his favorite color, and this show of support will give him strength before his next bone marrow transplant.

Seth suffers from a condition called severe combined immunodeficiency, which means he has to live in a sterile germ-free environment (hence the bubble). To drum up some support for his upcoming operation, his dad shot a video of him with his plea, printed on yellow note cards:

It's pretty simple really: On the big day, all this little boy asks is that you wear something yellow, then post a photo of yourself on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #wearyellowforseth. From there, his parents will put these photos up in his room.
