8-Year-Old Boy Writes Letter to Santa Asking to Help His Bullied Twin Sister

By  | 

Facebook (Karen Suffern)While most 8-year-old boys would probably ask Santa for the next trendy gadget or video game, Ryan Suffern's request is far more touching.

In a heartfelt letter, which went viral after his mother, Karen, posted a picture of the note on Facebook, the young boy selflessly asks for help for his bullied twin sister, Amber. He writes, "Dear Santa, my mom said to send you a Christmas list. I wanted a remote control car and helicopter, but I don't want that anymore. Kids at school are still picking on Amber and it's not fair because she doesn't do anything to them and it makes me mad. I prayed that they will stop, but God is busy and needs your help."

He continues, "Is it against the rules to give gifts early? Can you ask Big Time Rush to come to Amber's b-day party? It will make her so happy. If you can't get them to come, just get her everything she asks for."

Later, he notes to Santa, "My mom throw the best b-day parties. You can come if you want." OMG, we love him. Hear that, Big Time Rush (and St. Nick)? Think you guys should probably make a date with a pair of 8-year-olds come their 9th birthday. Just putting that out there.
