Bullying has always been an issue in schools, but it seems to have become much more rampant in recent years. Despite all of the campaigns against bullying and the best efforts of teachers and administrators, some kids just refuse to stop.
One little girl was getting bullied at school by some of her classmates. When her 12-year-old sister Ava found out about it, she decided to take matters into her own hands, and her solution is brilliant!
The tween created an invitation on bright pink paper. On the outside, it said, “You’re invited!”
The idea was to make these girls think they were being invited to a party or a slumber party by one of the cool, older girls at school, but when they opened up the card they were in for a rude awakening.
“You are officially invited to stop being jerks to my sister!” Ava wrote.
Then she added in the details that would usually be included in an invitation.
When: Right now!!

What to bring: Bring your nasty attitude and throw it right in the trash can!
Why: You guessed it folks, you’re being jerks!
She even included a couple of ways to reply:
“RSVP: Ava at (859)-BYE-JERK or Ava@kindlyfreakingstop.com”
“If you can’t make it, don’t worry, you are welcome to come to my angry and emotional 7th grader wrath instead!” she added.
On the back of the card, Ava wrote out the word “stop” in 20 different languages, “cause English isn’t enough 4 you!”
This is the kind of protective older sister we all need! She is not about to sit back and watch her younger sister be a punching bag for insecure bullies.
The girls’ babysitter, Daisy, found the card while she was watching them and posted it on Twitter where it has gone on to receive over 44,000 likes and 25,000 retweets.
It’s clear Ava’s anti-bullying message has struck a chord. We hope bullies everywhere will take note!
Did you love Ava’s “invitation” as much as we did? Then share it!
