To make her happy, he only wanted her to be able to meet her favorite band, Big Time RushGet your tissues ready, and read Ryan’s caring letter to Santa right here — and find out the happy ending of his efforts!

8-Year-Old’s Letter To Santa Asks To Stop Twin Sister’s Bullying

Ryan & Amber’s mom, Karen Suffern asked to her kids to write their letters to Santa early so she could gauge what they will be wanting for Christmas, but she was absolutely shocked with what her son asked for. In an act of selflessness, Ryan asked Santa to spare his sister of the suffering she felt when she was taunted at school.

On GMA, Karen explained that she did not know the extent of her daughter’s bullying until she read her son’s letter. Since she also struggles with her weight, she identifies with her daughter. “I try to build up my daughter’s self-esteem and tell her she is beautiful,” she said. “But people say hurtful things to me, because I also have a weight problem, and that hurts me. I can’t imagine what she goes through.”

Ryan Suffern’s Letter To Santa

Ryan wrote the most endearing letter to Santa:

Dear Santa,

My mom said to send you [our] Christmas list. I wanted a remot[e] [control] can and helicopter [sic] but I don’t want that any mor[e] kid[s] 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 [sic] and needs your help. It it against the rules to give gift[s] 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 but just get her everything she ask[s] for.

Thanks Santa.

Love Ryan

PS. My mom throw[s] the best B-Day partys [sic] you can come if you want.

Because of Ryan’s sweetness, Amber was able to meet her idols — the guys of Big Time Rush! The girl’s jaw dropped when she got to meet the cute guys of the band on the set of Good Morning America. She is also set to be a VIP guest at the group’s next concert. How exciting!

The kids’ school is also taking efforts to make sure Amber is not bullied anymore.
