Three weeks ago, 10-year-old Ashawnty Davis of Colorado killed herself after being a victim of bullying. And now the family is asking for the public’s help to raise money for her burial expenses.

Ashawnty, a fifth-grader at Sunrise Elementary School in Aurora, Colo., got into a fight away from school grounds, and it was uploaded to the app Music.ly. Ashawnty’s mother, Latoshia Harris, said that her daughter was confronting the bully when the fight occurred, and it became fodder on the app.

“My daughter came home two weeks later and hanged herself in the closet,” Harris said.

The family is now using GoFundMe to help with Ashawnty’s burial expenses. A funeral date has not been set yet.

She deserved all of the attention Keaton got and more.

It’s a shame the major difference is nobody stuck a camera in front of her face and recorded her tears.

We lost one because nobody knew but hopefully putting her to rest gives her family the chance to make peace.
