Recently, a tragedy struck in Colorado after around 10-year-old girl killed herself. Ashawnty Davis tragically took her own life due to bullying.

"The fifth-grader was involved in an after-school fight at Sunrise Elementary School in October after she tried to confront her bully," according to reports. "The fight was videotaped and someone uploaded it to the Musical.ly app. The video apparently devastated Ashawnty, and she was bullied even more after it was posted."

A few weeks after the incident, Ashawnty tried to commit suicide. After her attempt, she spent nearly two weeks in the hospital while doctors tried to save her.

Sadly, they were unsuccessful. Now, the family is making a desperate plea for help with paying for her funeral costs. They have even started a GoFundMe page.

At this time, the page has raised over $43,000. Please continue praying for this family after they have endured a tremendous tragedy.
