WILMINGTON, N.C. – When eight year old Ryan sent his letter to Santa asking him to help his twin sister Amber who was being bullied at school, he received his answer thanks to a Harlem Globetrotter. Ryan’s Mom posted the letter on Facebook where it received very emotional responses. When Ant Atkinson a seven year Globetrotter from Wilson, N.C. heard about Ryan’s letter, he knew he wanted to do something to help. Ant visited the twins’ school, Rocky Mount Prep, with his dynamic 30 minute presentation aimed at putting a stop to bullying.
The twins’ Mom says that the school acted fast after hearing about Ryan’s letter and the bullying. She says that Amber doesn’t cry before school anymore now that the bullying has stopped.
