An eight-year-old boy from Florida is doing all he can to help his sister who is bullied at school.

Amber is an eight-year-old girl who loves to play with her friends.  She also gets picked on because of her weight.

She’s hurt so much by it that she reportedly told her mother “she wished she wasn’t around anymore,” according to CNN.

Her twin brother, Ryan, did the only thing he knew to do that might help his sister.  He prayed.

And he wrote to Santa.

“I prayed that they will stop but God is busy and needs your help,” the letter said.  He goes on to ask Santa to please give his sister everything she asked for on her birthday.

“My mom throw(s) the best B-day parties,” Ryan’s letter said.  “You can come if you want.”

Dear Santa,

My mom said to send you a Christmas list. I wanted a remote control car and helicopter but I do not want that anymore. Kids at school are still picking on Amber and it is not fair because she does not do anything to them and it makes me mad. I prayed they would stop, but God is busy and I need your help. Is it against the rules to give up gifts early? Can you ask Big Time Rush to come to Amber’s birthday party? It will make her so happy. If you do not get them to come that is fine, just get her everything she asked for.

Thanks Santa,

Love Ryan

PS- My mom throws the best birthday parties. You can come if you want.
