A distressing video of a nine-year-old crying and saying that he wants to die has gone viral. Quaden, 9, was born with Achondroplasia, a form of Dwarfism. His mother, Yarraka Bayles, decided to share the video online to raise awareness about the effects of bullying.

The video, which has so far received over 10 million views, attracted thousands of positive comments. Others have set out to do something kind for the young boy, as well as others suffering from bullying.

“I’m setting up this GoFundMe to let Quaden know that bullying will not be tolerated and that he is a wonderful human being who deserves joy. I want to fly Quaden and his mother to America, get them a nice hotel and bring them to Disneyland,” he writes in a GoFundMe campaign.   (Currently the campaign is almost at $200,000)
