'Dolly' Everett memorial: Family make emotional plea as bullied teen remembered

'Dolly' Everett memorial: Family make emotional plea as bullied teen remembered

In 2016, The Sun Online launched its Block The Bullying Campaign with the NSPCC in a bid to stamp out the sharing of vile videos showing children being attacked.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull yesterday released a statement expressing his heartbreak for the Everett family.

"Dolly chose to end her life last week due to bullying".

Former child model Amy Jayne Everett, also known as "Dolly", committed suicide after being targeted by cyber bullies, according to her parents.

But the community has been urged to wear any shade of blue and show their support for the Everett family's wish that no other parent, friend or sibling lose a loved one through suicide and bullying.

"I do not want my daughter or any other to become the next Dolly", Katrina wrote in the change.org petition, which has already received more than 38,000 signatures.

"From pain and loss, we must renew our commitment to say no to bullying", Turnbull wrote in a Facebook comment.

Dolly's parents expressed gratitude for the "overwhelming response" they received to their grief and asked for time to celebrate the life of their attractive daughter. She was on vacation from her private boarding school and had once written a note saying, "Stand up, speak even if your voice shakes".

"This powerful message tells the dark, scary place our handsome angel had travelled to", the family said.

"We have people come in who don't even have family and if they didn't have a hair salon to go to I sometimes wonder who would they talk to".

Mexico will never pay for Trump wall - economy minister
A party's withdrawal takes effect six months after it provides written notice to the other member countries - Canada and Mexico . Mexico has threatened to withdraw from the negotiations if the US invokes the provision.

Dolly's death has sparked both sadness and outrage among many families, including those from rural and regional Australia. The tragic news travelled quickly via social media from the remote and sparsely populated cattle country of Australia's rugged far north.

The devastated father challenged the bullies to come to their daughter's farewell service as well.

He says, he wanted them to "witness the complete devastation" they created.

The family has asked mourners to donate to "Dolly's Dream" a trust set up in their daughter's honour, in lieu of flowers today.

The father of a teenager who starred in advertisements for a well-known Australian hat brand and killed herself after being bullied online has vowed her life "will not be wasted" as a campaign against cyber bullying gains traction.
