Yankees Tweet Support for 10-Year-Old Girl Who Shared Story

posted by CMS - 

Jenn Slater is the mother of Cassidy a 10-year-old girl who was seriously bullied at school and made a Facebook video to tell the world her story.

The New York Yankees saw the video and made their own video to respond to her! How sweet! 

They Yankees tweeted: Hey Cassidy - we saw the video you made and from all of us here at the New York Yankees, we want you to know that you are not alone. We have your back! Along with a video that had this message:

"Dear Cassidy. My name is CC Sabathia and I play baseball for the New York Yankees. My teammates and I wanted you to know that we care about you. We know sharing your story must have been difficult but you showed courage and strength and inspired us to reach out to you[.] We may be older than you, we may be taller than you, but we want you to know that we look up to you[.] You are not alone! Count the New York Yankees among your friends! You can sit next to us at lunch anytime!!! In fact, we are saving a seat for you at our lunch table in the clubhouse. Bullying is WRONG[.] We won't stand for it! No one should ever be made to feel bad about who they are[.] We need to care for each other[.] There are 25 of us on this team! And we all got your back!!!!"

As requested, everyone wanted me to repost... This is a video my daughter Cassidy posted orginally from her own Facebook page, her caption said " please everyone help share my story about being bullied not only for me but for everyone" Her story reached 22k views before the Scranton School Dirstict contacted Facebook and her facebook got shut down because she's not 13 and of age to have a facebooK. She was threatened by the principal to remove the video or he was going to report it and he was successful. But this does not stop here, I will be my daughters voice I will share her story and I hope others will share too, this Isn't about the shares or views or if it goes viral its about spreading awareness although seeing that smile on Cassidy's face each time the number of views and shares got larger that was everything. Shes upset she has to start all over but let's do this for her....please share her story let's put that smile back on her face!!!
