Justice for AvaLynn
AvaLynn was badly injured in an incident at her elementary school in Pascagoula, Mississippi.
We are asking for prayers and assistance for AvaLynn and her family. She will need help with her medical needs and travel expenses, etc.
Thank you all for your prayers and any help that you can provide.

This little angel was done wrong by the student and the school. I hope she recovers 100% and goes on to be so seccessful in life. Shame on the school and child that beat her. #Karma
Oh and her injuries are in no way consistent with falling down.
This is horrific. The school and the parents of the child /children who beat up this little girl should be sued. Kids who think it's ok to beat up people are not raised properly. The parents should be investigated. Kids on the playground should be supervised especially in the shitty world we live in today, and they were not!
There's no way the damages she incurred to her face was a result of a school yard accident. Hogwash!!!!! The district is lying. That little girl was beat up. #CoverUp
Is she alright?
How is the child doing now? You should sue the school district for negligence of your child!
Lacey, please turn your medical bills in to the school district to pay. It is THEIR responsibility, not yours, when a child is injured on school property. I did not know this until after my son was injured at school and paid for it myself when he had a broken arm and had to have surgery on it. I found out well after the fact,, I could have turned it in and made the school pay for it. If they refuse, lawyer up! If the child was injured due to lack of supervision by another student, she may be entitled to a settlement for pain and suffering as well. They have a duty to keep our children safe. Accidents happen, but neglect is a different story. If this had happened at home child services would have you up on charges of neglect!
http://cityofpascagoula.com/police-department The Pascagoula Police Department has completed its investigation into the playground incident in which a five year-old girl was injured at Arlington Elementary School on August 26, 2014. The original report filed by the mother on August 28, 2014 alleges that her daughter had been kicked in the face by another kindergarten student. An assault on one 5 year-old by another 5 year-old is not considered a criminal act under Mississippi Law and therefore does not fall under the jurisdiction of the police department. However, over the weekend the police department opened a Welfare Concern investigation into the matter. Detectives interviewed the child’s family, her Pediatrician, school employees, and witnesses to the playground incident. Her medical records were reviewed and the Department of Human Services also became involved. It has been determined that the child was injured in a playground accident and that no criminal activity occurred. The Pascagoula Police Department has closed its criminal investigation into the incident
Since this issue happened over a week ago I see in recent pictures that the poor baby is healing but that doesn't reduce the fact that a 5 year old was let out on a playground without supervision???? What if this little girl went missing because she was kidnapped off the playground while there was no supervision??? What then? The injuries to this girls face were horrific and were done by someone and the police should be trying to find out who did it and follow through instead of closing the case. I would be furious with the school and the police and I would not rest until I got justice. You can bet your life your would hear me ROAR from coast to coast. This could happen again if someone isn't stopped. Stop complaining about this mom getting a pittance of money to cover costs like medicine and maybe even counseling. She is going to need as much help as she can get. Haters go somewhere else and complain.
LOL at any of you that go by what snopes has to say. Snopes is a two man operation a husband and wife team. And have been wrong about so much crap it isn't funny. And lol at all the people getting butthurt because other people want to donate to this girls cause, grow up.
What's the latest for Ava Lynn? Have you found legal representation? I believe this is negligence-children should never be left unattended on the playground. That is not an acceptable excuse! How is the baby healing?
T is outrageous. Kids are suppose to be supervised. Good luck. I have my own fundraiser and I apologize but I am going to post it here. God bless your little girl. http://gfwd.at/1zOcHyR
School will not call ambulance or police. To help keep your child or children safe at their school, be visible. Eat lunch once a week with your child. Volunteer at their school. Chaperone on field trips. What happened to AvaLynn is despicable but the school will not do anything to the perpetrator even if they knew who it was.
and why did the school not call the ambulance first, then the parent this child required immediate medical attention... I can't believe people could ever even have a negative thing to say about this mother or her child... how ignorant
I am very troubled by what has happened to you... I live in gulfport, ms and I don't know when or where but I know I have seen your beautiful little girl somewhere before... I would never forget that beautiful girl and her fiery red hair... I have a 3 year old starting head start in 4 days and I am terrified to let her go because of what happened to poor little AvaLynn... I am also writing the school and the news in hopes somehow you can get justice for your daughter and they will have more security and supervision for our kids when we cannot be there to do it ourselves... my heart goes out to you and your family
I am glad you reached your goal. I'm so sorry for what happened to yourbeautiful daughter and I hope she's feeling better now . She looks so small.....was this an older child that did this? I can not see another small child doing damage to this extent. I hope you get answers and whoever is responsible pays the consequences. If a child did this then that child needs some help. My thoughts and prayer for you, your daughter and your family.
Prays go out to you and your beautiful daughter I hope she is feeling better.. I hurt for her and hope you get to the bottom of this matter ..this is a horrible horrible thing that took place.. I have your back.. Sending love and light in Jesus name Amen
JohnJr Glasgow he is correct.He is just sharing the info from the local media here.Calling people racist,inbred,etc for sharing the news is ignorant on your part.For you to call anyone you disagree with 'white trash backwater KKK lovers in Mississippi need to stop with all this hatred no matter the subject, place, or time. I long for the day when your kind are bred out of the gene pool. ' makes you the hater,not the ones sharing the news. I haven't seen anyone call the child or her mother any racial slurs or names. DHS is investigating.Due to the ages of the children involved it cannot be a criminal investigation. I don't understand why when someone is asks a question they get called a racist.
