RICHMOND, Va. — A news anchor at WTVR in Virginia is helping boost a young viewer’s spirits after she was being teased about wearing glasses.

Julie Bragg posted side-by-side photos of her and a third-grader named Marley wearing  similar glasses after someone at school reportedly told the young girl her eyewear was too big for her face.

“I always put a note in Marley’s lunch bag for school and when I was re-packing her bag yesterday morning, I saw a note she left me saying someone told me my glasses are too big and I DO NOT LIKE THEM,” Marley’s mother Jill told WTVR.

Bragg wrote in the post:

I need your help… This is gorgeous Marley. Someone at school told her that her new glasses are too big, and now she doesn’t like them. I like them, picked out pretty much the same pair. Can we get her some “likes” and comments to let her know she’s right in style? I think she looks incredible.

Her post has been liked more than 24,000 times as of Thursday afternoon.
