A junior at West Bloomfield High School in Michigan is fighting bullying by tweeting compliments to his classmates and friends.

Jeremiah Anthony is a high school junior and creator of @westhighbros and the West High Bros Facebook page.

West High Bros is a social media effort started in October 2011.

“We just send compliments to people who are feeling bad a certain day or who have done something really good,” said Anthony.

“I built this up by complimenting my friends and then they told their friends. It started to get pretty popular. I believe that showing the goodness in people is very integral. They get cyberbullied because they are less than perfect. No one is perfect,” said Anthony.
