TOOWOOMBA will #DoItForDolly.

A sea of blue will envelope friends and family as they remember beautiful teen Amy "Dolly" Jayne Everett whose suicide last week has triggered a national call to arms against relentless bullying.

The 14-year-old former face of the iconic Akubra has become the face of an anti- bullying movement. It's a positive glimmer from the tragedy that shocked and broke hearts in Australia.

More than 300 people bid Dolly goodbye in the Northern Territory.

A memorial service at Our Lady of Lourdes from 10am Saturday had originally been planned for family and close friends only.

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.

"We don't want another family to go through what we are going through and our vision is to establish a trust called Dolly's Dream," Dolly's dad Tick Everett said.

If you or anyone you know needs support, call Lifeline on 13 11 14, or Kids Helpline on 1800 55 1800.
