If you haven’t already heard about the “It Gets Better Project,” than it’s possible you might just be living under a rock. “In September 2010, columnist and author Dan Savage created a YouTube video with his parner Terry to inspire young people facing harassment. Â In response to a number of students taking their own lives after being bullied in school, they wanted to create a personal way for supporters everywhere to tell LGBT youth that, yes it does indeed get better.”
A mere 2 months later, the “It Gets Better Project,” has turned into a worldwide movement, inspiring 10,000 user-created videos viewed over 35 million times. Â It has received submissions from celebrities, organizations, activists, politicians, and media personalities including the President of the United States.
This is one of those causes that cannot be ignored. Â Savage and his partner took matters into their own hands and proved that you can make a difference.
