It Gets Better Project

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.  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.  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.  Savage and his partner took matters into their own hands and proved that you can make a difference.
