Project Believe in Me is a youth-led anti-bullying initiative whose mission is to end bully-related suicide. This initiative began in response to an increasing number of teens dying by suicide because of the bullying they experienced. Project Believe in Me invites those who have overcome bullying to write letters of hope and encouragement to those who are currently being bullied. Also, those of you reading this who are being bullied, check out the facebook page in order read letters that have been submitted. Through this process of written word, change can happen!

You can listen to him opening up about that experience and also watch his live Vh1 performance of the song “I Won’t Give Up” by clicking on the following link from To Write Love on Her Arm’s website:
