It Gets Better

Millions of people are bullied both in person and online, everyday. Many are able to shrug it off and move on, but many more (especially young people) find themselves at a loss as to how to cope and and up taking their own lives.

This past fall saw such a huge rise in such suicides, that we felt moved to do something and we added The Trevor Project, a non-profit 24 hour suicide prevention hotline for LGBT and questioning youth, to our list of beneficiaries. We were happy to make our first donation to them after of production of "It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play," this past December.

We also recently produced our own "It Gets Better" video, featuring JTMF members, supporters and actors who spent an afternoon this past February, once again donating their time to our cause. Please help make that time worthwhile and donate to The Trevor Project at www.thetrevorproject.org. or visit www.jtmf.org and donate to help us help the organizations that are dear to us.

Here's the JTMF "It Gets Better" video. Please feel free to share it with anyone you think might need to hear its message:

If you or someone you know is considering suicide because of bullying, please call The Tevor Project toll free at 866-488-7386. It really does get better.
