Votes and Endorsements – Votes Help

Saturday, April 12, 2014 – “This is a unique campaign which aims to eradicate limiting labels through the use of social media tools. The campaign began on facebook and youtube and now covers all social media and has many strands to offer support and validation to anyone who may feel marginalised. The Give ’em Hope Campaign is an inclusive and inspirational celebration of diversity; an online video initiative to encourage and uplift those who feel marginalised, isolated or limited by labels. We exist to bring hope to those who need it most and do so by sharing our stories. The campaign was founded by David E Watters in early 2011 and has grown, with the support of numerous international cheerleaders and proactive participants. This quiet, unassuming campaign has positively changed numerous lives across the globe.”

I do not know a lot of Campaign that are heartwarming and generous as they are. They help me find myself and understand sexuality and words that are unknown to me like transgender, transsexual, etc. I hope everyone who enters this campaign enjoys it as much as I do”

Monday, April 14, 2014 – “The Give ‘Em Hope Campaign does phenomenal work for marginalized populations. In today’s society, labels have power. They have the power to empower, but they also have the power to destroy. More often than not, it’s the negative side of labels that leads to tragic events like teen suicide and homelessness, and that is just not acceptable. To have a campaign in place to show these individuals that who they are is to be embraced and worthy of acceptance and acknowledgement means the possibility of saving lives. And as the great Mr. Milk said, “You gotta give them hope.” ”

Monday, April 14, 2014 – “I have been a member of Give ’em Hope ever since it started, and a lot of people on here had done nothing but supported me on my decisions, and have love and accepted me for who I am. Despite my autism, anxiety, and a long medical and mental health history, this campaign has helped me strive for the best in life.”

Monday, April 14, 2014 – “I really would like to help GIVE’EM HOPE. I have always like the word HOPE OR DREAMS.”

Monday, April 14, 2014 – “This campaign is well focused and should be supported by all. ”

Sunday, April 13, 2014 – “The main reason I am voting is that this campaign needs more people to be aware of it. From it’s early days on YouTube, the campaign has been wonderful in giving people reassurance and support from real people with real stories. It’s so precious for the individuals involved who have shared their stories, and a source of guidance and reassurance for others who feel they are alone. The tireless work of David and his associates and their bravery in continuing to offer emotional ballast in stormy times is indispensable and needs the recognition it deserves.”
