The statement you may tailor to your own words may include such comments as: 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.

Tuesday, April 15, 2014 – “I joined this group when it first began and have found it’s members to be really caring people, who will do whatever they can to help those who need help and search for and bring back whatever information they can find to help. (For more info on why I’m voting for this group, read David’s explanation of the group, below.) As interesting as some of the groups are, I find none of them to be as helpful as this one.”
Tuesday, April 15, 2014 – “I am voting because of the outstanding service that this organization contributes to the world as a whole.It would be a travesty if they did not get this recognition that they truly merit. ”
Tuesday, April 15, 2014 – “This project is very inspirational to LGBT. The mass media don’t show enough positive role models, especially LGBT. It was therefore very apt and necessary that someone should go all out to film and collect the stories of those who have stood up for their right to love who they want in the face of adversity. The stories provide solace and identification to the LGBT who are still struggling with their sexuality and/or with the oppression around them.”
Tuesday, April 15, 2014 – “This is such a valuable organisation which is making a real difference both online and in the community. The resources online are powerful and save lives. Everyone needs a little hope and David Watters reaches out to some of those most isolated .”
