I love how you quote Dr. Suess in each chapter. I should do a video when I can. I've seen a few, they're inspirational.

I just want to say that I love what the two of you have done with these stories. They gave me goosebumps all over, i.e. these stories were very moving. Keep up the awesome work!

It astounds me how you capture these characters voices. But what's even better, what you do and what others who can reach a broader audience COULD do, is the beautiful words that you give them to speak. As I said earlier, at the end of The Trevor Project story on Chapsticklez's page, this story has been a gift. And who would ever believe that the "video" that moved me the most would belong to Crowe! Now that takes talent. You're badass, ladies. Keep it up;)

Funny. I'm a professional activist, the kind of person who is supposed to give out these messages, not need to take them in... but sometimes, it gets hard. I woke up to some particularly obnoxious bile in my inbox this morning, and maybe it's because I'm on vacation and my defenses are down, but it hurt. Any other day, maybe I would have thought this was a bit repetitive, or maybe I'd have skipped it because "I do this for a living, I don't need a PSA" - but I'll tell you that today, reading those affirmations over and over again... it helped. I wasn't hopeless, but there's something just a little bit special about hearing Maura, Jane and the rest handing out hope. Thanks.

Interesting take on the subject and leading up to what I'm sure is going to be a tear jerker story. What impressed me most about this story besides being well written and not overly emotional while still delivering a huge emotional punch is the inclusion of Crowe. Very nicely done.

This was truly a beautiful story, with such an important message.

Awesome I loved all of these, as well as the whole concept in general. :D

These capture the voices of the characters nicely. Adding the director's voice gives each spot an extra dimension.

Korsak makes a great point about talking to someone else if the first person (or people) is not helpful.

I had to smile at "Don't call me Janie" and Frankie talking about talking to Angela.

I expected Maura to be the final speaker (and loved her unpacking the Seuss), but you surprised me with a different choice, but in a way that stayed very much in character.

Nicely done!
