My friend, (who's an unintentional Nerdfighter) has started this amazing project to reduce world suck in Victoria, particularly Melbourne. Our area has been devastated by so many youth suicides in 2011 and 2012 and my friend has decided to take action.
Jessica is getting together as many, amazing, people as she can to contribute to a youtube channel and Facebook group, with which people can post/upload personal experiences, feelings, thoughts, what ever they feel could help and with this channel we will send it to Ted Ballieu.
Jessica has already had contact with Ted Ballieu in the past but this isn't been taken as seriously as it should be. All I ask is that if you live in Melbourne or even if you don't and you want to contribute feel free. I'll put the links underneath, if you're interested or if you just want to take a look.
While at the moment this is only focusing on Melbourne, I think it's still a step towards decreasing the amount of suck there is and increasing the amount of hopeful people in the world.
We're also looking for ideas as to how we can get this project around, we want to get in contact with perhaps Beyond Blue and hopefully make a video that's effective enough to go around to schools. If you have any ideas or criticism please feel free to respond.

If you wish to get involved but don't want to post onto the group page, feel free to contact either Jessica Cummings or myself, Lizzie Saunders. :)
