The Internet can be a cruel place, but when a young girl named Emily used social media to open up about being bullied, the response proved the Internet can also be a source of support. The BULLY Project, a social action campaign inspired by the documentary filmBully, partnered with the Ad Council to create an anti-bullying ad featuring Emily and her mom. The new ad revisits Emily's first collaboration with The BULLY Project in 2014, in which she shared a photo of herself holding a sign that read:

"I got bullied for wearing glasses! Share if your (sic) against bullying!"

The photo has since garnered more than 4 million shares on The BULLY Project Facebook page.


Commenters supported Emily by posting pictures of themselves of other family members wearing glasses.
"Emily, My daughter wears glasses and she is beautiful! So are you!! Don't you ever forget that!" one commenter wrote.  According to a 2014 report from the CDC, 28 percent of 12- to 18-year-olds reported being bullied at school in 2011. But the large amount of support on Facebook for Emily proves that many feel connected to the fight against bullying. 
Good work, Emily!
