Deeply affected by news that several lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) teens had taken their own lives due to bullying, Amelia Roskin-Frazee, 15, started The Make It Safe Project. The organization donates books about sexual orientation and gender expression to schools and youth homeless shelters throughout the U.S. and abroad. Amelia personally reads and selects the fiction and nonfiction books that go into each package of 10 volumes – and tailors each package to the needs of the particular school or shelter. Amelia has given more than 60,000 teens access to books.
