      It's simply about letting another human being know that life is MORE than the current circumstances. Cowboys-you can take the time to do this BECAUSE you value joy, inspiration, the fighting spirit and determination. YOU CAN TAKE THE TIME.

      The Dallas Cowboys are sports heroes and role models for thousands of young men (and women) who might just change their thinking about bullying others IF someone they admire takes a stand. Take a stand.

      Though I think anything that adds info about the background of the project helps.

      How about -

      Dan Savage started the It Gets Better Project after a rash of teen suicides by LGBT youth and those who were perceived to be gay, after the youth were bullied and taunted by their peers. His mission? To provide hope to those who suffer bullying for their sexual orientation or misconceptions thereof.

      After several incidents revealing rampant homophobia in sports, more than 6,500 fans, and four candidates for San Francisco mayor, signed a Change.org petition started by baseball fan Sean Chapin, asking the San Francisco Giants to make an “It Gets Better” video against anti-gay bullying.

      Now the Giants have become the first pro men's sports team -- in the four major American sports -- to make an “It Gets Better” video.

      As America's team, I believe the Dallas Cowboys would be a much more effective voice to combat the discrimination and bigotry faced by LGBT youth across America. To that end, we're asking your organization to make a video and help make a difference.
