Biography

Buddy Project was created by 17-year-old Gabby Frost in April 2013 when she was just 15. The goal of Buddy Project is to prevent suicide, self-harm, & eating disorders by pairing people as buddies based on shared interests. Buddy Project also aims to encourage those with mental illnesses to seek professional help if they have not already. Frost created Buddy Project due to knowing many people locally and online that have some type of mental illness. Frost was also inspired from singer/actress Demi Lovato.

How do you or your organization use social media? What makes your use unique?

Buddy Project tweets text or pictures that give hope to those going through mental illness, self harm, or addiction; as well as tweets that inspire, motivate, or just raise awareness for mental health. Buddy Project also uses social media to pair people as buddies so that everyone can have someone to be their friend.
