Even as a child, the artistically-minded Amanda Palmer was a little different — something that made her an easy target for classmates. As her musical career thrived, Palmer put the bullying she experienced in her childhood behind her. Until she stumbled upon the story of Amanda Todd, a teenager who committed suicide after experiencing years of bullying. 

Amanda Palmer was inspired to blog about Todd's story — and in doing so she created an anti-bullying community where victims and allies can support one another.
