You Are Not Useless video

Hi there everyone, it's my first time posting in this community, so please bear with me if I do something really stupid!

You might have heard by now via twitter or tumblr that I'm attempting to put together a Parafamily anti-suicide message dedicated to people such as Jamey Rodemeyer and in support of those suffering with the issue, both within the Paramore fan-base and beyond.

The idea for the video was inspired by the Paws Up Forever project ( and I'd love some of you to help out with it if you can.

There are three ways to help out:

If you have a video camera or webcam and would be willing to record a line of scripted dialogue for the main body of the video, please email me at with your name or username (if you'd like to be credited for your part) and any preferences you may have when it comes to your line length or section your line comes from (sections can be found at the bottom link) and I'll get back to you with your line as soon as I can.

If you don't have a video camera/webcam or aren't comfortable with recording yourself, but you have a camera and would be okay with it, then take a picture of yourself with "You Are Not Useless" written on the palm of your hand (Or you could have "You Are Not Useless" written on a sign or something like that if you feel more creative) and send it to me via either email or twitter (@parascots). It can be written in different languages, you can add something on... whatever you feel like, as long as it says "You Are Not Useless" somewhere in the picture.

If you don't have a video camera/webcam/camera or are not comfortable with either of the above, then you can write an inspiring message to the people who need it most and I'll include it at towards the end of the video. If you had to convince someone to carry on living, what would you tell them? Your message can be sent to me through email, twitter, or this thread. Anywhere, as long as you shout at me to read it, sometimes I miss these things. Sections can be found here. Ignore the deadline, as I'm moving it back for a week or two in order to allow everyone time to take part.

There's roughly 89 more parts left to fill, so any help (whether it be taking part or spreading the word) is greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions, please, feel free to ask.

A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to read this, it really does mean a lot xxx
