Josh Hutcherson has done something that has made us all fall in love with him again. Hutcherson, best known for his role a Peeta Mellark in the Hunger Games
movies, is showing his compassionate side as he backs a campaign
to help LGBTQ youth throughout the country.
This new campaign, known as Power On, will help to give LGBTQ youth living in rural areas or low-income housing a way to communicate with others in the community so they don't feel alone. The foundation will be collecting items like smartphones, old laptops, tablets and other items. These items will be refurbished by a company called human-I-T and given to foundation partners throughout the country.
Hutcherson has long been an advocate for the LGBTQ community, working with the NOH8 campaign and as a vocal supporter for his LGBTQ friends and fans. He has also donated one of his own computers to the program and urges others to do the same. He said:
I’m kicking off the Power On campaign by donating one of my old computers, and it’s awesome to know that it’ll be used to help a young person out there who, before this campaign, wasn’t able to get access to information and resources that could really help them. I’ve always respected the work that The Trevor Project does, and to have an opportunity for Straight But Not Narrow to collaborate with them on a campaign like Power On is exciting.
