ICANIWILL uses influential figures to raise awareness and strengthen the mission against bullying, for youth suicide prevention. We create entertaining videos that capture our youth’s attention, that are packaged together as an episode on ICANIWILLTV, where we star children (who have been severely bullied due to their special needs) with celebrities and influencers in entertaining circumstances to promote inclusion.
We leverage the influence of celebrities and big social media influencers - CHECK OUT THE ICANIWILLTV EPISODES
We take the episode and show it in front of the child’s entire school, to change the light in which the peers see that child, and all children with special needs. We leverage the influencers’ reach to make the episode go viral, to promote inclusion and send an anti-bullying message across Australia. #ICANIWILLbetheexample is a mantra adults and influencers’ should live by, and is about to launch as a campaign for school children. By doing acts of kindness on the playground and sharing them, they have the opportunity to star in an upcoming episode. ICANIWILL #TAKECONTROL
We are losing the battle.
Suicide in Australia is now the most common cause of death in children and adolescents, with suicide rates being the highest they have been in 10 years. In the past year alone, there have been over 400 youth suicides, and 80% were due to bullying. Those with special needs are 3-4 times more likely to be bullied, with 67% reporting being bullied on a weekly basis.
We are leaving the battle of overcoming bullying to authority figures, despite research showing that our youth do not relate to them, nor do they want to talk to them about social issues. We need those non-authority figures that children look up to, to #BETHEEXAMPLE.

As a non-authoritative figure and mentor, Conan has continued to change the lives of children.
Our youth don't want their principals, teachers or parents fighting their battles, and bullies don't respect authority figures. By representing a non-authoritive figure, Conan along with his team, find it easier to get through to our youth as they represent people the kids respect, look up to, and aspire to be.
