Recently Alex wrote into us to share a heartwarming story of how she changed her story, with help from Once Upon A Time actress Lana Parrilla. – Founder/CEO Dana Jacoviello


Hello Bullies Keep Out!! Love your organization, and I think you guys are awesome. Here is my story! Lana Parrilla changed my life, but more important she saved it. A few years ago I was in a very dark time in my life. It was my birthday, and I didn’t want to be here anymore. That night I wrote goodbye letters to people who I thought would actually care if I was gone, but something told me not to…something told me to wait. The very next morning I woke up to an Instagram post from Lana, and it was a picture of her feet with a feather and Lola’s paws and it said “Feather of Hope we are where we are meant to be #evilregals”. That’s when I knew someone cared. Lana cared! I went over a year and a half wanting to tell her my story, and I was able to this past year in Chicago. If you look up her panel on YouTube, go to around 17:00, and then I start speaking. She gave me the biggest hug ever, and it was the most magical moment of my life. So blessed for this fandom and this wonderful human being, because I have made the most amazing friends. I am forever thankful to Lana for saving my life! Sorry this Alex
