This just goes to show that EVERYONE and ANYONE can make a difference in the world.
Earlier this month, 12-year-old Sam Maden from Nashua, New Hampshire started an online petition to ask his favorite baseball team, the Boston Red Sox, to make an anti-bullying video on behalf of the LGBT community.
After collecting 9,000 signatures and sending it to the team, he's getting his request!
The MLB team is joining the San Francisco Giants and the Chicago Cubs by becoming the third team to produce a video on behalf of the "It Gets Better" campaign.
The team praised Sam's efforts to reach out and stand up against bullying, saying:
"We are proud of dedicated Red Sox fans like 12-year-old Sam Maden who have taken the courageous step of publicly standing up against bullying of LGBT youth."
Sam says he was inspired to start the project after his gay uncle, who was a die-hard Red Sox fan, passed away unexpectedly earlier this year.
Check out the video above to meet the boy responsible for encouraging the Boston Red Sox to make a difference, while he is interviewed alongside openly gay Texas Councilman Joel Burns, who made headlines after delivering a heartfelt speech assuring LGBT teens it gets better.
We're truly impressed by this boys actions, which prove change IS coming.
