Yes, Quinton Aaron!!

The Blind Side actor has put his notoriety from starring in the Oscar-nominated film alongside Sandra Bullock to good use with his very own anti-bullying organization.

Back in 2012, the 31-year-old set out to make a difference by forming the The Quinton Aaron Foundation to help raise awareness about the realities of bullying and to share his personal stories.

He told People:

"I've been bullied before. And I know how important it is to give hope to kids who are going through the same thing."

The actor teamed up with Justice co-star Eric Martinez to hold rallies at schools, churches, and workplaces around the country spreading their message of acceptance and tolerance to over 300,000 kids so far.

This is a life's mission for this dynamic duo as more than 160,000 kids stay home from school out of fear of being bullied. So sad.

Aaron expressed:

"We have to listen to what they're going through. And provide resources for them."

Martinez — who was also a victim of bullying — added:

"It happens daily in schools and workplaces all over the country. It shouldn't be ignored. The rate of students committing suicide and reaching out for help is alarming. A lot of times, they just need someone who will listen."

Even though the numbers are staggering, Q.A. says he will not give up on the mission:

"It's something that will always be important to me. Every kid needs to know that they're accepted and heard. That's why I'll keep doing this."

Go, go, go! We LOVES this!
