Tonight is the last night of Hannukah. As thousands of Jewish members of the It Gets Better Project celebrate, we're posting three videos from a celebrity, some gays and a Rabbi (no, this is not a joke). Is It Gets Better the next "Great Schlep?"

Yesterday, Senator Sherrod Brown (OH) came to the floor of the Senate to deliver his It Gets Better video and took the IGB pledge. Thank you, Senator, for amplifying the messages of the 6,000 people who have created videos to all your colleagues in Washington. Thanks for joining our movement.
Dan Savage appeared on The Colbert Report last night. At the end of the show, Stephen Colbert agreed to make an "It Gets Better" video and called on conservative pundits and elected GOP leaders to join the project to give hope to LGBT teens.
This week we saw Pixar's amazing It Gets Better video hit over 750,000 views in just days. In addition to the hundreds of other submissions this week, Artists Justin Bieber & Johnny Boy, OPM Director John Berry and the Gay Men's Chorus of DC rounded out the top five. Did any others stick out to you?
We all have much to be thankful for. In just over two months, over 6,000 It Gets Better videos have been posted, and a growing community of millions of people from around the world are watching these videos, and sharing them with friends and loved ones.
