One of the most important things we can do in life is to “be there” for others. When times are tough, those who show up for us mean more than our hearts can express. This video captures one of those moments. Asking a girl to prom happens all the time—but what this young man does is one in a million.

The great Rascal Flatts song, “I Won’t Let Go,” gives us exactly the words we want to hear when there are no words to say: “I will stand by you, I will help you through...”


Barber: What'll it be boys?

Boy: I need to get rid of some hair.

Friend 1: You are going to look so good.

Friend 2: Oh man!

Barber: For a date?

Boy: I hope so.

Barber: What do you think?

Boy: Shorter, please.

Barber: More like it?

Boy: Shorter.

Barber: That would be a shave.

Boy: Go for it.

Friend 1: I can't believe he's doing it.

Boy: Our work here is done gentlemen.

Sign: Will you go to prom with me?

Announcer: Being There. Pass It On.

Boy: Please?

Girl: Yes.

Being There. Pass It On!

Pass It On®

When I saw this video I thought..."WOW" that was very coragous...for the young man to do...not only for a date but to show the young lady that he would go above & beyond to SHOW her & everyone that he is there FOR her. Made me teary.

This one makes me cry. A good cry 💕 Where I come from I can think of many who would have stepped up. Young man (and your buddies) be proud of yourself. You made me believe it was something you would do in real life 👍❤️

Anonymous SEPTEMBER 13, 2020
I have teared up at nearly all your commercials and would like to help some way other than money, mine is in short supply. Retirement and the world has fallen in on my children and grandkids. All I have is time and a good heart. Thank you for all the great moments that made my wife and myself tear up. God bless and protect you and yours.

Cory Tucker from Largo Florida  AUGUST 16, 2020
I am a survivor of lymphoma, and completely understood the feelings involved. I was imprisoned at the time of my cancer, and I had no one in my corner. I was released last year, and now volunteer in a chemo facility, and still to this day shave my head so that the patients feel comfortable with me. I am there for them, because I know what it's like to be alone in the fight.

Dale from Jesup GA AUGUST 4, 2020
This video of boy getting his head shaved and asking the girl to go to prom makes me want to cry every time I see it. It is so uplifting and we need more of these.

Chason from Wy AUGUST 2, 2020

Ted Simmerman from Emmett Idaho  JULY 29, 2020
Thank you for your wonderful and touching videos.

Cecilia from Tacoma WA JULY 29, 2020
small things that make a huge impact are our strength going outside of our friends and family comments. stepping outside of their agreement to what you know is a blessing to another!

My favorite commercial! It's impossible to watch it and not cry.

Jeannie from Colorado springs, CO MAY 7, 2020
I get teary everytime I see that commercial. And also the commercial "Always be humble and kind" I recorded it so I can play it whenever I need to remember our purpose.

Duane Rehling from Laurel, MT MAY 3, 2020
This is so awesome and with losing my wife to cancer 3yrs ago gets me choked up every time I see it. With so much negativety said & talked about Generation Z, this really makes you feel proud of our youth and knowing there's still a lot of love in this world.

This commercial is fantastic. The positive messages you are sending are unequaled in any ad on tv (not to mention their stupidity!) I just saw the Encouragement commercial and what a delight . Whichever agency you are using to develop these commercials should be acknowledged for their outstanding work. Kudos!
