STOPit Founder Todd Schobel was driving home from work on a normal day when a story on the radio changed his life forever. It was the tragic story of Amanda Todd, a victim of online predation and the cruel and relentless taunting by her peers, who took her own life at just 15 years old. Amanda had shared her story via flashcards in a YouTube video that caught the world’s attention. Overcome with a sense of urgency, Todd was charged into action.
Todd believed the key to helping people like Amanda was to empower them to use the same technology that was inflicting hurt to ask for help. In that moment, STOPit was born.
