Kylie Jenner’s new anti-bullying Instagram campaign has now helped a teen named Jacob Lescenski score a homecoming date. Check out the video below!

Earlier this week, Jenner announced the start of her “I Am More Than” project, where each day she is highlighting an individual who has proven they are “more than” their disability, their size, their sexuality, etc. On Thursday, Jenner profiled Jacob Lescenski and Anthony Martinez, best friends who went to prom together in Las Vegas. The pair are likely already familiar to some, as Lescenski’s “promposal” to his gay pal went viral earlier this year.

In spotlighting them on Instagram, Jenner wrote, “They had the best time at the prom and have inspired not only their community but the world. They even appeared on the @TheEllenShow! The most important thing they want people to know and remember is that ‘YOU matter and people care about YOU. People don’t remember word for word what you said or how you dressed or how you looked but people will remember how you feel.'”

“I’m obsessed with these boys and had such a great time talking to them. We need more people like them in the world,” said Jenner. “They’re leading a revolution by showing us all that #IAmMoreThan my sexuality. They taught ME that #IAmMoreThan the critics.”

While that’s typically the point where each of the profiles ends, Jenner included a little something extra this time. “Also… @kamideike and Jordan Ruiz!!!! Will you please go to homecoming with @jacob_lescenskii and @AnthonySexC?” she asked on their behalf.

While it’s unclear if Martinez lucked out with his desired date Ruiz, Lescenski later revealed on Instagram, “Hey ya’ll she said yes. Thank you very very much @kyliejenner for helping me out.” He included a video showing when he approached Deike outside of class, saying, “So, Kylie thought you should go to homecoming with me. And I think you should go to homecoming with me.”

“Will you go to homecoming with me?” he asked. With that, Deike accepted, and they sealed it with a kiss. In the hours since it all went down on Thursday afternoon, Lescenski and Deike have been gushing about Jenner’s involvement on social media. Watch the cute video below, and tell us what you think of Jenner helping Lescenski get his homecoming date! NOTE: Video is no longer available.

#Day 3 – Jacob (@Jacob_Lescenskii) and Anthony (@AnthonySexC) are best friends and have been for 2 ½ years. Anthony came out to Jacob early on in their friendship. “It was very casual,” Anthony said when I asked if he remembered coming out to Jacob. “The most important thing I remember was how loving and accepting Jacob made me feel.” When it came time for their junior year, both Jacob and Anthony were so excited to go to prom until things starting going wrong in their personal life. “My girlfriend and I had just broken up,” Jacob mentioned and he was just going to go with friends until he saw Anthony’s tweets. “I realized that helping him with something that would make him happy would also make me happy… and it would probably be the best way to go to prom.” @TeenVogue even helped them find the perfect outfit by sending them to @TopMan to find suits. They had the best time at the prom and have inspired not only their community but the world. They even appeared on the @TheEllenShow ! The most important thing they want people to know and remember is that “YOU matter and people care about YOU. People don’t remember word for word what you said or how you dressed or how you looked but people will remember how you feel.” I’m obsessed with these boys and had such a great time talking to them. We need more people like them in the world!
