I recently reached out to Free2Luv because my daughter wanted to bring their message to her school. Not only were they responsive, they helped Olivia bring kindness to her classmates. The confidence and excitement my daughter has displayed since she's been empowered and felt part of something is touching. Kudos Free2Luv for really believing in youth and empowering them to make a difference in their own special way. Keep up the good work. Fan for life!

This nonprofit is a visionary group of activists who truly want to make the world a better place for our youth. They understand how youth relate to and speak to other youth and have a strong youth advocacy program that unites kids who are being bullied or having difficulty. They have created a community where youth feel supported and safe and know they are not alone, when at times, they have felt very alone. I support Free2Luv financially and through word of mouth whenever I have the opportunity. Their commitment and dedication is unparalleled and it shows in their innovative initiatives and programs. They are truly a life-changing, life-saving organization.

I have supported this amazing organization since its inception and am so happy to help spread their universal message that LUV is stronger than hate and braver than bullying. I have recently participated in their We Care program and just love the idea behind it ... every time a person donates or shops, Free2Luv gifts an empowerment band to a child being bullied. And you can even sponsor bands to make sure more children are helped. It is such a fabulous program and I urge you all to participate because together we TRULY can make a difference, one person at a time. Thank you, Free2Luv for your tireless work. I share your passion to make the world a more beautiful place for our children. Keep it up!

The more you follow this organization, the more impressed you become with their passion and complete dedication to the cause. At the heart of this movement is LOVE and this theme is reflected in all of their messaging and programs. I am honored to be a part of this nonprofit who understands that real change comes with the youth. Their youth advocacy program is fantastic and I am really enjoying their new Luv Happens series. I look forward to meeting the new Extraordinary Peep of the Week every week. As an educator, I am so thrilled to see youth geting behind this movement and making a difference with their peers. Kudos to all involved! Keep up the amazing work!

I have been a contributor and follower of Free2Luv for the last year. Free2Luv is a wonderful organization that stands for everything I believe in ... spreading love, ending bullying and celebrating uniqueness . I embrace their mission to empower young people to stand up for themselves and others and end bullying. As an educator and an activist for children, I, too, support providing a safe environment for our children and feel confident that this organization is making a difference. I highly recommend supporting this beautiful cause! Your support can make the difference in having more children have the opportunity to hear their important message.

I am a big fan of this nonprofit! Rather than focusing on the problem, they are solution oriented, empowering youth and reminding them of their strength and purpose. Free2Luv provides a place where youth can feel accepted for who they are and can deal with big issues including bullying and/or struggling with their identity. I love how they use art and music to uplift. Not only do they provide daily inspiration on social media, they also have a website filled with wonderful resources. I am happy to support their mission and thank them for making my life better and the lives of so many others. Way to go, Free2Luv!

I am so excited to begin a new year working with this amazing organization! Every year Free2Luv grows and extends their reach to serve more and more youth suffering from bullying and low self-esteem. A highlight for me in 2015 was having Seattle's Mayor Ed Murray acknowledge our service by honoring Free2Luv with an official ROCK KINDNESS Day and having celebrities and companies come together in celebration. Bringing our important message to underserved youth and sharing our powerful new Free2BeME Project with them was such a thrill. To see youth transform before your eyes and grow a new awareness of themselves and each other is the greatest reward and with Free2Luv, we all have this experience daily. Please support this beautiful group of people in any way you can. They truly are making the world a more loving place for us all.

I am always honored to talk about this fantastic nonprofit. The commitment and passion of everyone who is a part of this organization inspires me on a daily basis. I see the impact Free2Luv is making on people everywhere and I'm so happy to be a part of this family, dedicated to making the world a more accepting, beautiful place. Free2Luv creates an environment where people feel safe and maybe even more importantly, inspired. Sometimes all a person really needs is hope and I'm so proud that Free2Luv offers that and so much more. I invite you to get involved ... you won't be disappointed.

I love Free2Luv they're the best! They help me be OK in my own skin , and I actually came across them when I was looking for a nonprofit to partner up with my anti-bullying initiative. They really spoke to me because they were worked with the arts help end bullying and they were willing to take a kid to help out. They welcomed me with open arms, not only is it a great cause but they're great people. It's super important I feel that every kid should be able to be touched by Free2Luv

Free2luv is an amazing nonprofit that is run by quality people who care deeply about keeping the world safe and free from behaviors that put down or injure the souls of others. Free2luv is interactive and amazing; always coming up with new ways to spread "luv" to every community. The only draw back is I live too far away to be more physically active in all their awesome fundraisers and programs! Keep Rocking LUV Free2luv... you are AMAZING! I am honored to be part of their board... I only have agreed to do it because I believe whole heartedly in their mission and the quality in which this nonprofit is run!

FREE2LUV is an amazing organization. It is exactly what our teens need to know they have a place where they will be valued, accepted for who they are, and they will have a voice. FREE2LUV offers such creative ways for kids to express themselves and see themselves in the project. As a child/adolescent therapist I see the affects on kids who have experienced bullying first hand and I have talked many kids out of suicide because of what they have gone through; especially our gay teens who don't know where to turn. I have shown several clients this nonprofit website and they have found comfort in knowing that there is support for them In my opinion, this nonprofit is life changing and saves lives. I couldn't be more proud as a gay person that this nonprofit is available and so well run! It makes my heart sing!

Free2luv is really making a difference!! Whenever I wear my Free2luv t-shirts or wrist bands people come up to me and ask me what it means and I am able to have a conversation with them and bring awareness to the issues of discrimination, bullying and negative perceptions. Free2luv's Billboards and PSA's are reaching millions of people and the response is so positive and inspirational. We need a change in this world and Free2luv is really making a change for the better! I am so proud and thankful to be a part of their movement. Thank you Free2luv for all of the good that you do!!

This organization came at the perfect time. We need awareness of unity, that we are all one, and that we all share a common goal, LOVE. We all need to be accepting of ourselves, our family, our friends and strangers. In order to do this we need organizations, like FREE2LUV, to help spread the words of love and acceptance to people all over the world. I am proud to be a supporter of FREE2LUV and of the hard working couple who started this nonprofit. They are a wonderful example of love and acceptance.

I was introduced to Tonya Sandis through her sister that is based in Beverly Hills, CA. The connection was made because I design swimwear out of T-shirts and there was an idea of collaborating and creating bikinis out of FREE2LUV & Seattle Sea Hawk tees! My company (VIN-T BIKINI) donates 50% of all proceeds to FREE2LUV!
The passion and commitment that Tonya, Kym and their crew....have created a strong standing message that continues to flow through all of us! Bullying is a serious issue and this Anti-Bullying campaign is definitely one to follow and financially support!!!!
Standing strong and holding hands with FREE2LUV.
