I joined Free2Luv a few years ago and I'm still very proud of that decision. They have been making the most of the social media, using them to raise awareness and providing the opportunity to people all around the world to get involved. I strongly believe in their work because they have been trying to eliminate bullying by launching campaignes which are supported by the advocates who wish to make a change. They also have been supporting the victims of bullying and showing them that they don't deserve to be treated in a mean way. The message that Free2Luv has been communicating is to respect uniqueness and individuality. Furthermore, it is important to mention that Free2Luv has been making efforts to make people who remain bystanders, stand up for the mistreated. What they have been actually trying to do is change society to the better in the way they can. Show people how the society will be if that change was made. When an organization has an aim like that, they have a great responsibility to the society because they have to guide people in how to make the change and has to feel how important that is. Free2Luv does that and I believe that this is what makes it efficient and motivates all the people involved to push forward, keep up the great work that they have been doing and be part of the change.

FREE2LUV is an amazing non-profit organisation that has been motivating teens to join them in putting an end to bullying and gives them the opportunity to come together and try to solve this huge problem of our society. They have been active on their twitter and facebook accounts with posts that make each and every one feel special and that someone has their back which is exactly what makes everyone passionate about supporting them. Furthermore they are well-organised and always willing to give more details about their work to anyone interested. This passion and willingness makes everyone feel they have someone to turn to, feel safe and share their experiences without fear. I strongly believe that they have been doing an exellent job and that as long as they keep it up like that, the lives of many confussed teens who have been bullied will be saved. Considering that the suicides have been many lately, such organisations can be proved of great help in reducing these rates.

Free2Luv is an awesome organization that spreads the message that we are all unique and amazing in our own way. I think their message is a very important one and one that every kid needs to hear. When we follow our heart and be who we truly are, we can share our gifts with the world and that is what Free2Luv is all about. I'm proud to be part of this organization and help spread the word.

I am so proud of all that Free2Luv has accomplished and very happy to be able to support this wonderful organization that is truly making a difference. The dedication they show and inspiration they provide youth is awe-inspiring. If someone is suffering from bullying or going through a hard time, Free2Luv is there for them, encouraging them and reminding them they are amazing. Their FRIENDS DON'T LET FRIENDS BULLY campaign featuring the Super Bowl champion Seahawks and celebrities are bringing communities together to pledge kindness and bring awareness to this horrible epidemic. Free2Luv reminds each of us that we can be part of the solution by being kind and being there for each other. I will continue to do all I can to spread the Free2Luv word.

I started supporting this terrific organization in the Fall of 2011 and I continue to support it wholeheartedly to date. Their awareness campaign is thought provoking and their merchandise first rate. I really love their celebration of everybody's individuality and how they support our youth globally. If you haven't checked them out already, I highly recommend doing so: http://free2luv.org

I have been a loyal and avid supporter of Free2Luv for 3 years and I am so proud of the work they do to empower youth and celebrate individuality. They remind each of us every day that we are perfect just the way we are and that is a message that all of us need to hear! I have seen firsthand how their youth advocates flourish under their guidance and inspiration. When someone has been suffering from low self-esteem, bullying or self-harm, they need to know they matter and Free2Luv encourages them and builds them up to be the best they can be. Please consider supporting this passionate group of people who are truly making the world a better place. They are most deserving!

Free2Luv is so important to this world because it relentlessly advocates for tolerance and acceptance. They highlight individuality and the beauty in thinking your own thoughts without fear of rejection. I think that is crucial for people to know nowadays, not just for kids or teenagers but for everyone. In a society where we are force-fed media bullshit on how we "should act" what are "popular trends" and what celebrities we should "idolize" it is very hard to be yourself when we are constantly being told what not to be. Creating labels only enforces stereotypes and anyone who is outside the expected norm is then bullied and made to feel less of a person. It has become an epidemic that has taken the lives of countless oppressed people. I love Free2Luv because they are sick and tired of letting bullying become tolerated. They are pissed off and mobilized for change and I respect that. Together, we refuse to stand back and let this continue; we demand for a change. When more people can go to school or work and just be themselves that will make the world a better place. Free2Luv has a drive to change minds and break stereotypes and I am very proud to be apart of a movement to help reset society to an age where self love and acceptance is held at the upmost importance.

Any nonprofit that works as hard as Free2Luv does should be recognized and given the highest honors. They are working hard to stop bullying and while everyone else says they want to do something, Free2Luv and everyone associated with them actually is. If you do anything for anyone else in your life, helping a bullied kid will have the most impact of all. They need our help and free2luv is making sure they get it. From the time I first heard about them and through the support process, they make it easy for anyone to pitch in and spread their message of hope and empowerment.

How can I give this nonprofit more than 5 stars? They really do deserve it. Bullying affects everyone in society whether we like it or not and the fact that FREE2LUV is standing up against bullying says a lot about their character. FREE2LUV has done more for anti-bullying than any other NP I know and I don' think they have been around all that long. I don't know if they organize the concerts or not, but if you go to their YouTube channel, there is a lot of really good music and celebrities associated with them. We all need to pitch in and do our part to end bullying in our schools and neighborhoods.

Thank you Sarah for your kind words. We believe in the power of music and the arts to create change. We know that it can heal and make a big difference in the lives of youth and are excited to use both as a vehicle for change.
