They are in the trenches daily working for change for our youth, truly passionate about making a difference. With the horrible epidemic of bullying and teen suicides, their FRIENDS DON'T LET FRIENDS BULLY program is more important than ever to get out to communities everywhere. Your support can make a difference. Free2Luv is the people's cause and we are the people - let's create change!

This cause is near and dear to me as I have many nieces and nephews and know that these programs are much needed in our communities. Hats off to Free2Luv for doing such a wonderful job. It is so important that we teach our youth to love and not hate at a young age. Your organization is truly making a difference, so thank you!

As someone who has experienced and observed bullying in my youth and as an adult, I understand and empathize with those individuals who are looking for someone or a group that will offer a consistent ear and strong guidance during frightening times of alienation and desperation that can lead to self destructive behavior and suicide. When I was approached by FREE2LUV to support this global organization, I found the CEO, Tonya Sandis, to be an exemplary model of kindness, warmth and dedicated hard work. It is these qualities that make this commendable movement one of the most accepting new anti-bullying groups I've been introduced to. I am proud to be called one of FREE2LUV's Ambassadors and I hope to continue to help spread its mission of love and equality and put an end to this horrific epidemic. Thea Gill

Free2luv is an excellent charity that really cares for everyone! I was going through a really bad time, don't want to specify as it's behind me now, but if it weren't for them, I'd still be there. I strongly recommend them to anyone out there that needs help and feels as alone and helpless as I did. Their assistance was a life-saver. Literally.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this organization. Their dedication to create change and help our youth is so important today in our society. We need to build the self-esteem and self-image of our children to put an end to senseless bullying and teen suicides. Their FRIENDS DON'T LET FRIENDS BULLY program will do just that. I personally look forward to sharing their program with my community and know that it will make a difference in every community it reaches.
