I am 56 yrs old and I was made fun of in school, pick on for not being like the others. My sons were also bullied terribly in school. My oldest son still has bad memories because of being bi polar. Kids were mean cruel, and nothing was ever done till he exploded on a kid. Then it was my son who was in trouble. Bullying has got to stop, it has been in my life and my sons. I will say I think we are more considerate to others than those who bullied. We know what it's like to be put down , made fun of. The parents have to be involved much more, as a lot of bullying is learned from them. Kids are our future presidents , soldiers, teachers of this country. They will achieve much more if they are not bullied . We as citizens, parents need to help stop the over 50 years I know of bullies.

Thank you for sharing your story, Cathy. Unfortunately, so many have suffered due to bullying and we really hope to make a difference. Thank you for these other kind words you left on our Facebook page: Great site for a greater cause. I am 56 and was bullied in school. It is time for it to end. My kids were bullied in school. It does have a lasting effect on them. More power to you!

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!

I love the impact this organization is having on the community. My daughter and some of her friends had an opportunity to be a part of Free2Luv's 'Real Kids, Real Stories, Real Solutions' and it was such a powerful and moving experience. Hearing the kids speak their truth and knowing that the solutions are in each and every one of them, was awesome. I am looking forward to seeing Free2Luv reach communities everywhere with their universal message that we are each unique and beautiful in our own way. Please support this wonderful organization!

Free2Luv is an amazing organization that I am happy I stumbled on. It started when I won one of the contests they were hosting and received a package that contained a t-shirt, wristband and tattoos. Since that first encounter I have been following the success and inspiration Free2Luv continues to be to me and the community. As a 2012 Fresno, CA Rainbow Gay Pride Grand Marshal, I was happy to wear my Free2Luv organization in representation of my organization My Lgbt Plus. Not only does Free2Luv inform the community with inspirational products and posts on social media site Facebook, but they are generous to donating to other nonprofit organizations. As a board member and the Director of Outreach for the Fresno Reel Pride Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, Tonya of Free2Luv was more than happy to donate items to our silent auction for members of the Central California community to see their work and take home items from their organization. Would I recommend Free2Luv to friends and family? YES! And I already have and continue to!
