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 organization that is changing lives! It has been incredible to a small part of what they are doing for our youth. My daughter Maddy Vance, singer-songwriter, has written an anthem for their organization, Crashing Down, in hope to inspire other teens to stay strong & stay true to who they are. Free2Luv has been such an inspiration to Maddy, to give back with her music in positivity & be confident in who she is. And I have personally witnessed their incredible sacrifice and dedication to spreading awareness on this important issue, first hand.

A quote by my 16 year old daughter, "It's organizations like Free2Luv that truly do change the world with their words and actions. Kindness is something that we all deserve to feel, and I am lucky to be a part of something that radiates this much love, " says Vance.

My name is Audra McLaughlin , I was on NBC's The Voice season 6 on Blake Shelton's team.
I joined Free2luv as a Celebrity ambassador about a month ago and I am so honored to be apart of an amazing Nonprofit organization such as Free2luv.. I was a victim of Bullying growing up and I always told myself that one day I would get involved in an organization that helps others get through the same struggles I have been through... I am so happy to be apart of the Free2luv family, its amazing to be able to help others. I hope that I help and inspire as many people as I can

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 a wonderful organization with a really big heart! Everyone involved with Free2Luv cares deeply and passionately about our youth and their well-being. They provide a safe space for kids who feel isolated or different and remind them that being different is a good thing. They encourage everyone to be who they are and embrace every part of themselves. It's a message we could all use a lot more of. Keep up the amazing work, Free2Luv!

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.

This organization is doing so much for our youth - giving them hope and reminding them that they are perfect just the way they are. There are so many kids who need to hear this powerful message and Free2Luv is changing lives by being that light for them. I invite you to learn more about this nonprofit and support their efforts - they're amazing!!

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
