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 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.

Working with FREE2LUV® has been an extraordinary experience! After the SCOTUS ruling on Marriage Equality, our literary magazine decided to host a special "Love Wins" Essay Contest asking people to tell us what the Marriage Equality victory means to them. We wanted to find an LGBTQ nonprofit to partner with in this effort. We're so fortunate that Free2Luv agreed to be one of our partners! They set us up with a celebrity judge for the contest - actress, singer, and activist Thea Gill, from the groundbreaking show, "Queer as Folk." They enthusiastically helped spread the word on social media and to their database. Corresponding with their representative, Lilly Harper, has been a delight. She responds to every inquiry quickly and goes above and beyond to make sure we're getting the best promotion we can!
The work they're doing at Free2Luv is so important. Their youth audience is incredibly vulnerable, and the efforts Free2Luv is making to shine a light on bullying and intolerance is absolutely what's needed to make a difference. The support they receive from the Arts & Entertainment community underscores their resolve to make as big an impact as possible - and it's working. We can't wait to see read all the essays from people we never would have been able to reach without Free2Luv. And we really can't wait to see what this amazing nonprofit continues to do to make sure every person is Free2Luv!!
Sincerely,
Alexis Williams, Editor and Publisher, New Millennium Writings - newmillenniumwritings.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!

This is an organization that I cannot say enough good things about! They inspire me on a daily basis with their powerful messaging and I feel honored to support them in any way I can! Their mission to spread kindness and end hate is near and dear to me. I know when I purchase their awesome merchandise or make a donation, I am helping youth in their journey towards self-acceptance and that means the world to me.

I have seen first hand the work that Free2Luv does and I can't help but get excited about them! They are truly dedicated to their cause and they have the star power it takes to make a real difference in the lives of bullied kids. Bullying is rampant in our society and for some reason, many parents a school faculty members seem to be turning a blind eye to it. If these people aren't going to step up and do something about bullying, who will? Thank fully Free2Luv is here and they will stand up to the bullies and those who choose to look other way. I will do everything in my power to support great organizations like Free2Luv because what they are doing matters.

Thank you so much for your support! Bullying and teen suicide have both become a very disheartening epidemic and we believe both need to stop. It is up to each of us to take a stand, and more, importantly, to raise the self-esteem of our youth so we can prevent these tragedies.

All I can say is Free2Luv understands our youth today. They have such great insight and relevant in today's society. From their slogans, to their images and their awesome website. Speaks specifically to our youth and offering them a place to feel safe. Honestly we have so many bully campaign organizations out there but not like Free2Luv they got it going on!!!

The parenting community at www.OurMomSpot.net donated a Featured Ad Space to Free2Luv in 2014 because we support their mission to end bullying. Free2Luv's staff is professional and caring. They work hard to spread a positive anti-bullying message. This organization's work with corporate partners, volunteers, and celebrity ambassadors is truly impressive.

I have been supporting this nonprofit since its inception and I know they are making a difference in the lives of so many. Their powerful messages and campaigns hit home the importance of loving yourself and being love in the world. If children receive this message young, we can begin to eliminate bullying and teen suicides. Please support this wonderful organization and help them spread the word. When you support Free2Luv, you are making an investment in our youth and there is no better investment!

Free2Luv is so amazing and I am so honored to be an Ambassador for their organization. As a teen recording artist I reach a lot of kids with serious bullying issues and Free2Luv has helped me with my anti-bullying campaign as well as allow me to help them with their campaign as well. The "SPREAD LOVE, STOP HATE" campaign is one that reaches everyone and means something to everybody. I think they have made a great difference in community & have definitely at least made people think twice before they say or do. I also think, that even if just 1, they have saved somebody. Free2Luv ROCKS!
