I Believe Music has the Power to HealMy name is Gabbie Rae; I am a 17 year old singer and I am passionate about standing up to bullying and lending my voice to create real change in the world. As someone who experienced bullying first hand, I don’t want anyone to have to endure the pain and suffering that can come from being bullied and I want to let kids everywhere know they are not alone. I know how powerful and healing music can be and it’s important to me to give back by sharing my experience with other kids through my music and letting them know that their experience with bullying does not need to define them. Three years ago, I teamed up with an anti-bullying nonprofit, Free2Luv (free2luv.org), who utilizes music and the arts to empower kids, celebrate their individuality and spread kindness. I’m honored to be a Celebrity Ambassador for this awesome organization. Together, we have reached millions of families through our FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS BULLY campaign. I’ve performed on their anti-bullying anthem and in their ‘Rock Your Own Lyrics’ empowerment concert series designed to encourage kids to follow their dreams and not be afraid to be themselves. My fans that reach out and share their stories move me and I feel so proud to be able to be there for them and be a voice for change. I believe that one person truly can make a difference and I’m honored to stand with an organization that makes it their daily mission to empower youth and celebrate everyone’s uniqueness. I’m dedicated to Free2Luv and their mission and I plan to continue to support their efforts to create a kinder world. It would ROCK if you did, too! Sincerely,Gabbie Rae

We worked with Free2Luv in conjunction with a few other organizations to put together an open mic night benefit in Brooklyn, NY. Their mission to put an end to bullying and hate speech fit right in with our other efforts to aide women of color, the LGBT community, and immigrants. From the moment we reached out, Lilly from Free2Luv responded with enthusiasm and willingness to help us out in any capacity and spread the word about the event, along with sharing photos from our event afterward. We were more than happy to partner with them in spreading peace and positivity through this benefit!

I love how you use film to discuss topics such as 'coming out' Piece of Cake was so beautifully done and I'm sure it helped so many come out and share their authentic selves with family and friends. It's really great to know there is a safe space where LGBT kids can feel a part of something and feel supported. Thanks for being a safe haven for the LGBT community - we need you, Free2Luv!

As a celebrity ambassador for Free2Luv it gives me great pleasure to be involved with such a wonderful organization. Spreading love and bullying prevention are very important messages to send not only to kids but also to adults. We must all find a way to coexist and look out for each other. I love being an advocate for Free2Luv and hope that others would join me in spreading love and not hate!

Everything about this organization jives with me. I love how they use music and the arts to break through a problem as big and serious as bullying. I believe in their mission and support everything they do 100%. If you want to be inspired on the daily, follow them on social. And if you can support them in any way, do it. Trust me, we need a lot more of what they're giving in the world - kindness, love, acceptance.

In a word, Free2Luv rocks! They have such a hip, fresh approach to addressing a problem that's unfortunately been around forever and is now an epidemic. I can't think of a better way to really reach kids than through music, art and social media. Their message is 'bullying is never ok' and spreading love and kindness is the best option. Couldn't agree more. Thanks Free2Luv.

As a single mother of a teenage daughter, it's so vital to me that my daughter feels empowered and I found that this organization does just that. They stress the importance of being true to yourself and staying strong in your beliefs and convictions and not falling victim to peer pressure. My daughter had the privilege of participating in one of their empowerment workshops and it was a really powerful experience for her. I love Free2Luv and what they stand for and hope that every teen can be touched by this movement. We look forward to getting more involved!

With everything that is going on in the world right now, I am so happy that organizations like Free2Luv exist. They are passionate about celebrating ALL people and are a safe haven for anyone who may be feeling scared, isolated and alone. They want every child to know they're perfect just as they are and this is such an important message for kids to hear right now when they may be feeling very uncertain about the future.
I am a big supporter of this nonprofit and love how focused they are on serving minority youth. After their LGBT short film Piece of Cake came out, I saw so many posts/messages from teens and young adults saying how much this film helped them, some coming out and others becoming more comfortable with their sexuality and that is truly priceless. I hope that everyone who can supports this amazing nonprofit so they can continue their important work. To say I'm a fan is an understatement!

I have been a fan, supporter and donor of Free2Luv since their inception and am so proud of everything they do to make the world a better place for ALL! Their new Free2BeME art project is so amazing. Art brings people together and seeing what's inside kid's hearts is both moving and beautiful. I'm also really looking forward to seeing the LGBT short film they've created to support LGBTQ youth. I can't wait to see what comes next for this passionate group. You can be sure I will support all of their work and I encourage you to do the same. Our youth need each of us! This organization has proven to me that when you care, you can really make a difference in the world.

I recently found this organization when I was seeking help for my son who was being bullied and so happy I did! What a caring, compassionate group of people who are passionate about supporting young people. They sent him out an empowerment package with a personalized note that made him feel so special and even invited him to be a part of their Free2Luv family. Free2Luv has made such a difference in my son's life and now he is a Youth Advocate and inspiring and helping other kids going through some of the experiences he had. As a parent, I am so incredibly thankful to Free2Luv and the work they are doing in the world.

I recently had the pleasure of volunteering at Free2Luv's benefit fashion show in L.A. and it was awesome to see everyone come together to spread kindness and show support for their incredible mission. It's really amazing how talented and big hearted their Youth Advocates are and what a wonderful job they do spreading positivity by sharing their talents and passion. Every Free2Luv event is filled with positivity, good vibes and inspiration. The stars came out for this event and showed their support in a big way. It was an amazing day! I am always proud to support this organization and love watching them grow and expand their reach every year. Keep up the great work, Free2Luv!

I am honored to share this nonprofit with everyone I know! They are doing such great work in the world and cannot receive enough recognition. Whenever I share Free2Luv and their mission with anyone, I know I am helping them create a kinder world for everyone. It has been a lot of fun to watch them grow and extend their reach. They just brought their powerful anti-bullying message to Daytona 500 which reaches a huge audience and they will be sharing their FRIENDS DON'T LET FRIENDS BULLY message at Nascar events across the country. One of the things I find most amazing about Free2Luv is their Youth Advocacy program where kids all over the world join their team to help spread this important message. Every week more kids are joining them to grow the movement. I am really excited to be a part of this organization and happy to support them any way I can. P.S. If you haven't heard some of their inspirational music, I highly recommend you check it out on their website free2luv.org. Make sure to download a tune while you're there and help them support youth being bullied.
