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!

In light of the current political climate and unfortunate marginalization of so many, I have been in search of an organization to give to that supports the LGBTQ community. As a strong ally of LGBT youth, I did extensive research and was so happy to discover Free2Luv. This group of extremely caring individuals offer a safe haven of love and acceptance and remind me that there is a lot of good in the world in the midst of darkness.

I have been with Free2Luv for 2 years now and I have enjoyed everything that they do. I want the entire world to hear about Free2Luv so we can put bullying to an end. This is one of the best anti-bullying organizations I have ever been apart of. I will forever be a Youth Advocate for Free2Luv. Since I have been with them, they welcome you with a warm smile, love and kindness. I have been bullied in my life so when I joined Free2Luv I knew I could help those around me who have/were bullied know that they aren't alone. We, at Free2Luv care about everyone. I can't thank Free2Luv for all the joy they have brought to my life with this beautiful organization. I hope one day I can start my own anti-bullying organization or an organization that helps people in need. I will forever be apart of Free2Luv and the wonderful things they do to help others.

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!

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!
