Luv In Action
Bullying hurts. Free2Luv has created a 30 second PSA to demonstrate the scarring and lasting impact bullying has on our youth, robbing them of their innocence and emotionally stripping them of their well-being. Our mission is to use music & entertainment to raise self-esteem and re-instill hope in our youth so that no young person is left feeling alone, unwanted, or less than perfect just the way they are.
We invite you to view and share our powerful PSA that aired at the 2014 Indianapolis Motor Speedway Brickyard 400 NASCAR event, the second largest sporting event in the world.
Free2Luv puts a red flag on bullying at NASCAR’s Brickyard 400, The world’s second largest sporting event
Free2Luv™, in collaboration with teen rock sensation Haunted By Heroes, is excited to launch their ‘Stomp It Out’ PSA and music video July 25 -27, 2014 at NASCAR’s Brickyard 400, the second largest sporting event in the world. With an expected 2.4 million impressions, their important bullying prevention message will be featured on Grazie Media’s Jumbo-tron video screen strategically placed at the perimeter of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Throughout the Brickyard 400 three-day event, their music video and PSA will air over 160 times encouraging youth to stand up, speak out and let their voices be heard.
Stomp It Out is a global public awareness campaign designed to connect youth everywhere to know the power of their words and actions and to choose to rock LUV not hate. For more information about the campaign and a FREE download of the tune, visit http://free2luv.org/stomp-it-out/.
“Our goal is to start a nationwide movement of youth standing up and making a difference together, using their voices for good,” says Free2Luv Co-Founder, Tonya Sandis. “Our hope is that this music video and PSA start a revolution of kindness where kids all over can unite through music, which is a powerful vehicle for fostering change. We are passionate about creating a braver, safer, kinder place for our youth and are honored to be collaborating with Haunted By Heroes, Grazie Media and Cardinal Energy Group to spread this important message and take one more step towards ending the bullying epidemic.”
“We’re very excited to be sharing Stomp It Out at Brickyard 400, a NASCAR event, to let kids everywhere know that bullying is not cool and together through music we can stomp it out,” the band said in a collective statement.
“On behalf of Grazie Media, we are honored to partner with Free2Luv in raising awareness for the Stomp It Out campaign. Bullying is such a massive issue in the midst of our youth today, and we wholeheartedly believe in running this PSA in order to bring attention to Stomp Out Bullying,” says Vanessa Wojtala CEO, Director of Programming.
Timothy Crawford, CEO of Cardinal Energy remarks, “Our management team at Cardinal Energy strongly believes that we have a personal and a corporate responsibility to raise awareness of this sad phenomenon. Our company’s presence in the public arena will allow us to encourage our partners in corporate America to recognize and help in this noble cause. We look forward to our working relationship with Free2Luv to help spread this message to a global audience.” Cardinal Energy Group, Inc.

Seattle, WA – June 3, 2014 – “When I bullied somebody, I didn’t really think about it at the time. A few years later, I realized there’s not much difference between us,” says Michael, 8th grader. Profound statements like these are why Free2Luv, a Seattle nonprofit joined forces with teen rock sensation, Haunted By Heroes to stand up to bullying and spread kindness through music. Today marks the global launch of their anti-bullying music video, ‘Stomp It Out’ and youth everywhere are invited to stand up, speak out and let their voices be heard.
With the rise in teen suicides and 1 out of every 3 children experiencing some form of bullying, it is Free2Luv and Haunted By Heroes’ collective mission to reach as many communities and children as possible to spread the word that every person is perfect just the way they are. The ‘Stomp It Out’ music video project was a collaborative effort spearheaded by teen rockers, Haunted By Heroes who rallied 5 middle schools in the Bay Area to participate in this interactive music video ▶▶ http://free2luv.org/stomp-it-out/
Haunted By Heroes is no stranger to bullying. “It bothers us to see our classmates getting bullied,” the band said in a collective statement. “We defend them because it’s not cool to be picked on by anybody. Watching kids be mean toward someone else, often when that person can’t defend himself, is one of the main reasons we decided to produce the ‘Stomp It Out’ video.”
“Our goal is to start a nationwide movement of youth standing up and making a difference together, using their voices for good,” says Free2Luv Co-Founder, Tonya Sandis. ”Our hope is that this music video launch can start a revolution of kindness where kids all over can unite through music, which is a powerful vehicle for creating change. We are honored to be collaborating with this amazing group of boys, who are not only accomplished musicians but also know how to rock kindness.”
When Free2Luv asked youth how can we stop bullying, the answers were insightful: “You need to be respectful because everyone is equal and we all deserve to be treated with respect,” says Carney, 8thgrader. “If you got a whole bunch of people who were strong and had a really strong belief in stopping something, then you could really move things,” says Elizabeth, 6th grader.
You can join the movement and stand up to bullying with Free2Luv and Haunted By Heroes. Get involved and learn how you can be an agent for change.
