Build-A-Bear Foundation Sponsors Free2BeME Workshops

We’re spreadin’ the LUV with a special series of Free2BeME workshops hosted by Advocate Lauren Suthers at Boys & Girls Clubs. Kids are exploring their inner talents, interests, and passions through art in a space free of judgment as they discuss topics including bullying prevention, the importance of kindness, following your passion, and celebrating individuality. This series was made possible by the generosity of Build-A-Bear Foundation. Thank you for your support.

If you’re an Advocate and would like to host a workshop or if you know of a group who would like to participate in one of our workshops, contact us at info@free2luv.org.

Free2Luv and World Wide Motion Pictures Corporation Join in Global Educational Effort to Stop Bullying

We’re happy to announce the upcoming release of the emotionally charged feature film TIME FOR A CHAMPION and our association with the film’s international distributor. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Free2Luv and other organizations throughout the world. This family film is an inspirational and powerful story which not only provides an intimate look at the epidemic of bullying and homeless teens but also leaves the viewer feeling uplifted. TIME FOR A CHAMPION which is supported by such screen luminaries as Edward James Olmos, will be showcased at a number of film festivals around the world this fall in the anticipation of its release in 2017. 

“We’re honored to partner with Free2Luv on this vital educational venture,” says Paul D. Hancock, President and CEO of the film’s distributor, World Wide Motion Pictures Corporation. “Free2Luv is respected by educators and civic leaders for its influential sponsorship of programs to illuminate the ethical choices that young people face every day in our challenging society. For them to choose our film as part of this effort is immensely gratifying.”

“We know firsthand the power of the arts to heal and inspire youth,” Sandis observed. “This is a groundbreaking film that will promote a much-needed dialogue. It shows the very subtle yet devastating and pernicious effects of bullying, and ultimately demonstrates the strength of the human spirit to overcome adversity. We believe that all children will benefit from seeing this film, and look forward to being in the vanguard of that discussion.”

TIME FOR A CHAMPION was produced by PSJA Southwest Film Society, a production company headquartered at PSJA Southwest Early College High School in the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District (PSJA ISD) in South Texas. The inspirational sports story portrays the efforts of a homeless Latina girl to overcome a background of neglect and poverty. Enrolled in high school by her new adoptive parents, she must then confront bullying in the classroom and on the athletic field. The screenplay was written by Barry Glasser, a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Together he and former Univision executive, Sarvelio Carreon, produced and directed the film, which was staffed by more than 80 PSJA ISD students and faculty.
