Article: New York Times Best-Selling Author, Anna Todd Teams Up With Free2Luv To Create Inspiring Story, “Free”!


Free2Luv – an incredible organization known for inspiring people worldwide to help stand up and put an end to bullying. From their terrific March fundraiser with their “Love Is Stronger Than Hate” T-shirt to their #MillionSignMission – Free2Luv always has some of the greatest projects aimed towards ending bullying. Now, Free2Luv has just announced that they are teaming up with New York Times Best-Selling Author and internet sensation: Anna Todd to create a story titled, “FREE” to help encourage being “free” to love whoever you like. The story revolves around main characters named Riley and Lillian. According to the press release, “Riley and Lillian are opposites, just like every main character set in a romance novel, but they are different. Their LGBT love story addresses the struggles and rewards of being FREE to love.  Anna Todd, a Celebrity Ambassador for Free2Luv, has created this story to support the LGBTQ community and advocacy that Free2Luv represents.”

The wonderful Anna Todd shared her excitement to work on this project and stated, ““Everyone should be free to love whomever they choose.  That’s the message of FREE, my latest Wattpad story. I’m inspired by the mission of Free2Luv; they are giving a voice to people who need it and they are so passionate about what they stand for.  I see the way teens think and I spend a lot of my time engaging with them and Free2Luv’s voice is needed so much right now.  I’m incredibly honoured to be one of their Ambassadors. It’s an amazing feeling to be part of an organization that helps so many young people.” (source: press release).

The press release also stated, “We are very excited about this partnership with Anna Todd.  Her voice is relevant to teens today and her reach is enormous.  We are thrilled to be able to share this love story with youth who may be questioning their own sexuality or searching for a place to fit in. Our goal is to create a safe and inclusive environment that offers teens a creative outlet for their myriad of emotions.  They can share their stories, connect with other youth having similar experiences and know that they are not alone,” says Co-Founder and President of Free2Luv, Tonya Sandis.”

What a magnificent story! A spectacular story and the goal of helping to end bullying – how awesome is that?! The press release mentioned, “FREE is currently being serialized on Wattpad, the world’s largest community of readers and writers.  The first two chapters of FREE have been released at and the story already has over 112,000 reads and has been translated by fans in Arabic, French, German, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish, Italian and Dutch.”

Free2Luv continues to be such an influential and remarkable organization and their work to end bullying and inspire others to stand up against bullying is truly mesmerizing! Bullying is a worldwide epidemic and it is left to us to help put an end to it. Free2Luv’s work with the excellent Anna Todd is extraordinary and I can’t wait to read “Free”.
