Stand Up Against LGBTQ Youth Bullying Fundraiser
Free2Luv® is an award-winning nonprofit dedicated to standing up against bullying and helping to save the lives of our LGBTQ youth community by rockin’ individuality, celebrating equality, and spreading kindness through arts & entertainment. We empower, engage & enlighten youth to be their true, authentic selves and know that they are perfect just the way they are.
FREE2LUV teams up with Celebrity Ambassadors, Youth Advocates and corporations who believe LUV is STRONGER than hate and BRAVER than bullying. We hold hands with our partners to create thought-provoking awareness campaigns, support and produce community outreach events, and create a cool line of cause inspired merchandise designed to create change.
What: Patxi’s Pizza is partnering with Free2Luv by donating 10% of all sales for a day registered in the restaurant, including dine-in, take-out and delivery orders. It’s part of their 52 Weeks of Giving.
Where: Patxi’s Pizza is located in downtown Ballard at 5323 Ballard Ave NW in Seattle. For delivery or carryout, go to PatxisPizza.com or call 206-946-1512.

Why: According to the CDC, the LGBTQ youth community is 4x more likely than their heterosexual peers to attempt suicide. When people stop in, order lunch for their office, buy a gift card, or even have Patxi’s Pizza deliver, they are standing up to bullying and helping to save lives.
