“Love is free, spread it everywhere.”- Sander Jennings. With the rise of social media, we are more connected than ever. And while this increased connectedness gives us an opportunity to come together and support one another, it has also created a platform for people to spread negativity and divisiveness.Every day, millions of people are ridiculed and belittled because of their identity, beliefs, and looks. And sadly, these events are highly traumatic and have contributed to suicide becoming the second leading cause of death for college-aged youth.The antidote to this problem is complex, but it starts with increasing the amount of love and acceptance spreading through the world.
This scholarship fund will go towards The Sander Jennings Spread the Love Scholarship, which will support students who have had difficulty with self-love and acceptance in the past to allow them to reach their dreams.
