who are we?

about the love harder project

I’m Tim Flannery, 3-Time World Series Champion 3rd base coach with the San Francisco Giants, MLB Network and NBC Sports Bay Area analyst and passionate musician and story-teller. Baseball is a game and a lifestyle, but my heart belongs to the Love Harder Project. I consider it my duty to leverage my baseball accolades in effort to spread love through music and assist wherever possible those who’ve fallen victim to bullying and acts of violence. Thank you for stopping by and please read on as I hope you’ll become as inspired as we are to permeate love and compassion.

Until now, funding for The Love Harder Project has been raised through the efforts of Flannery and his friends in music and baseball. As much as ever, The Love Harder Project message needs to be heard and felt.

Join The Love Harder Tribe in our campaign to love harder, and spread the message that there’s a better way. With your generosity, efforts to prevent violence and assist victims will continue to grow and expand nationally through programs such as The Buddy Bench Project.

Tim Flannery & The Lunatic Fringe


Changing the world one bully at a time, The Love Harder Project is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to educating the masses and putting a stop to the atrocities born from bullying and acts of violence. The LHP is an immediate reaction to the unthinkable beating of Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium in 2011 and continues to gain momentum and National notoriety through Tim Flannery’s music and tenacious charitable efforts.



It goes without saying; donations in the form of money are the life-blood of any foundation. We wish we could power all of our programs with smiles and sunshine, but the reality is that beyond the revenue generated through Tim’s music, personal monetary donations and the help of a handful of private benefactors we need your help to see our aggressive yet reachable goals become a reality.

Donate to the Love Harder Project

Donations in the form of money are the life-blood of our foundation. While we welcome generosity of any size, it doesn’t take a million dollar donation to get the job done. For instance, Sean Casey, Jeremy Affeldt and Will Clark all have donated generously. They love the cause, gave what they felt comfortable with and we’re very grateful for their contribution. Tim Flannery himself has given hundreds of thousands of dollars through a combination of music and fund raising efforts, and his own money. One private and generous donor matched a $20,000 contribution from Tim because the donor saw the tangible change that the Love Harder Project was making in the world.

Would it be an amazing feat to receive donations from every baseball player who ever lived? Certainly. But, we are asking the world at large to take a minute and understand how viable and truly genuine our foundation is. We’ve given our blood, sweat, tears and money to the cause and we’re asking you to join us.

Here’s what we can promise you:

  • 100% transparency. You can rest easy knowing your money went exactly towards the initiative we told you it would
  • We are a true 501(c) (3) organization which allows for full tax deduction
  • We ask that you work with us to identify a school perhaps that you’re interested in contributing anti-bullying programs to
  • 100% of ALL money, services, goods or otherwise are contributed directly to the cause
  • We don’t pay salaries. Everyone involved with LHP donates their time, effort and money
  • We have a crystal clear vision about where donated proceeds will go as we’ve pre-established relationships with many organizations, foundations, school districts and more

Every dollar counts. If you have a few spare bucks this month to contribute, we would be eternally grateful. Please send checks to:
