TALK IT UP FOUNDATION is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Seattle, WA. Our foundation has an award-winning web series, Talk It Up TV, which is dedicated to positive media and creating solutions to tragedy. We help those who have fallen through the cracks by lifting them back up when they need us most. Instead of walking away, typically seen in today’s media when covering tragedy, we stay and create a positive ending to each story with a life-changing act of kindness. We aim to bring our community together and make it stronger, and to inspire kindness and compassion in our viewers.
We’ve saved a beloved horse from slaughter, made a young girl with Treacher Collins Syndrome’s dream of swimming with dolphins come true, reunited a victim of a hate crime with his family, ensured a dad could take paid leave from work to be with his daughter before she passed on, raised over $50,000 for a widowed dog rescuer, helped and inspired foster children, and so much more. Where we can help, we do.
Our hearts lead us to limitless causes. In 2017, we’ve chosen causes that desperately need more attention, including helping end human trafficking, stopping animal abuse, being a voice for anti-discrimination, raising awareness for invisible illnesses, and helping our veterans and our homeless friends, as well as those suffering from substance abuse. With the help of our supporters, we hope to have one full episode dedicated to each of these causes. We’ve replaced the fear-driven media with positive solutions to serious problems and unforeseen events by offering our hearts and hands.
Join Executive Producer/Host Anny Havland and the rest of the Talk It Up TV Crew and Foundations Board Members as we lend our hearts & dedicate our lives to making a positive difference!

We have a lot of causes. Each year, we pick new causes that speak to our heart and those causes get their own full episode. Want to check out our causes page? I’m sure one or two will speak to you as well!
We’re a 501(C)(3) nonprofit, which means we depend on the community to help us raise the funds to help the people we do. Do you love positive media and uplifting news? Do you love seeing people struck by tragedy raised up by our community? If yes, then we would love your support.
