The Need For Love
Mother Teresa once said, “The greatest disease in the west is not TB or leprosy. It is being unwanted, uncared for, and unloved.” In America you don’t have to go far before you find someone who is in desperate need of love. Communities have been crushed by the addiction of drugs. Thousands of people sleep in the streets because they are without a home. Women and children cry themselves to sleep at night because they have been sexually exploited all day. The need for love becomes more and more apparent when seeing the absence of it.
What if it was possible to put more love in the world? Could we create real change to today’s social issues? Could we start a movement that would change the world? Could we, through love in action, change the reality of so many living with out it? Project Live Love was born as an attempt to answer these questions with a Yes!

“Project Live Love is a non-profit organization designed to influence culture through love in action by engaging, networking and mobilizing people who are motivated by love.”
The Initiative – THINK LOVE
We influence the hearts and minds of individuals with the idea of “LIVE LOVE” by infusing that message into culture. We use tools like t-shirts, stickers, public speaking, billboards, social media, art shows, and more to inject the message into everyday life. We are marketing a message. The initiative focuses on working with all different areas of culture (Art, Music, Words, Education, Politics, Religion, Media & Fashion) to advance the message.
The Network – SHARE LOVE
We create environments and resources that allow people to network with each other and their community’s needs to collectively LIVE LOVE. We create space for individuals, organizations, and communities to come together to LIVE LOVE through meeting specific community needs.
The Action – DO LOVE
We provide hands-on opportunities to put love in action. We partner with individuals, corporations, social organizations, churches, and schools that desire to put their love in motion. We provide opportunities for them to do so by creating programs and projects that are based on local community needs and collecting projects from various 501(c)3 organizations that work on today’s social issues (i.e. homelessness, sex trafficking, drug and alcohol rehabilitation and more).
