Sharing hope and love while improving lives


Give Love

The time to end poverty and hunger is now. Your $20 monthly donation can make a substantial difference in the life of a child struggling to survive. By providing clean water, nutritional food, education, vocational training, medical care, and LOVE we can lift them and their families out of a cycle of poverty improving the lives of entire villages and communities all over the world.

Our mission is to provide resources for long-term sustainability and our desire is to inspire them to extend that same kindness and compassion to others in the world. Each precious child holds the hope for a brighter and more hopeful world.

Will you join us? Together we can BE the change we wish to see in the world. Receive a copy of The Little Book of Be…. as our way of thanking you for your support.

Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much. – Helen Keller

Did you know that the world produces enough food to feed everyone YET approximately 842 million people suffer from hunger worldwide. That’s almost 12 percent of the world’s population of 7.1 billion people and approximately 9 million people die of hunger each year according to world hunger statistics; more than the death toll for malaria, AIDs and tuberculosis combined in 2012. 66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry across the developing world, with 23 million in Africa alone.
We can and MUST do better.

We Believe In

Living life as if everything is a miracle.

Creating and evolution- no one person can do it alone. A problem shared is half solved.

Building bridges- working with one another in service to transcend anything that may divide us- no labels – no boundaries.

The ripple effect of kindness-  it only takes one person to start the ripple.

“Paying it forward” – so that our efforts with one single person can reach many more.

The power of inspiration and perseverance.

Sharing personal stories of inspiration, courage, and LOVE.

Following your passion to make the biggest impact during this beautiful gift of a life we have been given.

Only through our connectedness to others can we really know and enhance the self.  And only through working on the self can we begin to enhance our connection to others.

Harriet Lerner

Somewhere inside all of us is the  power to change the world.

Roald Dahl

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
