Mission: 1Love is a movement with a simple mission: do good in honor of Bob Marley's vision of a better tomorrow. Sparked by the Marley family it is a flame that burns for the Youth, Planet, and Peace. By aligning with charities and causes that support education, commitment to protecting the earth and invest time and resources into the well-being of humanity. 1Love empowers people around the world to enact lasting change. We invite you to join the 1Love mission today and help the flame burn brighter.
Results: In 2012, 1Love drew attention to mothers all around the world by promoting Bob Marley-inspired “Get Up, Stand Up” t-shirts, curated by Cedella Marley and Christy Turlington Burns and designed by Lyric Culture, with proceeds going to maternal health organization Every Mother Counts and their 2012 Mother’s Day campaign. 1Love cared for abandoned orphans by donating $7600 to renovate the children’s lavatory at the Glenhope Nursery in Kingston, Jamaica, a childcare facility serving 60 orphans in great need of love, donations and support. 1Love helped kids find their rhythm by partnering with Lyric Culture and Ziggy and Cedella Marley to create a series of Bob Marley-inspired t-shirts with proceeds going to Little Kids Rock, an organization that brings instruments and music education programs into America’s neediest schools. 1Love shared the love and fed the pandas by partnering with explore.org to promote a panda video featuring Bob Marley’s iconic song “Is This Love” with thousands of viewers “liking” and “sharing” the video. This resulted in a sizeable donation from explore.org to plant bamboo in the pandas’ native habitat in China. 1Love and our partner House of Marley brought the gift of music education to kids around the United States by serving as lead sponsors of Little Kids Rock’s Right to Rock 10th Anniversary Celebration donating $31,000 to the organization. The event raised $800,000 and ensured that over 100,000 children in our nation’s most economically challenged public schools will have access to music classes and instruments this school year. 1Love joined forces with Save the Children in support of their Literacy Boost campaign. Every purchase of the exclusive never before seen Bob Marley / 1Love design from Made For Good gives $10 to the Literacy Boost campaign. Literacy Boost Campaign is Save the Children’s innovative, evidence-based educational response to an alarming global trend — the rise in the numbers of children finishing primary school who are unable to read well enough to learn.

Bob Marley is the inspiration for a new kind of company that we will start this year. We will pledge a large portion of our profits to the 1LOVE organization in 2013. I personally donate 42$ a month to 1LOVE - in honor of another great man - Douglas Adams. www.masterminis.net

 I was trying to decide where to donate money this year and I stumbled upon the 1Love organization on Facebook. They seem like they do cool work and I love that there's a connection to Bob Marley whose music I love and who I really admire as a person. I ended up donating $100 to them after reading up about their partner charities on their website. I know that the money will go to help kids, which is really important to me, because they do projects with Save the Children and I think they also raised money for an orphanage in Jamaica a little while back. I plan to continue to donate to 1Love in the future and encourage others to do the same

I attended the Bob Marley Way event in Brixton, London this past July where I learned more about 1Love. I had the opportunity to speak to a 1Love representative there and she shared all the cool projects they have done with Save the Children, charity: water, and all of the involvement from the Marley family, who I think helped to start the organization. Cedella and Julian Marley were even at the event and stopped at the 1Love tent while I was talking to the 1Love rep. I'm looking forward to getting more involved in the organization and hope they do more in the London area!
