Love Unlimited Foundation, Inc. serves children and families lviing in impoverished areas of Jamaica in many ways. Through the mission to provide school supplies and backpacks during their LOVE U CAMP every August, children who may not have the access to the basic building blocks of education receive the tools necessary to achieve a successful and confident start to their school year. Not only are the children provided with school supplies, but the staff of Love Unlimited spends a full week mentoring, building confidence, sharing values, promoting positivity, and celebrating successes of the previous school year. This truly is a wonderful way for any child, especially those living in hardship, to close out the summer months and kick off the start of a new school year. The children spend a week with the Love Unlimited staff participating in learning activities, arts and crafts, physical fitness and games, and culminate their time together with a talent show and the awards ceremony for the Mott Scholars. In addition to the LOVE U CAMP, each December the Foundation returns to Jamaica to give the gift of love through wrapped Christmas presents for the children. Although I am not Jamaican by heritage (I am of Polish descent born and rasied in New Hampshire) I am proud to be a part of an organization that is making a positive difference in the lives of the special youth in this country, where the opportunities and vehicles for support are so few and far between. Even if you have no ties to Jamaican culture, but you have a cuIture of giving in your heart and family, I encourage you to visit the website and learn more about Love Unlimited Foundation, Inc. You will see first hand the positive, consequential impact this amazing charity has on the next generation of our global community.

Love Unlimited Foundation is making a difference in Jamaica. The work they have done has encouraged families and empowered children. Not only did the children this summer participate in a day camp filled with great learning activities and memorable experiences, but they also recieved a backpack and school supplies. Each child left with confidence knowing they were prepared to learn and succeed in the new school year. Jamaica is a beautiful island and attracts thousands of tourists every year. However, Jamaica is also a place where there are children living in poverty and families struggle to meet their basic needs. Thank you Love Unlimited for reaching out and showing these children that they matter.

I was really excited when the founder my dear friend for over 20 years started Love Unlimited Foundation, Inc. She took two of her passions helping others by giving back what God has blessed her with and children and created this wonderful foundation. The foundation is so cool to me because it allows other to spread love through the organization in places they may not have had accesses to otherwise. Working for Wells Fargo a company that gives millions a year to nonprofit organizations I was able to work with the charity group and give to this wonderful ,heartfelt organization. All the money donated goes to helping the organization give back to the school age children in St. Ann, JA. As a friend and a donor I am so proud to be a part of giving back to others through Love Unlimited. I would like to thank my dear friend for starting this foundation and being bold enough to light a match in a dark world. Donations help that match flame become a bonfire. Please help fuel the fire.
