Nonprofit Overview

Mission: You=Love is a Non-Profit Organization with the mission to promote Love Power by propagating the words and message ‘You Equal Love: You are the cause and love is your effect. The sum of all your actions is love’.

Results: YOU=LOVE is a *501c(3) Nonprofit Organization*, created in 2002 by artist and Air Force Veteran T. Klinkhamer. YOU=LOVE is an empowering equation and affirmation with an emphasis on bully prevention and suicide prevention that promotes autonomy, self worth, peace-building, human rights and free education for all. You and you all can be the cause of more love and peace in the world by helping us broadcast this beautiful message. The You=Love Staff visited Pittsburgh's School for the Creative And Preforming Arts to screen print shirts with the 7th& 8th graders and their GSA group. The You=Love staff recently self published, and released, a children’s book on titled “You=Love”. It is an empowering book about Love and Love Power. We want to teach kids how to be kind and loving towards one another in an interesting, educational, and friendly way. Our staff has been setting up book readings with kindergartens’ and other youth organizations in the Pittsburgh area. We have already visited The Children's Institute of Pittsburgh (Donated two books.) and Kindercare Learning Center. (Book can be ordered off the YouEqualLove website.) Recently we donated a package of 120 YOU=LOVE coloring books ,crayons and stickers to a school of underprivileged children in Dhaka, Bangladesh in a collaborative effort with UNESCO Youth Peace Ambassador and Vision Aid International Chairman Leo M. Robiul Islam. It was an amazing accomplishment and caused much joy. This donation inspired us to take on an even larger version of this effort. We wish to donate 1,000 YOU=LOVE coloring booklets and school supplies to under privileged children world wide over the next year. We’re currently applying for grants and reaching out to the people to try to make this goal a reality! *Please contact us if you would like You=Love to visit your school or youth organization!*

Target demographics: All human beings on this Earth.

Programs: donations of our educational positive coloring books to underprivileged children globally

love can change the world! it was the first journey of You=Love in Bangladesh with the message of love and this organization sent 120 You=Love books, crayons and stickers for Bangladeshi children. It was an excellent experience for me and so far I know this organization is looking forward to work in other communities/countries to make smile in many faces.

Actually It was an amazing accomplishment and caused much joy and also immense pleasure to the Bangladeshi children and peace volunteers team.

We successfully implemented You=Love Coloring Books, Crayons and Stickers
distribution program among Bangladeshi underprivileged children. Unquestionably, it was a significant project for our organization and also You=Love aimed to spreading out the message of love and peace among those children who are deprived from basic rights and facilities as well as can‟t smile well due to poverty.

Hope the relation between You=love and us will continue and grow up day by day to build peaceful world and also to bring positive impact in our community.

Best regards,

My experience with the nonprofit is brief, although I do have friendships with some of the founders/supporters. I really think this nonprofit is solely about ideas right now, which although powerful in their own right, can be frivolous without action. Artwork, teeshirts, and website are all great things when there is action behind the words. If the message is equality, love, patience, co-people... what is the medium to the message? The action? The movement of You = Love, generally speaking, really just seems to be a "movement" that is trending between a small number of hip people that all know each other. I think for it to be an effective nonprofit, it needs to direct its efforts outward to the community it is trying to rally. I think the message is so important, beautiful, and TIMELESS. Commend you on starting it-- for that, you're inspiring. Just think bigger, and more actively! Be relevant to the world-wide [and local] community!

Thank you for your time in reviewing us. Your comments are wise and appreciated. Our organization is still new, and still growing, to our community. We have many plans to involve everyone and anyone who would like to join us in defeating hate with Love Power, but we realize that these things take time. We hope you keep an eye, an ear, and your heart open for all the progress You Equal Love has to offer. Thank you again for your time! You=Love!

My name is Kara Keffer, and I am the Office Manager/Spokes Model for You Equal Love. I love being so hands on with this organization because You=Love stands for such a beautiful cause. With in the past 6 months You=Love has made some large leaps. We recently became a 501c(3) Non-Profit Corporation, visited with Pittsburgh's School for the Creative And Performing Arts to screen print 'You=Love' shirts for 'No Name-Calling Week', and release a Children's Book titled 'You=Love'. This organization believes that with your love power you can change the world, and it is very clear, that You Equal Love is changing this world for the better. I highly suggest for you to visit You Equal Love's website (www.youequallove.org), so you can find out how to do your part in creating equal love in the world.
