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.
