John and Dori are the most amazing people. Constantly reaching out to suicide survivors and their families. Offering love and support 24/7 and the most amazing opportunities to explore nature while offering trips and events at no charge to them.
The organization gets people back in touch with nature with the trips always involving animals , sea life and plants.
Almost like seeing the world through the innocence of animals and redirecting their pain.
They are always doing events to educate about suicide prevention and advocating for the survivor and their families.
Truly inspiring !

My mother’s father committed suicide when she was about 10 years old, so I know how it can affect the survivors and their family members and friends.
I also lost my father to a heart attack when I was 16 years old, and recently lost my 25 year old nephew in a tragic mountain climbing accident. Life is always very fragile and very difficult at times.
This is an amazing organization and John and Dori unconditionally just give their hearts and soul to anyone they can.
I look forward to meeting them again in person, and seeing what else I can possibly do to help the organization and those touched by Love Sami.
Sincerely,
Al A.

The founders John and Dori of the LoveSami organization are exceptional, compassionate and amazing individuals that are dedicating their lives to preventing and supporting suicide victims and their families by sponsoring marine life and nature based outings and adventures.

I have had the pleasure of going on 3 different adventures ie; shark tagging; sailing and a trip to Butterfly World, as part of a support system and had the extreme pleasure of observing the incredibly positive impact these outings had on the people being sponsored. Everyone had absolutely positive, fun filled experiences.

This is definitely an innovative approach to healing. Highly recommend any one that may need to reach out...this is the organization to contact.

The REAL Deal. This organization touches so many in need of support. Their fundraisers are so much fun and the organizers make sure to take time to talk with every participant to see how they can help or how the participants can become involved. It is great to see the good in the world with everything that has happened recently!!
