About

Love Yourself Project is looking a grant writer and some administration duties/social media, and volunteer coordinator and ambassadors.

The Love Yourself Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts and education organization providing community programs which promote self-awareness, self-acceptance, self-esteem and skill building. It is our belief that with a strong relationship to the self, every individual can contribute to a future with loving regard for all living beings and the environment.

Beginning Nov 19, 2010, the Love Yourself team took to the streets and subways of New York City greeting people with messages of kindness and love, distributing over 500 "Love Yourself" stickers and hand-folded hearts, and encouraged people to engage in a conversation about self-love. Since then, similar events have been held in Pakistan, Paris, Luxembourg, West Africa, Florida, Netherlands, Massachusetts, Australia, Iceland, England and Stockholm. We currently have distributed over 750,000 stickers.

In 2011, the Project began working with children at The Earth School in NYC. Team members helped youngsters (ages 5-12) make origami hearts and facilitated discussions about what it means to 'love yourself’. The origami hearts were featured in the "1,000 Hearts"Exhibition.

To create the "1,000 Hearts"exhibition, the team collected 1,000 hand-folded origami hearts from people all around the world. Participants shared something they love about themselves and folded the paper into a heart shape. The hearts and messages were presented both visually and aurally. Messages from the hearts are continuously being posted via Twitter. We just celebrated our 5th year anniversary at BAM FISHER 2015 with 5,000 hearts of self love messages. Help us continue our campaign for 2020 with 10,000 Hearts.
