WE WELCOME YOUR DONATION
Q: How does LIVE.LOVE.DANCE. use 100% of donations to help children around the world?
A: We depend on private donors, sponsors, and our board members who fund all the operating costs. They cover everything from the office rent and supplies to our flights to our missions, so that we can continue to use all public donations to help underprivilaged children around the world.
Q: Who started LIVE.LOVE.DANCE.?
A: It all started with a DJ booking overseas.
Jonathan Lopez was on tour DJ-ing when he came across children roaming the streets late at night in different countries and saw first hand the poverty these children were living. Even during the day he saw children roaming the streets and not in schools getting the education they need.
When he returned from this tour he came across a documentary named "The Human Experience". There was an experience in the movie where surfers were traveling the coast of South America and helping/volunteering with children sick and in need. So while they also got to do what they loved (Surfing) they made a difference in these children's lives by helping them.
Jonathan then came up with the idea of incorporating a similiar concept with his DJ career and his traveling. "If I can make a change in children's lives through the art of music and dance then this is my life's plan.” Jonathan came up with the name LIVE.LOVE.DANCE. Helping children LIVE, fostering LOVE, encouraging DANCE.
