Jonathan Lopez

Founder & CEO


A DJ for over 16 years and in that time he has traveled to many cities around the world to perform. While in these cities, he saw the good side and also the bad. In rural districts, and villages all over the undeveloped world, children bear the brunt of family destruction. Disease, war, and abject poverty wear down the weak and vulnerable remnants of families. Many children end up abandoned and drifting into urban shanty towns where unspeakable dangers prey on them. When there is no longer a parent to care for a child in desperate circumstances, predators and necessities take their toll on them.

Seeing all this motivated Jonathan to help out and make an impact on these children's lives, but all of this was because of a conscious choice to do good and strive to be something more than average.

Lisa Lopez

Development Officer


Lisa Lopez is a New Jersey native and although she may have lived out of state for a time, there is no place like home. She comes from a large extended close family and among many the Lopezes value helping others. Lisa donated generously every year to various children charities but it wasn't until she met founder, Jonathan Lopez that she realized where the money actually went in for Profit charities. Unhappy with this information she wanted to do more and joined the Live.Love.Dance team to make a difference.
