Art of Living Love

Received an email about Global Love Day – just had to share it with you!  Enjoy and spread the word.  Blessings, Lisa

In just 100 days, we will collectively celebrate our eighth Global Love Day on Sunday, May 1, 2011.  This simple symbolic idea to unite humanity through love, continues to blossom into a grandexample of cross cultural compassion, collaboration and goodwill that keeps expanding worldwide year after year.  Our theme is “love begins with me” and our vision is expressed through these statements…

We are one humanity on this planet.
All life is interconnected and interdependent.
All share in the Universal bond of love.
Love begins with self acceptance and forgiveness.
With respect and compassion we embrace diversity.
Together we make a difference through love.

We introduced this unique initiative in 2004 and have since connected with individuals and organizations from over 139 countries, presently have over 46 volunteer country, regional, and state coordinators, our flyers are in 36 languages (all available to download on our site) and we have 289 combined proclamations and greetings from governors, mayors, city councils and other prominent elected officials.

Held in conjunction with Global Love Day each year, we are now accepting your art, essay and/or poetry submissions for our related eighth annual Art, Essay and Poetry Invitational.  This is an awesome way to involve our youth along with those of us young at heart.  Guidelines are available on our site and the postmark cut-off date this year for submissions is March 31, 2011.

Many of you are already beginning to share your amazing ideas and local community plans for celebration on May 1 – it is going to be a fantastic year!  We will start posting these on our site soon, so make sure and send us your information.

There are numerous fun and easy ways you can participate and share your love on this day (and every day) and although we provide a variety of suggestions on our web site, we most enjoy your creative inspiration.  Consider forwarding this email, text, write or call your friends, family, community, schools, corporations, governments and media to help with announcing this day.  We are grateful for your kind support.
