LOVEWINS started Oct. 3, 2017, just 2 days after the mass shooting in Las Vegas, on Oct. 1, 2017. It was started on the idea that "A random act of kindness WILL change the world!" The founding eight came together to help others through their journey of healing and in turn helped themselves heal in the process.
The initial plan was to do a holiday drive that focused on the 58 families who lost their loved ones and victims from that night. We reached out to what would become the Country Strong Family and people all over the world adopted a family and made sure that each family adopted had everything covered from dinner to gifts.
We have held fundraisers, group dinners, and photo gatherings as a way for survivors and the families of the 58 lost, to connect with their heroes and new “Framily” (as we like to call each other). Our world changed in those 11 minutes and we are determined to never let evil win. We believe LOVE WILL ALWAYS WIN.
We have been boots on the ground after similar tragedies such as Borderline and Texas. Whenever and where ever a mass shooting has taken place since Oct 1, 2017 we always respond with How Can We Help? It's been our belief since the day we were formed that if one person practiced one random act of kindness a day the world can forever be changed.
