We are grateful for the help we have received on our journey and giving back to the community is how we keep our hearts alive.
We believe in giving back. As so many others have guided and supported us along our journey, we know we have not done any of this alone. We acknowledge and thank the community of beings who have helped us and actively seek ways in which we can pass on this love and support and be of service to all.
We do this in our daily lives, practicing kindness and compassion (you never know when a simple smile can save a person's day) and we actively seek people and projects we can support to make a bigger impact in this world.
Below is a list of groups we are currently working with. If you are moved by their missions, join us as we help make difference and spread the love and light.
One World, One Love
Help Reunite Families Separated at the Border
We believe every family deserves a chance at happiness. And while we believe in following laws and rules, we also understand that men and women that flee their countries to come to ours, do so because they are fleeing murder, rape, torture and worse. They fear for their safety and that of their children. We believe in the promise of our Forefathers. Bring us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses... One World One Love is proud to have been asked to help welcome and support families that have been separated at the border and are now awaiting their asylum cases.
So far we are working with two mothers, each with a son between the ages of 3 and 4. We are horrified for what they have been through and honored to have the opportunity to help ease their worry and bring them support and love as they wait to hear about their future. While both mothers are eager to work, they are prohibited from working and are each waiting trial under virtual house arrest.

How we Started
In the Fall of 2016, with the rest of the world I watched in horror, feeling helpless as babies, children, women and men died in Syria. My heart broke for the families torn apart and destroyed and the innocent lives lost. I felt like I had to do something and so when a friend posted that she was collecting clothing and other items for Syrian refugees being relocated to NJ, I started collecting and reached out to local Yoga Studios to set up drop off points throughout the state.
As I continued to post on social media about the tragedies overseas and the actions being taken here to help those that escaped, an outpouring of support and desire to help came from all over the tri-state area. Today with over 1000 members, One World, One Love is now an established non-profit, serving refugees from all over the world resettling in NJ.
We help to secure and set up apartments, assist with social services, job training, cultural acclimation, tutoring, advocacy and so much more. To learn how you can be a part of this movement, visit our Website where you can sign up to offer donations or needed services and join our mailing list.
