Where do we turn in a world consumed by challenges? LOVE, HALLIE believes our best hope comes from young people. They have energy, empathy, and desire to help, and LOVE, HALLIE focuses on reinforcing those characteristics --giving them encouragement and confidence to engage in the good fight.
For the past 13 years, LOVE, HALLIE has drawn inspiration from Hallie Geier's life and many writings to further its empathy/action mission through collaborations with Oprah Winfrey, the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Malaria No More, and many others.
Now, with your support, we will expand the activities of Hallie's Angels, our youth action arm; develop an online and physical changemaker center; and produce three Hallie-related works to provide permanent inspiration to young people everywhere.
The first will be a book Hallie wrote at age 6, illustrated by Casey Concelmo. That book simply and beautifully evokes Hallie's vision of a world where love abounds for everyone and everything both now and forever:
The Earth is very nice.
No earth no us.
The earth is very special to all of us.
The sea creatures glide
and the land creatures crawl
and the insects tiptoe all around the earth.
I'll love the earth forever.
I love it now too.
I love all my friends on earth
Isn't this beautiful?
Isn't that beautiful?
Isn't the earth beautiful?
Supporters of this year's campaign will receive advance copies of The Earth, as well as our two additional Hallie-related works: Carpe Diem, a story of Hallie's life, death, and all that followed through her father's eyes, and I Hope I Get The Chance: The Hallie Geier Anthology.
Your contribution matters! LOVE, HALLIE leverages a small budget to make a big difference, and every gift is vital.
