TLF continues to develop and update our web site to provide information about our organization, as well as, being a resource of information that relates to the vision and understanding of unconditional love. By accessing the web site, anyone can research the concept of unconditional love, self love, self esteem, and other timeless understandings.
Global Love Day (Annual)
TLF initiated and sponsor GLOBAL LOVE DAY each May 1st as an international day of love with the theme "Love Begins With Me." Designed to touch all people around the world and focus on the power and grace of love through forgiveness, compassion, tolerance, diversity and community.

Love Begins With Me Film Project (Ongoing)
We are producing a new global film/documentary project with global participation and collaboration. We want to reveal that love is alive and well and is being shared amongst people throughout the world and how much better the world is when people are sharing their love. We are inviting people from all over the world to take part in or contribute to this film, by making video with their video camera, cell/mobile phone camera or Skype, etc. A separate LBWM web site provides information how people can get involved.
All Nations Love/America Loves (Ongoing)
We initiated a heart-based social participation movement that acknowledges and encourages the goodness that surrounds us each and every day. Entitled All Nations Love, this project is our collective opportunity to collaborate locally and inspire and highlight the kindness, caring, dignity and honesty that is the natural and greater part of our daily experience. The core theme: “Every nation has a heart, it is time to let yours shine.” TLF is also sponsoring America Loves as a model for other nations.
TLF YouTube Nonprofit Channel and TLF TV Presents (Ongoing)
With already over 175 videos and several series playlists, we provide a broad base of inspiring, educational and informative videos covering a wide range of insights about unconditional love.
Love Ambassadors (Ongoing)
We encourage individuals to become an Ambassador of Love and offer an acknowledgement of distinction. All that is required is the desire and intent to share in unconditional love. We ask people to nominate themselves or another through our site as an ambassador of love by sharing compassion for all life.
Volunteer Country and Regional Coordinators (Ongoing)
Creating an alliance of volunteers around the world, we have individual country coordinators that represent the mission and vision of The Love Foundation on a local country basis. These dedicated individuals share the desire to inspire people to love unconditionally and coordinate relevant activities throughout their country on our behalf.
TLF Social Forums and Mobile Apps (Ongoing)
These various online forums like Facebook, Google+, Twitter, MySpace and others, allows for people to share their thoughts, ideas and experiences of unconditional love along with exchanging information on our various programs. We also provide a free iLove mobile app for the Android and Windows platforms.
Seminars and Workshops (Planned)
Seminars and workshops are available for presentation to requesting groups that educate and share the idea of unconditional love for self and others. These seminars provide a practical discussion on the benefits of living life through unconditional love.
Meditations (On Hiatus)
We present and/or co-host free meditation classes to requesting groups, other organizations, and the general public. These classes are geared to beginner and experienced levels, offering an educational discussion on the values of meditating along with techniques and actual guided group meditations.
Halfway Home/Post Prison Rehabilitation (On Hiatus)
We have presented weekly meditation, life skills and awareness classes in the Tampa Bay area (also addressing addiction recovery) to a local halfway home for women. These types of gatherings are geared to beginner levels offering an educational discussion on the values of meditating along with techniques and actual guided group meditations.
Media/Billboard Public Service Message (Planned)
The Love Foundation is pursuing the development of a public media campaign. Through various media, (e.g. public service announcements, billboard messages, etc.) we will present the reminder of the power of unconditional love to the general public. This program can provide valuable exposure to the visions of the foundation. If you, or someone you know, could assist in this area, please contact us.
PBS Television Program (Planned)
In line with our overall vision to inspire people to love unconditionally, the medium of television can be a powerful tool. In 1997, our founder, Harold W. Becker, was featured in a pledge drive special entitled Unconditional Love - A Guide to Personal Freedom. We are currently seeking a PBS station to produce and air an updated version of this show or develop a a series of shows to help guide and inspire viewers throughout the country and world.
Database of Information (Ongoing)
The Love Foundation is beginning to research and catalog electronic and related resources of information that further the understanding of unconditional love, self esteem, positive thinking and other aspects of the vision of this organization so that we may provide these resources as an electronic database via our web site.
Resource Library (Planned)
Physical resources of information related to the vision and concept of unconditional love are being identified and may possibly be acquired by the foundation. It is expected that over time these resources will be catalogued and be made available to the general public or any interested groups to research the subject of unconditional love.
To improve the lives of all people, it may be possible for The Love Foundation to conduct research that scientifically shows the nature of love and its effects physically, emotionally and mentally. Additionally, there may be opportunities to assist in other research programs that furthers the vision of unconditional love set forth by our organization.
We are actively acquiring informational resources and materials such as books, tapes, programs, or essays on unconditional love, self esteem, and positive thinking for example, that can be donated or borrowed by requesting or targeted groups. Our goal is to develop community programs and workshops that foster peace, love, and self awareness as expressions and that encourage positive action (e.g. earth day events)
