Love in Action

The Only Love Project can work with just one person. It’s not a top-down bureaucracy or a corporation that requires a board meeting to make decisions. You can embody love any time, anywhere. You don’t need us. Be love where you are.

If you’ve done something you believe fits with The Only Love Project’s Vision, please share your story with us.

If you don’t wish to name names or reveal who you are, that’s okay. Change the names. Change the city. Post anonymously. But your story may be a creative spark for others to share love with their communities. So please share it with us.

    • Bravo, Joseph!

      That’s what we’re talkin’ about. Many times, love is self-sacrificing. In fact, that’s usually a hallmark of love — doing things for others when it’s not convenient or comfortable for us.

      Thank you for being there for you friend!

      And thank you for sharing with us.

  1. Helped a senior citizen, who was parked next to me, load her giant bag of dog food into her car and returned her cart. She was very grateful. Seems like a no brainer….If we could all do 1 or 2 nice things for others everyday the love would spread quickly, people might not notice at first but they won’t stay blind for long!
    Light and Love!

    • Absolutely, Barbara. All it takes is being aware of people around you. Many others would have just gotten into her car and driven off. But you saw a need and stepped up. That’s what it’s all about.

      Thank you!

  2. Yesterday, as I was driving home from work, I came upon an intersection in which my lane was turning green. The weird thing was that nobody was moving except for a car slowly rolling through the opposite lane, straight for a bunch of cars. As I looked in the window I could see the man convulsing. Naturally, I wanted to do something. But sometimes the best thing you can do is just move along when you know other people have it covered. The man crashed right into a van. What did the guy in the van do? Rushed out of his car to help the man. At that point, he didn’t care about his car. He cared about the man who was obviously ill. I don’t know what happened, but that to me was a selfless act.

    • That’s a very cool story, Joseph. I’m glad you would have done something had you not be trapped in your lane. You did the right thing staying put and moving along. Thankfully, someone else was in a position to help.

      Keep your eyes open. Your turn will come. When your heart is open, opportunities to serve will appear.

  3. I like to grab one of the food pantry cards at Meijer’s on my way to check out. Ten dollars is one half hour of work for me, but the benefits to the needy far out way that. I also like to be on the look out for Random Acts of Kindness…holding the door for anyone coming in, getting that can of food off the top shelf for an elderly lady, giving a scared teenager the last $5 in my pocket so he would have enough gas to get home. People in need are all around us…just pay attention and we can make a world of difference with one small act.
