After speaking with all are you they all agree that the main focus they wanted to target with helping the less fortunate, the homeless.


    Gina- after the type of charity the kids agreed upon we started brainstorming on the name. We were right around the corner from Valentine's Day so we were incorporating the word love. We thought "well homeless people are often forgotten, passed  by and get no love, hence, LOVE for the Loveless was born...


    Liz- now when we're putting this all together and going out there and talking about donations  we first ask,  "what kind of donations do we need well we need?" Anything and everything... What do homeless people need? Everything ,food ,clothing, water, candy ( for Valentines Day we gave them Valentine's Day candy and it felt like Christmas to them.) clothing items, box, everything, tends to sleep in, blanks, anything you know, and if you can't donate any of that, your time, come help us out, it's a rewarding, fulfilling experience.

    Meet Geena Samuels, a single mother raising two sons in one of New York City’s toughest boroughs. This Bronx Story is nothing like you’ve ever witnessed before. Geena encounters violence and betrayal from those who claim to love her most. She is on a roller coaster ride of a struggle to make ends meet and find true love with emotions raging between love and anger that sometimes lead to war.


    During it all the one saving grace seem to be Geena’s sponsor who helps with the bills and Geena’s expensive shopping habits. However his real intentions are covered by the financial security he provides. Will Geena survive the game, or the web of deceit her best friend Abby or Sponsor have woven, or will naivety and greediness be the cause of her demise?
