A Love Story of Giving
The You Are Loved artwork was created by SooJ from Oregon, USA, a friend of our shop and a donor to our school mission. In September 2020 during the record-breaking wildfires in California and Oregon in September 2020, we purchased the artwork for a social cause. SooJ explained: "Many days and many nights I have worked on this piece as my prayer to heal myself, my community, and our planet. The week that I had spent locked in my tiny home due to the fire smokes has changed me forever. I no longer see sustainability as an option. I know that the real change needs to happen to make that better future for me. I am responsible for that change...with every choice I make in my life. I felt so helpless when the wild fires were taking over the west coast. It was so heart breaking to see people lose lives and their homes...and so many firefighters working in the most horrific environment possible. I am sitting at my 204 square feet tiny home for over a week trying to make sense of this new reality we are all witnessing. So thank you to the Love Stories Bali team for purchasing this artwork so that I can donate it to the people in need. I feel so grateful that I can contribute even through my toughest days. And I might never know the person I will help through this donation but that's what makes it so extra special. Humanity is full of love and I believe that we will come out of it by the power of love. It's the only way."
