Imagine yourself living in conditions where you could barely afford to keep a roof over your head, let alone have enough means to feed yourself….now imagine throwing a child into that equation.
Millions of children worldwide miss out on their childhoods as a result of poverty. All children are completely dependent on others; therefore they don’t have any viable options to escape the underprivileged life that they were born into.
Jonathan Lopez, world traveling DJ and founder of the Live.Love.Dance Organization, has created a way to help solve this issue. By utilizing the art of music and dance, his charity appeals to the hearts of donors who want to change the lives of underprivileged children all across the world.
HipNJ’s Gina Cernielia worked the red carpet at their fundraising gala at Fiesta of Wood Ridge. During the event, she chatted with Jonathan and received some insight on how he started Live.Love.Dance.
Through his words, you can clearly tell that Lopez has always had a philanthropic mindset. His career afforded him the opportunity of traveling the globe and seeing first hand how people, especially children, all over the world suffer from the harsh effects of poverty. His passion in life is bettering the lives of impoverished children all over the world.
“All children need is a little help, a little hope, and somebody who believes in them,” explains Jonathan. And with a little contribution, YOU can too. Too find out more information about the organization or how to donate, please visit theirwebsite.
