“There is no way to envision life without love, and at this point in my life, I don’t think there is anything more important — love of family love of nature, love of travel, love of learning, love of life in every way — all of it. Love is being thankful, love is paying attention, love is being open and compassionate. Love is all the privileges you posses to help those who are in need. Love is giving voice to those who don’t have one. Love is a way of feeling alive and respecting life.” – Diane von Furstenberg
I read these words by one of my biggest idols, Diane von Furstenberg, in her book The Woman I Wanted to Be, and I haven’t been able to get the words “Love Is Love Is Love Is Love” out of my head since.
There is so much hate in this world. I find myself just waiting for the next terror attack to happen, the next shooting, bullying, crime, bad vibes, rude words, the next person that yet again don’t smile or don’t give up their seat to an elderly/pregnant/disabled person on the subway. I’m expecting it. And so when Aimee Song designs the newest tee in her “charity t-shirt”-line I had to have it. I’m a firm believer, that fashion is a kind of statement. And I would be truly happy to walk around spreading the “Love Wins” message. When you buy this shirt 50% of the proceeds will be donated to The Trevor Project (a non-profit organization that provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth). And no this is not sponsored, I just want to stand right behind projects like this.
And I have proof that it works. I got so many smiles and comments back like “Love Wins, hell yeah it does.” They all made me happy. The comments and smiles made me a happier person, and I think that’s what it’s all about.
Let’s go spread that love.
Love is love is love is love.
