Happy Sunday! TREES, TREES, TREES!
Under the wide blue sky and the most pleasant weather conditions, we came together again today to contribute to a mixed forest in Klövensteen with 1,500 more trees.


Children are guests who ask for directions

- Maria Montessori
The encounters with the parents and children from Ukraine illustrate the impressive strength and resilience they show on their challenging journey through life.

It must come from the heart to have an effect on the heart

Instead of reacting to the homeless with defensiveness and condemnation, we should promote understanding and empathy to create a compassionate society that offers each individual opportunities to improve their circumstances at least a little.

16 years - Live To Love campaigns for the homeless!
“The true greatness of a society is shown in how it treats the weakest. In the simplicity of sharing and kindness we find the true richness of the human heart.”

Joyful pre-Christmas celebration for people seeking protection from Ukraine.
We wish you a wonderful pre-Christmas season!

ove To Love - Care - Adventskalender für Senior:innen

Trees are life!

Planting trees is more than just an environmentally conscious act to counteract man-made climate change!

“Children are guests who ask for directions”

Simply offering the children from Ukraine a way to express their feelings through painting, handicrafts and movement games has repeatedly reaffirmed to us that our visits are deeply meaningful.

Trees planted and strong impulses set

We have set strong impulses: New trees planted along the Wandse!

Children are guests who ask for the way

The Gyalwang Drukpa in Hamburg: Bike Yatra in the Hanseatic City
Big surprise - The Gyalwang Drukpa, founder of the international and secular Live To Love movement, honored Live To Love Germany with an unofficial visit! All the team leads and volunteers who spontaneously joined us could hardly believe their luck when the Gyalwang Drukpa actually showed up for a meeting at our center. The planned Bike Yatra in Europe, which will take place at the end of May next year, received special attention as a highlight topic.
Giving children hope and warmth creates a trusting foundation for the future

It doesn't take much to cause happiness:
Today, under guidance, the youngest shelter seekers from Ukraine made flying balls out of bundles of cloth with colorful crepe ribbons. Afterwards, they tried them out during the song "Rainbow Dances" with very individual, imaginative movement frequencies. Some children played and romped with a large air-rubber ball - painted or explored various game donations. A lot of creativity, a natural joy of expression and liveliness colorfully characterized this afternoon.

There are so many things that make life happy, but one of the best is bringing joy to children
Live To Love Care for mothers, fathers and children seeking protection.
30 families with their children came to Hamburg Eilbek today to share encounters in the name of respect and love. Nina from Initiative Nordherz drew our attention to the fact that with today's action we have already been regularly active in the rooms in Eilbek for one year - wow - time has passed so quickly! The war in Ukraine broke out exactly one year and four months ago. After initially initiating acute crisis assistance, we moved on to regular visits for those seeking protection.
Great day of action with the soul mates
The balance of give and take leads to joy and happiness in all relationships!
Not only in interpersonal relationships it matters, but also in the relationship with the earth, the plants and the animals. The love that animals are able to give us is indescribably precious - sometimes quite clearly, then again characterized by a deeply moving tenderness. We need do nothing more than engage with them, observe them, be attentive, and a relationship can develop that goes beyond mere affection to love.
The reunion with Line and her charges at the horse sanctuary Seelengefährten e. V. was already familiar.
Beautiful biotope at the Tarpenbek realized!

New wildflower biotope planted at the Tarpenbek!
Thanks to GoNature, a beautiful collaboration with Live To Love and Wünsche Group - Hamburg became a reality today. The latter has internationally launched the "Wünsche Value Week" from June 5 to 11, 2023. During this week, their employees will have the opportunity to volunteer for nature and species conservation. Their vision is to provide concrete support for existing projects with an idea or an action, to establish encounters at eye level, to enable new perspectives - and, of course, above all: to whet people's appetites for more involvement!

Live to Love on the Day of Neighbors
Dieser Tag der Nachbarn - oder eine Hommage an das Leben!
Zum Tag der Nachbarn haben wir bereits zum 3. Mal zu einem Hofkonzert auf dem Gelände der Parkheim Stiftung eingeladen und zahlreiche der Bewohner:innen und etliche Gäste von außerhalb sind diesem Ruf gefolgt. Der renommierte und famose Violinist Jansen Folkers hatte eigens ein Programm ausgearbeitet und führte, gemeinsam mit dem klassischen Musiker Harald Schmidt, das Publikum durch die Welten der Klassik, des Tango, des Jazz, schwedischen Kompositionen, lateinamerikanischer Variationen und freien Interpretationen.
Happy World Bee Day

Fan out for wild bees and other insects! Today on World Bee Day, when the UN calls for protection for bees, we energized the existing Live To Love flower meadows for insects. We planted additional wildflowers in the ground that are popular with bees: mealy sage, grass carnation, goldenseal, and catnip.
Even though it is only a few inches tall, the bee is one of the world's third most important "life keepers." About 80 percent of all plants - including fruits and vegetables - depend on pollination by bees. It not only ensures the diversity of the plant world, but also contributes significantly to the nutrition of humans and animals.

Sharing is the new having
The secret of happiness lies not in possessing, but in giving. Those who make others happy become happy.
- Andre Gide
Live To Love-Care for shelter seekers from Ukraine - because sharing is the new having.
First of all, it is very important for us to express our indescribable gratitude to all supporters from 7 to 86 years old! Your generous and beautiful donations in kind, your handicrafts and homemade food have led to so much joy and gratitude.
"Earth Day": Planting trees in Hamburg´s Klövensteen
Think globally and act locally - the basic idea of UN Mother Earth Day.
Today, Earth Day awareness was raised in over 175 countries. The natural dependencies of all living beings on the earth are increasingly coming to the fore. We take extremely much more than we give!That is why there was a motivation to join forces in a variety of actions: "Invest in Our Planet".
The realization of the wedding forest: an event of joy and happiness.

Today the Live To Love - Wedding Forest was planted with many fruit and nut trees on a meadow in the village center of Schwiederstorf. On the occasion of their wedding, Adrianne and Peter had asked for donations for trees they wanted to plant under the umbrella of Live To Love Germany. After many months of detailed planning, today was finally the day.

Creating moments when life is playfully simple.
In the psychology of the West, work with the "inner child" is popular. Surprisingly, this method is most often applied with the regressive view of the past and the sufferings and shortcomings of one's childhood experiences. Children's own resilience, creativity, spontaneity, wonder and interest with which we as children also encountered life, is rarely taken into account.
Rushed to the aid of the Easter Bunny and distributed the nests in the neighborhood!
Live To Love - Care: wünscht allen Senior:innen ein glückliches Osterfest!
Heute am Ostersonntag haben die Kinder aus unserem Live To Love Team kleine Aufmerksamkeiten an die Älteren in der Nachbarschaft verteilt. Sie alle haben wir im Laufe der Jahre tief in unser Herz geschlossen und es sind schöne Beziehungen entstanden.
Colors, shapes and movement strengthen vitality and make you happy!
In der Entwicklungspsychologie ist mit dem Begriff Resilienz die Fähigkeit gemeint, trotz schwieriger Einflüsse und Umstände die eigene seelische und körperliche Gesundheit aufrechtzuerhalten. Bewegung und Kreativität können einen starken und heilsamen Einfluss auf uns Menschen ausüben und Kinder sind gewöhnlich sehr leicht erreichbar, denn sie lieben es, sich durch Farben, Formen und Bewegung auszudrücken. Mit unserer Live To Love Care-Initiative „Help Ukraine“ haben wir deshalb für die Kinder einen Tanz in den Frühling mit bunten Tüchern angeboten.
A happy and successful start to the 2023 tree planting season.
Frohen Mutes schreiten wir auf die neue Zielgerade von 20.000 Bäumen für den Hamburger Klövensteen zu! Bei Sonnenschein und angenehmen Temperaturen sind heute mehr als 70 Teilnehmer gekommen, um mit uns gemeinsam weitere 1.500 Bäume in den Klövensteen zu pflanzen. Wir durften viele neue Menschen kennenlernen und waren glücklich über die gute Laune und enthusiastische Motivation.
"The secret of happiness lies not in possession, but in giving.

He who makes others happy becomes happy." - André Gide

The two youngest from the Live To Love team, Mika and Frieda, visited the senior citizens in Hamburg-Winterhude! They delivered care bags, dedicated a few moments to the neighbors for a chat - and gifted everyone with their pure joy of life!

Being human - sharing warmth, food and relief goods

Living on the street means much more than being homeless and not having a bed, but also having to do without all the comforts that most of us take totally for granted. Homeless people often have no perspective anymore. Family members and friends have turned away, which is very painful and leads to loss of self-confidence. Some of the homeless people we met today in downtown Hamburg have suddenly lost their "old life".

Pictures say more than 1000 words

To be exposed to even a single day of these harsh weather conditions, the icy wind and the cold rain showers on the street, was challenging even for us today. What is it like first for people who are homeless? Today we have seen a lot of hardship, hunger and misery on the streets among people from diverse cultures and backgrounds.

Warming for body and soul for the people on the street
Almost all of us long for compassion - especially when we are in a bad way. It is generally easier for us to feel compassion for people in our immediate environment, but many people find it strange or even impossible to show compassion to a complete stranger. For a long time, compassion was considered something that only religions or spiritual traditions were responsible for. One of the first to approach the subject of compassion from a neuroscientific perspective was Paul Gilbert, Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Derby. He studied what effects simply practicing a compassion meditation can have on the brain and on human behavior.
“Children are guests who ask for directions.”

Nikolaus and Nikoletta. Pictures speak more than 1000 words...
Today, NIKOLAUS and the female equivalent NIKOLETTA invited us to dance and move with a sung children's song. This was an essential contribution of our visit today to the pregnant women, babies and children seeking protection. Dance, movement and creativity can contribute, at least for a moment - maybe even in the long term, impulses for healing from wounding and trauma.
A valuable contribution to healthy forests
The forest is a special being, of unlimited goodness and affection, which makes no demands and generously passes on the products of its life's work; it offers shelter to all creatures and provides shade even for the woodcutter who cuts down trees.
~ Buddha (560 - 480 B.C.), also: Siddhartha Gautama (Pali: Siddhattha Gotama), founder of the philosophy named after him Buddhism.
This universal truth of an enlightened man is nowadays confirmed by modern science in all relevant contexts. This is very helpful - but no theoretical inspiration can be replaced by a direct experience. We had that today in abundance!
"Children are guests who ask for directions."

"Helping one person alone may not change the whole world, but it can change the whole world for that one person"  We met many new faces - exhausted, worried, some withdrawn and fearful - at our Care Action today. Currently, many young women from Ukraine are coming to the city again, after the infrastructure in their country is increasingly destroyed and especially pregnant women and young mothers are called to leave the country.
