Empower a child and change the
The mission of The
Lulu Foundation is to empower children who have suffered. We believe that
every child is special and powerful and deserves the right to feel that way. It
is through positive energy and the arts that we allow children the opportunity
to explore their special gift and unleash the power within. It is in the
creative process that healing takes place.
Our current education system
is taking away the very process that allows children to expand and become the
creators of tomorrow. It is through teaming and the hands-on creative process
that children become motivated and inspired to work hard and are allowed to
manifest their dreams into reality.
Lulus books and media tools inspire children to believe
in themselves and unleash the beautiful power within. We partner artist of all
kinds with inner city schools and organizations who serve at risk youth with
project Dream, Believe and
DO! A mantra, a philosophy, and a movement, Dream,
Believe and Do! inspires school systems and organizations to manifest
a collective dream using the arts to make world a more beautiful place! The
Alfred J. Gomes Elementary School in New Bedford, MA is our
flagship school and is located in New Bedford, Ma.
Our launching school... The Alfred J. Gomes School
GiftsToGive™ is a magical place. Thousands of
local children go there to engage in giving and service; they call it Tangible
Philanthropy and Big Citizenship. Kids donate their "gently-used" clothes,
toys, books and things they no longer need or use and volunteer at their huge
re-purposing center to process, organize and package tons of donations,
transforming them into thousands of individual gift packages. Hundreds of local
agencies and care givers go on-line and order customized gift-packages for
homeless and at-risk children in their care. All this is made possible through
the skill sets and commitment of their volunteer management team.

About us:Lulu Belle
Books is on a mission to make the world a more beautiful place by
spreading Lulu's messages of love, hope and happiness. We believe that children
have important things to say and if we slow down long enough to really listen,
we will learn what is most important in life; to savor each moment, cherish
time spent with loved ones: dare to look at the world through the eyes of your
child because spending time with your child and seeing the world with their
beautiful vision is the best gift you can receive or give!
everyone who has sent us an email, bought a
book, stood in line at our book signings or simply read about the Pyne
family and shared kind words: A big "Thank You" goes out to each and
everyone of you. We want to express our gratitude for sharing your
stories with us and letting us know how Lulu has changed your life for the
better. We believe Lulu lives on in all people when they share her rose colored
vision. Words cant express what this has meant to the Pyne family. Olivia
Lynn Lulu Pyne shines on in every smile.
