One Love Movement partners with nonprofits and social causes to build awareness and raise funding for their efforts.
Our areas of interest and expertise include:
One Love Seoul, South Korea
The journey back to Seoul for the first time since being adopted - Story captured here.
From our founder, Kim Bauman: My dream is to find my birth mom, the foster family, the doctor who me in, the social worker, anyone from that first year as an orphan. I want to go back to volunteer, and create a One Love project to help the kids living there whose shoes I was once in.
Eastern, the org. that took care of me in 1975, today takes in 500+ abandoned babies/year. I was thrilled to get this message of information. It feels so good to learn something more that brings me closer to my truth. This means Eastern is responsible for ALL 500 babies ALL day. Wow, can you imagine? 500 crying babies? The amount of caretakers needed, the baby formula, the diapers.... this is really blowing my mind and to think that I USED TO BE 1 OF THESE 500 BABIES! "One Love Seoul" is one of the beneficiaries and projects of One Love Movement. A % of funds raised will aid in helping abandoned babies like these 500+!
How can you help? We need resources. Contacts and connections to documentarists, to videographers/photographers, to storytellers, media, adoption resources, anyone in the field who could be helpful in telling our story and helping us find anyone connected to our Founders past.

One Love Puerto Rico
Too many Puerto Ricans continue to suffer without electrical power and the basic necessities. Impact a family directly by donating to a small group of volunteers who work face-to-face with families affected.
The image of the house was built for a family who's home was leveled from Hurricane Maria. The home was built without a bathroom. We are raising money to build a fully functional bathroom with toilet, sink, shower and all the amenities. We need ~$1,500 to complete this project. Please consider helping this family have a bathroom!
