Love Ride Gives The Forgotten A Valentines Day To Remember

April 22nd, 2017 by Andrzej

Four years ago, three friends decided to do something practical for love on Valentines Day by launching the Love Ride to support the homeless of Venice Beach. So on February 14th 2013 they gathered some more friends and rode bicycles together along Venice Boardwalk giving out care packages of toiletries and clothes to the homeless.

The three friends, Anael Bonsorte, Liz Devin and Bertie Sepulveda started Savage Hearts as an umbrella organization under which they run Love Ride. Savage Hearts is also home to Wench Toast, Clean Carriage Soap Co and the amazing Butt Patrol which raises awareness of the serious environmental impact each cigarette butt makes - they give out informational pocket ashtrays to try combat the fact that 30% of all trash are cigarette butts and one butt pollutes 10 liters of water). Information on all of these extremely cool initiatives can be found on their website.

Among the Love Ride's partners is Conscious Period, which offers deals in which consumers can buy tampons for homeless women. The Love Ride Care packages feature survival gear such as water, snacks, blankets, sunscreen, lip balm, toothpaste, soap, hand sanitizer, underwear, socks and feminine hygiene products. "I have seen what a difference we can make in another person's life by simply being kind and listening," Love Ride founder Liz Devin says. "Love Ride gives us a chance to take the time to acknowledge the brothers and sisters that are in different places in life than we may be, but we are all still connected."

Volunteers dress in pink and pin red hearts to their clothing. "My dream come true will be when people are celebrating Valentine's Day with Love Rides all over the world," Devin says. "We are all about sharing love, smiles, kindness and hugs."

Love Ride has become an annual event in Venice Beach and this year it also expanded to San Francisco and Miami. If you are interested in hosting it next year in your city or getting involved with one of the existing Love Rides, get in touch with Liz Devin via Lizloveride@gmail.com and let her know you want to get involved. And please spread the word by sharing this via the social media buttons after the last picture.
