Did you know that Heaven Fest gives away ALL of the money from ticket sales and parking to organizations that help people in need? LOVE 146 is one organization that will be benefitting from those who buy tickets to Heaven Fest 2012. In September 2002, Love146 Co-Founders Rob Morris, Lamont Hiebert, Desirea Rodgers and Caroline Hahm went on an exploratory trip to SE Asia to determine how they could serve in the fight against child sex trafficking. In brothels they saw young children being sold for sex. In safehomes they witnessed the miracle of restoration as they sang and danced with survivors. From that first trip, the spark of abolition was ignited. The goal of this and subsequent trips was not to reinvent the wheel but rather to find out where the greatest needs were and how they could be most helpful in filling those needs. After 18 months of research, networking and other foundational work, Love146 became an official Public Charity in March of 2004 under the name of Justice for Children Intl.
In October 2007, after a long examination of who they are as an organization, and as a group of people they decided to change their name. They took a long look at what sparked them, what motivated them, and what they believe brings about lasting change. That is when they decided to change our name from JFCI to Love146, and they have never looked back.
