2013 Celebration of Goodness Luncheon
Project Love - Purple America - Values-in-Action Foundation
Landerhaven
September 12, 2013

Project Love® Remember the Children Foundation is a character-building education and training organization. Through workshops, community events, leadership training and media programs, Project Love-Purple America empowers teens and adults to create a culture of kindness, caring and respect by putting their values-in-action wherever they go.

Their mission is achieved through hands-on programming in middle and high schools in eight Northeast Ohio counties (Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage, and Summit) and through video-based programming nationally. They provide intensive leadership training seminars for teens and other character education tools that help schools combat bullying, cheating and fighting and achieve key benchmarks of Ohio's School Climate Guidelines issued by Ohio's Department of Education.

In 1994, Cleveland insurance executive Stuart Muszynski and his wife Susan, a clinical psychologist, saw the link between violence in the media, acts of teenage meanness, and violent acts in high schools and our society and decided to do something about it. Knowing teens can grasp abstract concepts that may impact them for decades, the Muszynskis created a program to build character and life skills for that group.

Out of that first seminar, the Muszynskis founded Project Love®

Project Love hosts an annual event, founded by Sam Miller of Forest City Enterprises, that honors local community members for their contribution to their community, for principled leadership, and for setting an inspiring example for others to follow.

The 2013 Sam Miller Goodness Award was presented to Governor John Kasich, Sister Judith Ann Karam, CSA and Jane & Lee Seidman.

Ratanjit S. Sondhe, Board Chair Project Love - Purple America Values-in-Action Foundation, welcomed the crowd to the event and told how we need to find goodness in everyone and beyond that, to become goodness itself.
