In 2003 K’lei created HELLO Peace and the HELLO Foundation, to show that there is love on Earth, right here, right now. After a time of reflection K’lei was deeply pondering what she could create as an offering for the Earth, for humanity and for the children. HELLO stands for Humanity Evolving Love Light O=circle around the Earth. She believes children are not just the future, they are the now. She began by walking into an elementary school and asked if she could work with the children on a global peace project. And it grew from there, she would meet with the children and ask them questions regarding what their message for the world would be in light of everything that is happening here now.
“We all know we share the Earth”HELLO differs from other organizations in that K’lei wasn’t teaching the children about peace. Her belief is that the children already know, that we all already know, and that the children come with a message for all of us. She would meet with these beautiful young souls and ask them if they had a message they would like to share with the whole world…what would it be. Then she invited the children to create art expressing their message. HELLO would hold annual Earth Day events planting trees, showcasing the messages and releasing doves in honor of Peace. When one views these children’s messages with an open heart they can feel the wisdom and are uplifted by these sweet messages concerning, unity, love, the earth, the animals, non-violence, reaching across cultures and creating a space of love. K’lei has worked with thousands of kids with HELLO and still dreams of exhibiting their work internationally. The book HELLO Peace is a small collection of these messages. “We all know we share the Earth”-K’lei.
HELLO is an offering from K’lei’s heart and she feels very grateful to have been able to create it.
