Today, leading live streaming, social selling online network talkshoplive®announced their month-long partnership with The King Center in honor of Black History Month. The site’s built-in “donate” button, which appears on EVERY checkout site-wide, will direct all funds raised to The King Center’s “BE LOVE” campaign, a growing movement of courageous acts to achieve justice.
The “BE LOVE” campaign encourages participants to pledge to create what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called “The Beloved Community,” a society driven by love in their thoughts, words, decisions and actions, honoring the humanity of every individual. The campaign also urges individuals to register for Nonviolence365® “BE LOVE” virtual training series at www.TheKingCenter.org/belove. Nonviolence365® equips individuals with the necessary tools to navigate today’s climate and dismantle and transform unjust systems. The BE LOVE 3-part training series will be an introduction to Nonviolence365®training, which prepares participants to utilize Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s nonviolent philosophy and methodology as a vessel for social change, as a way of life and as the path to the Beloved Community.
“We are honored to be partnering with The King Center and helping to raise funds for the crucial work that they are doing to create a more just, humane, and peaceful world guided by the philosophy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,” said Bryan Moore, CEO of talkshoplive. “talkshoplive is an open and welcoming community and we encourage those utilizing the platform to consider donating not only financially, but with their everyday actions as we celebrate Black History Month and strive for equality.”
The campaign will launch today and continue throughout the month of February. talkshoplive will continue to profile the donate button on its platform, encouraging a variety of charities to join live commerce as a meaningful way to fundraise, interact, and grow their digital communities.
“We invite people to join us as we use the power of love to overcome our current circumstances of injustice and inequity,” said King Center CEO, Dr. Bernice A. King. “Together, we have the capacity to create a more just, humane, equitable and peaceful world but we must make the commitment to BE LOVE as we implement justice and correct centuries of injustice.”
