Love Middle East
Let's restore hope in the Middle East. Let's show love to the displaced, one scarf at a time. LoveME works through trusted organizations to buy scarves made by refugees, and to distribute these donated scarves to refugees. Partner LoveME to fund this worthwhile cause when you become a happy owner of a LoveME scarf! You buy one scarf, we help you give away 2!
The LoveME Story
It all started over good food in Singapore. We want to bring hope and restore hearts in the MidEast. My mind started running with many questions in prayer.
Knitting groups are therapeutic. Can women knit things other refugees need? Surely to know they can be a blessing will heal their hearts. Can what refugees make last? So if we give to refugee children, they can grow up with their 'Linus blanket' as a family treasure to hand down to their children years later. What about distribution? Is it more meaningful to partner with other missions to reach the kids? What about buyers? Will they be happy knowing it is more blessed to give than to receive? Can we remodel missions and relief work systemically, make it more enjoyable and collaborative? And I heard God say, 'What if you help refugees help refugees?' How can I say no? So LoveME was birthed on the spot.
Last year, hundreds of buyers provided work for 35 Syrians and Iraqi refugees and gave a thousand scarves to refugee children in 7 MidEast nations. What joy!
This winter, let's send thousands more! Will you buy a scarf? Invite LoveME to sell at your church? Or purchase bulk for corporate gifting? Let's help refugees help refugees together.

I am deeply moved by what LoveME is doing, and the heart behind it. I felt stirred to lend my support on a monthly basis. Even if it's in a small way and I'm far away, I'm glad to be connected to the work.
My mum loves her scarf and we all think that the LoveME initiative is a wonderful enterprise we'd love to be a part of in some small way.
Such a creative idea you have for helping refugees!
The scarf is like the love from a mother. The world would be a better place if we can put more love like this over the next generation. It's not just a gift for the season, but an everlasting love from heaven.
Knitting these scarves are so empowering for these ladies! I have supported LoveME on a monthly basis at the start and now am a happy volunteer. I'm glad to see so many others believing and sowing too!
