Love Across the Ocean started with one person, then spread to a small circle of friends and family. Today, we're lucky to have the support of people, young and old, from all over the world, as well as celebrities who who help make our events FUN! We're still a small organization with no paid employees. We all volunteer our time and efforts to carry out LATO's mission. There is no office, no fancy brochures, and so basically--no overhead! This means more money goes to the people who need it. LATO does not work in conjunction with any governmental agency in Vietnam or the U.S., although we occasionally work with other non-profits to further our causes. So if you've got love to give, we'll help you spread it!
