In the beginning, there was Arthur, a poverty-stricken man who is the inspiration behind our humanitarian campaign Love United.
”I met Arthur on a trip to San Francisco. I ran into him outside of a grocery store as I was heading back to our hotel after an eventful day of meetings and photoshoots. I was tired, cold, and starving, yet he needed my attention. We talked cordially, and I soon began to feel rejuvinated just from talking with him. Although I was only able to give him a couple of dollars, he was overjoyed. It touched my heart to see such joy from only a few dollars given and an hour of my time. Truthfully, I wished I could have helped him more.”
- Seanloui (Co-founder of Unite)
From that moment forward, everything changed for Seanloui. Arthur’s vivacious personality and humble heart sparked the desire to help others in need, thus creating our organization Unitepeople.
