I'm Nittai Malchin, a senior at Palo Alto High School in CA and the founder of One Love Advocates. Our mission is to do whatever possible to improve access to education in communities that are struggling with destructive or endemic problems. My immediate focus is helping kids in Haiti gain access to educational opportunities. I recently traveled to Haiti, and I will be documenting my trip on this site. There are 4 sections (see navigation above) to my mini site: (1) my blog where i document my activities, impressions and thoughts from Haiti (2) About One Love where you can read more about the initiative (3) Support One Love where you can learn how to get involved, donate or help (4) contact info. And on the right sidebar you will find more info such as links to other sites, feeds, photos, videos, and ways to contact me or share One Love with others. Also, check out the cool toolbar on the bottom of your screen to see our videos, photos, and Facebook page, for translations, and more. Thank you for visiting and feel free to share your thoughts.

Collection Results!

After two days of collecting, a lot of questions, and a resounding positive response, we were very happy with our drive outcome. We collected a lot of different items, specifically:

- 51 Soccer Balls and counting
- Pumps
- Various soccer jerseys, socks, and more
- 12-15 pairs of cleats
- Over 3,000 pairs of shorts from Soccer International

It was really great to sit at Sunnyvale Soccer Complex and actually talk to some of the people who had heard about us or came to donate. Even people who knew nothing about our organization took a sticker and asked a question or two. The overall response from everyone was really positive. We handed out a ton of stickers, and hopefully some of you all followed the link listed on the sticker and are checking out the blog right now :)

As well, because of the response we received at the actual collection at Sunnyvale Soccer Complex, we're willing to do some follow-up pick up/drop off equipment collections in the next week before we leave. If you would like to schedule either a drop off or pick up, check the 'contact us' section to see how to reach us best.

One Love,
Nittai, Drew, and Omri
