Albuquerque, NM – February 10, 2015 – Albuquerque-based Reload Love, a non-profit organization that works to raise money and awareness for children caught in the crossfire of violence in the Middle East, has announced it will “Drop the ‘L’-Bomb” this Valentine’s Day and are asking everyone to join. Reload Love is aiming to raise $50,000 to help support a series of efforts that will in turn send love to the Middle East in the form of aid to refugee children and youth who were abused by members of ISIS and are now living in displaced communities.

“Reload Love is about taking something as violent as terrorism and transforming the lives of those affected with something as simple as love,” said Lenya Heitzig, wife of Calvary of Albuquerque Senior Pastor Skip Heitzig. “By dropping the Love Bomb, we are asking people to donate as much as they feel in their heart to aid children whose lives have been damaged by the ugliness of terrorism.”

Monetary donations will be accepted in any quantity on Valentine’s Day weekend, Feb. 14-15 atthe following locations:

In 2014, Reload Love launched a program designed to upcycle spent bullet casings into brass charms sold as jewelry pieces such as bracelets and necklaces. Proceeds from the sale of these items and donations resulted in a $30,000 donation to the Free Burma Rangers Good Life Club

(GLC), a group directed at aiding children in Burma. Reload Love hopes to raise $1 million for the GLC in the near future.
