The Love Like Lija Foundation

Funding projects demonstrating care, kindness and compassion

Lija was a quiet force who demonstrated compassion and caring in all that she did. While this foundation gives us an opportunity to honor Lija’s memory in a lasting way, our major intent is to carry on the compassion and caring started by Lija. Remember — demonstrating care and compassion to others does not have to cost a lot of money. And everyone — adults, kids and teens alike — can find simple and easy ways to make a difference!
