Andy Tsagaris

Director of the Love Can Initiative

 

Mr. Tsagaris is the visionary behind the Initiative.  He has developed national media campaigns; photographed many notable faces in business, music, television, comedy, film, fashion, and sports; published work and editorials in national magazines; and connected innovative business relationships. He is a humanitarian, vegetarian, and a firm believer in the power of change. He supports working with worthy causes and improving the quality of life.

The gap between the economically secure and the poor is more severe than it was four decades ago. Lacking basic goods, including food, clothing, clean water, and effecting programing that allows the spirit of giving through partnerships helping families to enjoy a night out, No child left out. We are a more diverse population and a more dispersed population; we are older and yet remain divided by race, income, and location.

The Love Can Initiative was founded on the principle that no child should have to suffer from lack of anything.

An American Wake Up Call

As a human being I see. I see things perhaps others don't see. Both an observer and a participant in American life.

 

For me, a trip to the grocery store at 9 pm is a last minute recipe for "company coming" - though this a ritual for families living on the edge of poverty. This very store where I see evidence of half eaten food stashed in the aisle from furtive consumption.
