15 Kinds of Love We’re Celebrating this Valentine’s Day

We have had the privilege of sharing so many inspirational stories written by some incredible and unique people. In honour of Valentine’s Day we’ve decided to gather some of the submissions from our 1,000 Families Project to spread the love! These stories not only demonstrate the importance of family, however you define it, they remind us to say “I love you” to those we care about most.
