Loveen Kaur Gill is an entrepreneur (running a successful Public Relations firm), Motivational Speaker, Activist, Philanthropist, Freelance Writer and a Poet.
Loveen’s education is in health care but working with community has always been her passion. She Immigrated to Canada with her parents in the 90s. Through her struggle of settling as an immigrant youth to Canada, she learned many lessons that she used over the past few years to council the youth that she works closely with, through her community involvement.
Recognizing the urgent need to address the long waiting list of organ donation, Loveen founded Canada’s first South Asian Organization Amar Karma Organ donation Society that raises awareness about the importance of organ donation. The group now consists of hundreds of younger and senior volunteers and many other social affiliations.
Amidst that mission, she is also working on her first English poetry book and is also the founder columnist of the series “(because I was born) that runs weekly in India’s prominent newspaper “Jagbani”, aimed at women empowerment and strengthening of ‘her’ individualism.
Gill has run series of events and publications to raise awareness about women’s health matters, and domestic violence etc. through her multilingual forum “because I was born”. The forum is about to initiate a new series of publications for seniors with health and wellness chapters. Along with her own initiatives, Loveen actively volunteers for organizations such as Red Cross, Trillium Gift of life, Global Girl Power etc.
Loveen Kaur Gill is a ‘believer’.
She believes in herself, her surroundings, the universe and the connection between them. “Basically I like moving the mountains, doing the impossible,
taking charge, brightening the room, making the difference, bringing the change……is my favourite hobby!!” -Loveen Kaur Gill

"This woman has changed my life. I am a orphan from India who was adopted by a wonderful American couple. I returned to India in 2013. I am a freelance photographer and was there on assignment. I was touring another orphanage for children and adults and the disabled. It was at the other orphanage where I met her. She spoke no words and I was drawn to her. Upon returning to the Sates, I was so moved by my experiences, that I planned a fundraiser for India. Her photo is in my living room and she reminds me every day to make this world a better place.

WOMEN WORLDWIDE'S CALL TO THE UNITED NATIONS TO REBUILD THE WORLD:
A TINY GROUP’S RESPONSE
".... .... On April twelfth, 1948, there was great jubilation among the women of a small sewing group in Great Neck, N.Y. They had formed an association to help the needy children, mostly in war-torn Europe. A memorandum had just arrived from the United Nations permitting them to add “United Nations” to their title, thus recognizing the group as an affiliate of the most prestigious world body.
The significance of the memorandum conferred honor and responsibility on them. They welcomed their new status with awe; they also considered it their reward and challenge. Immediately, they proceeded to place their house on a footing worthy of its name – “The United Nations Women’s Guild” ...
