Greetings from HEARTYWOOD! Our goal is to be known by our services of inspiring you, plus many millions of additional sisters & brothers of our Global Family; ONE Tribe. We are inspired by the globally-respected legacies of Mahatma Gandhi & Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who are regularly referenced by millions worldwide.
Gandhi, Father of INDIA The World's Biggest Democracy, stated:
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
Dr. King is Gandhi's most globally-accomplished peace & nonviolence protégé, and he stated:
“Everyone can be GREAT because everyone can serve.”

"What happens in Heartywood inspires LOVE worldwide!"
Our dream was born February 14, 2018
WE HAVE A DREAM that funders and supporters from around the USA & World will come forward to help us inspire our Global Family. At present, we are a beautiful, strong and 'hearty' little city-in-the-trees. We are also known as ATLANTA: City of Peace. Our DREAM is to recognize and celebrate artists who inspire HEARTS with ART.
WE HAVE AN ANNUAL AWARDS PROGRAM:
The HEARTYWOOD AWARD is given to Artists whose ART heals HEARTS. There are many fields of ART, but not all art strengthens HEARTS. The HEARTYWOOD AWARDS are given annually for positive Social-Action. Here is a PDF of HEARTYWOOD-2018 AWARD recipients.

WE ARE HEARTYWOOD:
WE are inspired by "Hollywood" [LA County] which currently collects over $80 BILLION annually from the entertainment, tourism & hospitality industry. Can you DREAM what HEARTYWOOD will eventually generate & collect in future years after its brand is fully developed? HEARTYWOOD can grow to inspire our entire Global Family and we invite / welcome your development assistance.
WE WERE FOUNDED FEBRUARY 14, 2018:
There are several reasons of why we selected Feb 14 as a foundation date. 1) It is already an international DAY OF LOVE-- Valentine's Day, 2) Atlanta: City of Peace has already been re-branding it as "I LOVE PEACE" Day, 3) this was the tragic day of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that killed 17 and wounded 17, 4) Year 2018 is the exact the 50th & 70th memorial anniversaries of Dr. King's & Gandhi's tragic assassinations. The worldwide LOVE & Peace Movement is forever substantiated when we remember that these globally-respected social activists were killed while in the course of teaching all to be peaceful & loving to one another!
HEARTYWOOD is a major project from Atlanta: City of Peace, Inc. (ACP)* which is an early-stage secular and interfaith organization whose mission is to deliver Atlanta into its true destiny of becoming transformed and formalized into a global capital of peace. HEARTYWOOD is one of several major projects and many smaller projects now in development.
