About the Felice Foundation Many years ago while traveling in Hong Kong Leo Buscaglia met a Chinese refugee who with his family lived in extreme poverty The young refugees name was Wong In order to find work Wong needed to learn English Dr Buscaglia paid Wongs tuition to an English-language school Years later Wong wrote to Dr Buscaglia By then he was sufficiently employed to get his family out of the refugee camp He was also prepared to pay back what he saw as his debt Instead Dr Buscaglia encouraged him to find another determined person such as himself and to give the money with love from Wong and Leo with the hope that in this way it might touch many lives In 1984 Dr Buscaglia founded the Felice Foundation Felice pronounced Feh-LEE-Chay is an Italian word for peace and joy and incidentally Dr Buscaglias first name He established the Foundation to give special aid and attention to those who have dedicated themselves to the betterment of personkind through the dynamics of helping one another As in his experience with Wong the Foundation is structured around the dynamics of sharing and giving and influencing others to do the same the roles of helper and helped constantly interchanging Only when we give joyfully without hesitation or thought of gain can we truly know what love means Leo Buscaglia The specific purpose of the foundation is to encourage and reinforce socially contributive behaviors where the focus is clearly outside the self looking instead toward the welfare of others and the community It is directed to recognize and reward the softer side of human nature through the giver the sharer the nurturer the empathizer the sympathizer It is hoped that this will encourage a movement away from egocentricity and competitive actions to the encouragement of love interdependence and commitment Love is only love when it liberates Leo Buscaglia
