The events that Love 2 Yêu organizes include fundraisers such as the Love 2 Yêu Family Fun Day Carnival, as well as goodwill trips to Vietnam. Love 2 Yêu has also partnered with other organizations—such as Abandoned Little Angels, Faith in Christ Ministries and AASuccess—on select events. Some of those events are featured below.
Love 2 Yêu periodically takes goodwill trips to Vietnam to not only see firsthand how projects are benefiting from current donations and sponsorships, but to also assess if there are any other needs that must be met. This enables us to preemptively assist before situations become dire. In addition, the trips allow an opportunity to immerse into Vietnamese culture. To see some images from trips to date, please go to the Photo Gallery or click here.

Family Fun Day Carnival Fundraiser 2017
Created in 2016, Love 2 Yêu's Family Fun Day raises money for our projects with hundreds of guests from a variety of different communities for a day full of fun, music, food, games, activities, and most importantly, for a good cause. In 2017, it was held on Saturday, October 28th, 2017 at Lake Fairfax Park in Reston, VA, with a Halloween theme. In addition, we partnered with AASuccess, a non-profit in Falls Church, VA to host the event. To see images from the event, please go to the Photo Gallery or click here.
