Love Unlimited was founded in 2011. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization focused on supplying poor and needy children in Jamaica from Pre-K – 5th grade with school supplies for their upcoming school year. We are helping enrich the lives of underprivileged youth in Jamaica so they become successful educated leaders who end the cycle of poverty and preserve the world with love.
Since 2012, our free annual LOVE U Camp in Brown's Town, St. Ann, Jamaica provides arts and crafts, bible lessons, sports activities and inspiration for the youth. On the last day of camp we distribute school supplies to all our campers and textbook scholarships to our 4.0 GPA campers. We strive to motivate, inspire and teach the youth that with an education, hardwork, a positive mindset and most importantly putting God first, you can be successful.

Our mission is to create successful educated leaders who end the cycle of poverty and preserve the world with love. Through our week long camp the youth are inspired through bible verses and a camp theme which promotes self love. We believe in an unlimited philosophy of life. No child should have mental limitations because of their economic status. If all children are mentally empowered along with a hand to help them succeed academically, we could end the cycle of poverty.
When children in underdeveloped countries succeed academically it is a great achievement. Our Dillon Mott Scholars are youth who receive a 4.0. GPA in their spring term at school. Many of these children do not have a computer at home. They walk to school and sit in a class with no AC and still work hard in their subjects. At our first camp in 2012 we had 9 scholars. In 2017 we awarded 51 campers with their scholars achievement. Each scholar is given a textbook scholarship to help provide them with textbooks for the following year. Textbooks are not free in Jamaica. This award is named after the founders' grandfather, Mr. Dilllon Mott, who was a community teacher in Orange Hill, Brown's Town, St. Ann, Jamaica.
Every year at camp all the campers of the five age groups perform their group song. They also are given an opportunity to perform an individual talent through poetry, song, dance or drama. We believe in giving the youth a time to share what they love unlimited.
Our 8th annual camp will be in honor of our founder's daughter, Caveri Marley. Caveri was a light that will be in our hearts forever. Her warm spirit and infectious smile made every camp special.
Every year we implement a theme to motivate the youth to have great character. This year we will focus on VICTORY and how we have won the race of life already because we have life in Christ.
Please follow our social networks for exact dates and times for camp registration. It will be the week before camp begins at Brown's Town Model Basic School in Brown's Town, St. Ann. LOVE U Camp is a free event to the community and registration is first come first serve. We have 40 spots available in each of our five age groups and 25 spots for our Jr. Love Team. Our past Dillon Mott Scholars who are now in high school are given first choice to be a Jr. Love Team volunteer.
Originally born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, Teana was exposed to giving back and volunteering through various mission trips internationally throughout her teens. She also had the privilege of teaching vacation bible school during the summertime when she was in high school. At the age of 7 she took her first plane ride by herself to St. Ann, Jamaica to spend the summer with her grandfather. Thereafter, she spent many summers in Jamaica learning her culture, the dialect, the way of life and most notably the importance of God. It was these trips that shaped her love for giving back. Teana graduated on the Dean’s List from Florida Southern College with a B.A. in Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations. She moved to Miami in 2007. She is a mother who proudly embraces her background as her parents and grandparents are Jamaican. Her summer vacation trip to Jamaica in 2011 touched her heart in a different way when she saw the need for help with obtaining an education and when she returned, Love Unlimited was founded. In her free time she loves to dance, listen to music and perfect the art of taking pictures.
Teana’s heart on Love Unlimited
“I am grateful to have founded and be a part of an organization that is improving the lives of children through generosity. Education is the key to any door and is the foundation of any goal. To develop a love for learning in young children is to instill hope in our world. There is no greater love than to be able to share love! Our footsteps determine our world and establishing this organization allows our hearts and yours to change lives and change the cycle of poverty.”

“My decision to get involved with Love Unlimited was easy… I’m a mom, I’ve been to Jamaica and I was overwhelmed by the unity, love and oneness that symbolize the island. For this reason, helping children in Jamaica grow into brilliant citizens of the world was natural.”

Sally’s heart on Love Unlimited
“Children are the foundation of our future and it is important for them to be equipped with proper tools for learning both academically and morally. I feel Love Unlimited is a charity that will pave the way for the children to achieve their full potential. The love that they will experience through this foundation will encourage them to be strong and confident individuals.”
Deserted by her mother as a toddler, Debbie was placed in a place of safety. This was how she came to be raised by her grandmother, Ms. Ivy Mott. "Mama" as she was affectionately called was the apple of her eyes. She would take Debbie to Zion Church on Sundays. As time went by Debbie got to understand the real meaning of God and love, and realized that loving meant sharing. You cannot love without sharing. Her grandmother taught her love, moral standards, values and attitudes. She lives by her example. She was LOVE! Debbie is a past student of the Orange Hill Basic School, Brown’s Town Primary, The Westwood High, Brown’s Town Community College, St. Monica’s Commercial College, Runaway Bay H.E.A.R.T. Trust NTA and Divine Nursing College. As a child she can remember being taught to share. Even when she was having meals she would divide it into two portions. One for her and the other for Jesus. She has always felt the need to share. During primary school she would share her lunch with friends who were less fortunate. It was in high school that this great desire to do more came. She would give her lunch money every day to a little boy who she met on the road to school. He was begging lunch money on the road every morning. She did not like to see him begging so she told him that she would give him lunch money if he stops begging and he did. Since then she has been giving not just in kind but in deed as well. She gives out of nothing. The little you do means so much in someone’s heart. It hurts her to see people who are in a position to help someone close their hearts of compassion. In her free time she loves to dance and sing with her six children and enjoy a good ice cream.
Debbie's heart on Love Unlimited
" When Love Unlimited began and I was asked to be a volunteer, there was no second thought. A born leader, I immediately took charge. Anything to help shape the lives of children, I am on board. Whatever task I am given I go the extra mile. Being a mother I am always a teacher! I am BIG on EDUCATION!! I teach academics, life lessons, life skills, moral standards and values. By my example my children have followed, giving back to society as well. For the world to change, you have to be the change! Change the mindset of these children. Empower them! Go make a difference and touch someone’s heart! Encourage their minds and motivate them! It can be achieved! Don’t forget to love them unlimited as GOD is LOVE!!! "

Larry's heart on Love Unlimited
“ I believe in mentoring young minds and showing as well as encouraging them that anything is possible regardless of race or location.”
Our 25 strong, confident and intelligent Love Team volunteers are made of women who are mothers, grandmothers, aunts and teachers. They all want to see the youth in their community and in all of Jamaica reach their full potential and be successful. Many have been with us since we began in 2012. Some have children who attend LOVE U Camp and many have children at camp who are or were Dillon Mott Scholars. These women are to be applauded for giving up their time every summer to ensure that the youth have a week full of love and fun. They are world changers.
The Jr. Love Team began in 2016 after past campers who were over the age limit still wanted to be apart of camp. We decided to give past Dillon Mott Scholars and past campers who exemplified great character an opportunity to give back to their community.
Many of our Jr. Love Team volunteers are in high school and can attain community service hours through their volunteer efforts at camp. We love having a group of teenagers who were once campers now helping. It is truly love coming full cirlce. These volunteers also receive school supply kits for their upcoming school year.
The Jr. Love Team is paired with each of the 5 groups at camp. They help prepare daily arts and crafts, organize sports activites and prepare snack time. They also have an opportunity to create their own crafts just as the campers do each day. Every morning before camp begins they setup the camp site and every afternoon they clean up the classrooms and sports area. In 2017 we created a futbol match day for the Jr. Love Team boys after camp. These youths have made LOVE U Camp more successful through their helping hand.
