You Made History with OneLifeLA!

Thank you for the amazing show of support and enthusiasm all 15,000 of you brought to Downtown LA for OneLife LA! Thank you for helping make OneLife LA an event to be remembered! You made history with us!

It was a day filled with inspiring stories, musical performances and blessings. Keynote speaker Ryan Bomberger shared his personal story of adoption into a home with 13 children, his driving inspiration for the work he does as the Chief Creative Officer of The Radiance Foundation, an organization he co-founded with his wife Bethany. Speaker Angela Guandon offered her testimony as a survivor of human trafficking, and Brandi Moore shared how, through the support of mentors she met through Kidsave, she survived an attempted suicide after living in 25 foster homes, where she was placed following a broken relationship with an abusive mother.

Other speakers included Rick Smith, better known as Noah’s Dad, who began a blog to do “something really unique by telling the story of our son’s life. We believe that he has a story worth sharing; the story that all children (regardless of disability) are so worth loving. The story that Down Syndrome is ok.”
