2002 Send Love to USA
Date: August 17-September 29, 2002

        At the invitation of the Buddha's Light International Association, World Journal, Overseas Community Affairs Council, and IANDS (International Association for Near Death Studies), Sophia Chao (Vice President & Executive CEO), and 32 members from Mother of Love Volunteer Group visited the United States from August 17 to September 29 in 2002, during which Sophia Chao, surviving after a couple of near-death experience, shared "Go beyond life and death, love life – what life should exactly have?" 
The visiting mission delivered 32 lectures in State of North Carolina, Miami, New York, Boston, Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Each lecture was attended by about 5,000 to 20,000 people, attracting tons of audiences and causing considerable sensation and response. It is worth noticing that after the lecture in New York on August 24, unexpectedly more than 10 entrepreneurs had great resonance to the lecture, and completely changed the habit of constant work, and hence escaped the catastrophe that the World Trade Center was completely destroyed on September 11.
