Break Your Heart Open: The Love Story

I never planned on becoming a poet…If I wasn’t blessed with my story, I wouldn’t be who I am today.

SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, November 28, 2016 / -- Non-profit 501(c)3, The Love Story invites the global community to view a one of kind product. For the first time ever, augmented reality technology has been incorporated into a journal! Check it out here:

The Love Story is looking to raise $25,000 and kicked off their Kickstarter campaign on November, 25, 2016. Interactive journals with unique portraits come to life with the scan of an app. These images transform into video interviews that are watched on the user’s cellphone. Journals are available in both softcover and hardcover for $25 and $35. The Love Story’s mission is to destigmatize mental illness by helping others transform their pain into passion. The journal acts as a resource for individuals to find catharsis through the sharing of stories and self exploration.

Founder, Mingjie Zhai (MJ), is an award winning educator in the inner-city schools of Los Angeles. After losing it all in 2013, she began interviewing artists about their personal transformations. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among adults ages 25-34 and the third leading cause of death among young adults ages 15-24. MJ’s unique ability to connect with youth led to the decision of incorporating augmented reality. By pairing artist inspired journaling and modern technology, The Love Story aims to demystify and destigmatize mental health. The Love Story Journal contains: 80 interviews with 40 artists, 80 journalling prompts, and 330+ beautifully illustrated pages to draw/write on.
