LIVE LOVE STORIES
We want to share more in depth stories of Lebanon on our channels. We want to create short videos of our villages, our landmarks, our culture, our people and portraits of you! The goal is to increase our mission of shedding a light on the light of Lebanon.

We think the community should be the authors of those stories. And that's why we are building this to be a community effort. As Live Love is.
As our most active Live Love ambassadors, we want to show you how much we love you by giving your stories the first priority, and turning them into 1 minute videos, authored by you, with credits in the video itself. We will spread them on @livelovebeirut, and of course they will be for you to use on your Live Love accounts and your own social media.

HOW DO WE DO THIS?
It's very easy! We just need text + photos from you, and we do the rest. We want the stories of Lebanese villages, cities, our natural sites, historical landmarks, cool architecture, people who are interesting, things you find worth sharing, and your portrait too. Check the examples below.

Example : Village Story --> Douma
Sory by @PeterGhanime Ambassador of @livelovedouma
Set in the heart of the Batroun Mountains, Douma bears all the hallmarks of a traditional Lebanese village, with its quaint houses, noise-free streets and charming souk. Douma is located around 80km from Beirut, a one-and-a-half to two-hour drive. The old souk of Douma is picture perfect. You can stroll around and pick up some local specialties, including halawa, olive oil and homemade jams. At over 1,000m above sea level, Douma offers breathtaking views and great hiking trails. Visitors can explore the nearby village of Bechaaleh, where there are olive trees dating back to thousands of years.


Example: Portrait --> Nefeh, the Bell Maker of Beit Chabeb
The bell industry began in Lebanon in the 1700s in the village of Beit Chabeb. It was founded by Youssef Ghobril, he is the first person who made a bell, and when he did, people said Youssef did good. From there, came the family name Nefeh. He taught the tradition to his children. From the 1700s till the end of the1900s there were 10 families making bells bells in Beit Chabeb. After WWI and WWII, they started slowly decreasing. Until the 2000s two or three families only were still making bells. They started dying of old age one after the other. Nefeh is the last person from the Nefeh Family still making bells. His bells are spread in the entire Middle East and in the western countries too. Bells are a symbol of Beit Chabeb and the tradition lives on.

Example: Landmark --> The Egg
Story by @RajaZakhour ambassador of @livelove.architecture
The Dome' or 'The Egg' as we call it is an iconic monument in Downtown Beirut.The Egg was commissioned as part of a modernist set of buildings in 1965, designed by architect Joseph Philippe Karam. The complex was meant to house a movie theater, a shopping mall and office spaces. The Egg itself, was the cinema. When the civil war started in 1975, the commercial center was still unfinished. The Egg and only one of the 2 towers were built. The tower was destroyed, leaving The Egg standing alone. This year, Plastik Gallery reopened The Egg to the public for the first time in 10 years, re-claiming it as a cultural space. What do you think its fate should be?
Easy, right?
