Live Styve Saeboe died on her 8th birthday, 24th March 2006. Live had a brain injury that gave her many and great challenges. The last three years of her life she was linked up to the Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential (also called the Doman Institute) in Philadelphia, USA. Through close follow-up and intensive stimulation she made great progress and reached goals that most people thought were beyond reach.
The values and the perspectives on the human being, the energy and courage which made her parents making use of the method, is still there, along side the grief and missing of their child. Establishing a foundation, named after Live, 8 years old, is not meant to nurture the grief and the missing of a child, but to continue and enhance the commitment and make use of the competence gained to benefit others as well.
We will help people step forward

Through information and attitude-building work the foundation will inspire individuals and the community appreciatin the value of each human being and the resources he/she represents, and to do what is needed to let every human being become what he/she is.

Establishing of the Live 8 Foundation
Throughout the Autumn of 2006 the Interim Board of the Foundation has worked on the vision, aims and statutes of the foundation. In order to register, the foundation needs to raise NOK 100.000. The Interim Board will challenge individuals, societies, foundations and local companies to make a contribution.
The local Live 8 concert 28th April 2006 laid the financial foundation. A share of the income of the concert has been spent on covering the concert costs, the logo and establishing the web site. Future income will be spent on the running of the foundation, accomplishing events and development of resource material.
The Board will offer an opportunity of annual sponsorship after the foundation has been registered.
