Teddy K

Founder/CEO, Designer

Ted Komacek (affectionately known as Teddy K) is an educator, a social do-gooder, a businessman, a singer-songwriter, and most proudly a father. He holds a masters degree in education and a bachelor of education with a K-12 certification.

When in cities, one of Teddy's favorite things to do is walk and talk with the homeless. Connecting with those who are less fortunate continually motivates him to give back. He has volunteered with grassroots, community-based charities, Habitat for Humanity, and was a Big Brother for years (with Big Brothers, Big Sisters of America.)

Teddy's Favorite Quote: “The birds still remember what we have forgotten…that The World is meant to be celebrated.” – Terry Tempest Williams

Teddy's Secret Tidbit: Loves to watch reruns of "Full House" - for hours on end... Don't tell anybody! It'll make him blush.

Danelle LaPenta

Leader of Operations

Danelle enjoys all that comes with leading LoveHumanity.com's operations. However, what gives her the most joy is being a loving wife and mother.

Danelle is mom to four amazing children. Her twins were born premature and spent 144 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Danelle now spends considerable time fundraising and giving back to charities and local NICUs to support parents and babies in need.

Danelle's Favorite Quote: “Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don't give up.” – Anne Lamott

Danelle's Secret Tidbit: Her favorite time has always been story time before bed. She finds the stories written by Sandra Boynton to be more entertaining than her own kids do! Shhh…she’s reading one right now.

Angela Armour

Business Support Assistant

Angela believes we can all learn from each other and build bridges for healthy connection with one another.

She has taught hula hoop-dance to people of all ages, and loves to connect through creative expressions such as playing music, freeform dancing, and the healing arts. She also participates in a theatre project as well as musical fundraising events supporting bullying prevention and suicide prevention.

Angela’s Favorite Quote: "If you're always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be." – Maya Angelou

Angela’s Secret Tidbit: She loves to sing little ditties from her favorite movies and shows. These little songs she hums and sings all day actually help free her up to be herself, and to overcome her shyness. She does take requests and complies on cue with Teddy’s favorite, “Somewhere Over The Rainbow.”

Milania LaPenta

Leader of Love

Danelle's daughter - Milania, visits the office to make sure we are smiling while we work. Milania was born at 23 weeks gestation weighing 1lb 2.9oz. Despite having been through so much, Milania is always happy…a true beacon of love and hope that touches everyone she meets. Teddy refers to her as "The Princess of Pure Love."

Milania's Favorite Quote: “I want something to eat.”

Milainia's Secret Tidbit: She secretly knows that love is all that matters! She often wonders when all of us adults will “just get it” ~ and just start loving each other. Five year olds are oh so wise in so many ways.
