May 5 – Papa Joe Bradford, Founder of Elijah’s Heart & Inspiration for the Movie “Unconditional”

Born in a small country town west portrait_18843
of Nashville, Joe Bradford grew up
in great poverty along with his grandmother, mother and sister. He rarely heard from his father. As the years passed, Joe’s life became increasingly turbulent – experiencing the entrapment of poverty, nearly dying from snakebite, facing time in prison for computer hacking and fighting a deadly kidney disease, but it was from these very struggles that he grew a heart for the poor and oppressed.

In 2005, Papa Joe and his wife Denise founded Elijah’s Heart, a non-profit organization, whose mission is to show love and bring aid to underprivileged children and their families. Today, they are actively uniting with others throughout the country to raise awareness about desperate situations in our own nation and to inspire a great movement of love in action.

Papa Joe’s life is the inspiration behind the feature-length film, Unconditional (national release date: September 21, 2012.) Also serving as a co-producer, Joe was involved in the intricate process of adapting his life story for the big screen. Currently, he is traveling around the nation as an ambassador for the film and its purpose of love.
