Meet the One Circle

Bellevue LifeSpring’s One Circle supports Bellevue LifeSpring’s mission and strives to build a stronger community through services that help provide food, clothing, education, and emergency assistance for children and their families living in Bellevue. One Circle was established in 2017 by Founding Chairs Anu Jain, Randi Brazen, and Trish Carpenter.

Who We Are

One Circle is comprised of compassionate circle members driven to enrich and make a positive impact in the lives of Bellevue kids and families. We are current and retired business professionals, owners, stay-at-home parents, entrepreneurs, and philanthropists.

Collectively, we are devoted to sustained volunteer service and committed to sharing our passion, time, financial support, and heart to provide much-needed assistance in our community. And throughout the process, we build friendships and have a great time together! 

What We Do

One Circle members initiate, plan, and host fun and informative events to support Bellevue families, focusing on the growing population and needs of kids facing hunger and homelessness. These events raise both awareness and funds to support the efforts of Bellevue LifeSpring.

Past One Circle events include food and wine gatherings and health and wellness symposiums. We have supported families during the holiday season, commandeered food and clothing drives, packed hundreds of snacks for school kids, and helped launch college students with dorm supplies.

Our One Heart/One Community fundraiser in February 2020 was a high-energy evening filled with food, fun, and dancing at Central Bar + Restaurant, raising a whopping $30,000. We took One Heart to another level in February 2023 at Overlake Golf and Country Club, raising over $180,000! Together, we make it happen, and together, we make a difference because no child should ever have to experience hunger or homelessness. 

When, Where We Meet, and How to Reach Us

We gather in the home of one of our members on the second Tuesday of every month (September to June) from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

One Circle is currently led by Circle Chairs Randi Brazen, Trish Carpenter, and Yasmin Chou.
