A yoga teacher gave me the enlightened advice that when I'm feeling helpless to go help someone in need. When I'm feeling sad to make it my mission to make someone happy. She told me that if I want to feel a certain way, I can get access to it by providing it for someone else first. She was so right. This is a universal truth.
The mass shootings, political turmoil, and natural disasters that we're experiencing has left my heart in broken pieces on the floor, and it's tempting (for me) to feel totally helpless.
Do you know what's not making a difference in the world or helping to put back the broken pieces? Me sitting around sulking and feeling helpless. It's not making a difference and it's making me feel like crap! So I've decided to take my teacher's advice and start a mission to help people.
I want to help people all over the world, but I'm going to start right here in Charleston. I'm inspired by a local homeless shelter, One80 Place and I have a personal mission to raise $4000 which will provide urgently needed items and move-in kits for families that need assistance. One80 Place offers women and families the opportunity to "begin again" with the support of people like you and me. They also offer food, housing, counseling, employment, education, legal services, and more.
I believe that community and connection is the medicine this world needs and I'm ready to take action.
If you'd like to support my mission there are a couple ways you can get involved:
1) Purchase one of the above prints via Fine Art America. The two digital art prints were created by @cosmiccollage using one of my yoga images from Elegant + Bold a collaboration with @_cebulka_ (link in bio 👆🏽)
*%50 of the proceeds of these prints will go towards providing urgently needed items and move-in kits for One80 Place.
2) Attend my very special 90 minute yoga class at @wearemissionyoga on November 11th, $30, 4:00 - 5:30.
*All proceeds will go towards providing urgently needed items and move-in kits for One80 Place.
3) Donate to my Go Fund Me account. *All proceeds will go towards providing urgently needed items and move-in kits for One80 Place.
