Our vision is a world where every child is safe and loved and free from harm.
I am so happy to finally introduce to the world: Yoga Girl Foundation! Co-founded together with my mom it’s an initiative that holds a huge piece of our hearts. Last November a horrible case of child abuse happened here on the island. We lost two young, innocent souls, only 3 and 5 years old, at the hands of their mom and stepfather. I will hold Eugene and Rishandroh in my heart for as long as I live. With their deaths, the nation-wide, longstanding issue of child abuse was uncovered. Knowing just how prevalent abuse toward children is keeps me up at night💔 I will dedicate the rest of my life to make a change if I can. We HAVE to help children already suffering, and support mothers in need to prevent situations like these from happening in the first place.
The Yoga Girl® Foundation supports women and children who suffer the consequences of trauma, injustice, abuse and poverty. We provide emotional, financial and medical aid to support healing and empower growth.
Our first cause is fighting child abuse in Aruba. Please follow @yogagirlfoundation to walk this path with us and help provide aid for children in need.
We are working on our dedicated website and are finalizing the international branches of the foundation. Thanks to #businessforchange and making use of #mindfulads earlier this year we were able to donate a whopping $33,000 USD to the foundation on its opening day😳😍 - thank you ALL for supporting our (new, and sort of odd) marketing initiatives here on social media!
10% of every product purchase on yogagirl.com goes directly to the foundation. Through Yoga Girl® we hope to provide sustainable support to the projects we aid, rather than relying on donations from the public alone.
There is so much work to be done. So many children need our help. I’m so happy we are “officially” getting started (although we have been doing this work since November of last year). This is for Eugene and Rishandroh. For every child that goes to bed at night feeling unsafe. For every mother that needs help but doesn’t know where to turn.
This is for you.
