Day 18 – No Shave Yoga Event – #yogabeardsunite – First Time for Everything
I put a donation box on our front desk at the studio to help raise money for the No Shave Yoga Event. At the end of class this morning I made an announcement to the students about our fundraising class that we are holding this coming Sunday at 12pm. Someone came out and felt inspired to give and she said that it this is the first time that she has ever donated money to a cause. She said she heard me say that every dollar counts and that any expression of compassion you offer through giving could change another persons life. I felt honored that this is the cause that she felt that she is ready to ‘break the ice’ with and give to. Whether we share our time, energy, words of kindness or funds to help others makes no matter. One way we can spread peace and neutralize the chaos of hatred is to share some compassion with others in these interesting times.
No Shave Yoga Event is a group of yoga teachers who have banded together to help spread the word, grow hairy, raise money and inspire health through the practice of yoga. Our fundraising team is called Yoga Beards Unite and we aim to raise at least $1500 by the end of November. Please help us achieve our goal by donating to our team page at https://www.no-shave.org/team/yogabeardsunite. When you post on social media please tag us to show your support and share our/your story to help us in our endeavor. Together we can make a difference! @adampolhemusyoga @brianmilleryoga @davidmiliotis @gregnardi @juankgalan @nativeyoga @willduprey
