If you’ve been following my journey, you know that my big dream is to open a yoga hostel on a Greek island where I will teach yoga, house travelers, and host a refugee family.
This July, I will take my first steps in making this happen! I am headed to the Sporades Islands where I will be island hopping in search of my magical yoga island! After island hopping around, I will travel to the island of Chios to teach yoga with the FEOX Rescue Team.
There are currently 172,000 stranded refugees on the Greek islands alone. This excludes the refugees throughout the EU and the ones who are on their way. They have come from a world of war with absolutely nothing. Most have lost loved ones or witnessed loved ones pass. Some are only children. They don’t have a roof over their head. They have a tent. No clothing, no food, nothing.
My heart hurts for this entire situation and I have felt so helpless, not knowing what to do. I’ve meditated for many days on what I can do and what WE as a community can do for the refugees.
So here it is:
Between now and July 15th I will be accepting donations to help the refugee situation.
ALL of the proceeds will go directly to helping them when I arrive in Chios.
♦Buying supply to give to the refugees (hygiene products, clothing, blankets, yoga mats, etc.)
♦Providing a space for anyone to yoga, meditate, and be present for the current situation.
The goal is to raise $1000 by July 15th. I think we can easily make this happen!
To make this easier on YOU, I created a donation button (see below) for this cause. All you have to do is click and donate.
If you can’t donate today, but something about this cause resonates with you, share it (see below) with a friend.
Lastly, THANK YOU! Thank you for following my journey, opening your heart, and holding the space with me.
