In a previous post I mentioned that I am fundraising for Living Yoga’s Yogathon. I will be fundraising for Living Yoga for all of April.
I am also fundraising for Rose Haven. I will be walking on Mother’s Day with members of my Beaverton Huddle. We will join hundreds of people for this Mother’s Day to honor the special women in our lives while raising funds to empower women and children of Rose Haven experiencing homelessness, abuse and other disruptive life events.
Rose Haven fills a unique niche as one of the very few shelters available for women and children during the daytime, when they have nowhere else to go for safety and support.
Rose Haven provides basic services that meet their immediate needs for safety, food, clothing, hygiene products, etc. They also offer support to help them address longer-term challenges related to employment, housing, medical and legal issues.
You can donate to my fundraising page, directly to me (and I will get it to my fundraising page) or you can join my team and walk with us on Mother’s Day.
Living Yoga is a nonprofit in Portland, which is changing lives by fostering healing and resilience in vulnerable and marginalized communities through trauma-informed yoga.
Living Yoga brings trauma-informed yoga classes to prisons, youth centers, addiction facilities and to people in the community who would not otherwise have access to yoga.
You can find my Living Yoga Yogathon fundraising page here.
