BENEFITING: Somaly Mam Foundation

EVENT DATE: JAN 01, 2012

DEADLINE TO GIVE: JAN 31, 2012

 

Uniting the yoga community to raise awareness and funding to put an end to sex trafficking!

 

SACREDspace Studio TN, the Yoga Freedom Project and Off the Mat NY have partnered up with The Somaly Mam Foundation (somaly.org) to create a global yoga month in January 2012 to raise awareness and funding to help bring an end to sex trafficking.

 

Somaly Mam is a former victim of sex trafficking who has to date rescued over 7,000 young girls from this atrocity. Money raised during this month will go back to the Somaly Mam Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to the eradication of sex trafficking and modern-day slavery and the empowerment of its survivors. SMF supports victim services, empowerment programs such as job skills and education, and advocacy and awareness campaigns.

This month long initiative will be a global awareness campaign. We are looking for leaders in all regions of the country/world to organize events and classes in their area and be the voice for this important cause and campaign around the world!

In NY, OTMNYC will be reaching out to about 15-20 yoga studios throughout New York to jump on board with several donation based classes, awareness campaigns, book clubs, and will support the efforts of individual teachers and advocates who will take their fundraising off the mat. The month will end with a huge 108 Sun Salutation Yoga-thon Event on January 31st.   We hope that more of our middle TN studios and community will jump on board and share their love with this project.  All Drop In proceeds automatically donated.

For more information contact the  offthematnyc@gmail.com or for middle TN, deZengo@OMTimes.com We would love to see Tennessee lit with studios who are creating change withIN & OUTward! It is going to be an inspiring month where we see just how powerful, loving, and strong our global yoga community is!

About dezengo

---------------------------------------- PERSONAL: ---------------------------------------- I am a human, daughter, woman, sister, mother, friend, lover. I have traveled and been stationary. Teacher & student simultaneously. I have lived, loved, laughed, cried, screamed, been alone and had the pleasure of feeling the molecular universal hug from God and the universe and KNOWING I am never alone! As a breast cancer survivor, I was forced to confront the enemy - and to my own amazement, it was ME! Re-evaluation on my entire life began. An introduction and immediate connection on the value of incorporating a Yoga "practice" into daily life schedule. The natural and universal philosophies to seek reconnection with ALL that is GO(o)D occurred subliminally. The healing that began within - led me to feel free to share LOVE to others. From that discovery point I have begun taking my infant steps back into the arms of a "welcoming humanity!"
