Karma for Kids
There’s still time to register for Karma for Kids, a fundraiser that helps children with cancer through the practice of Yoga. Until December 1st, yogis around the country are pledging to complete 15, 30, 60, or 90 yoga classes to raise a minimum of $1000 for Camp Okizu in northern California and Camp Adventure on New York’s Long Island.
Every summer and fall, the camps invite children with cancer, their siblings and families to enjoy traditional activities like swimming, talent shows, and nature hikes in a safe, welcoming environment where campers can make friends and build self-confidence. Upon registering, K4K participants receive a “good karma” card to help them keep track of classes attended, which can be done at any studio or even at home (on the honor system). Registrants are also invited to social events and classes at sponsoring studios, restaurants, and clubs, which makes it easy to explore new styles of yoga, try out different instructors, and meet other activists. The top fundraiser will even win a cruise for two to a tropical destination—which is almost as exciting as enhancing one’s own physical and spiritual well-being while making a positive change in a child’s life. Find out more and register by November 15th at karmaforkids.com.
