Happy Monday, community! I thought i would share some deeply inspiring information about a charity I had only just learned about quite by accident. As every client has a story, last Tuesday I had a more expansive conversation with a very dedicated client. As discussions often wind around and branch off into uncharted territory, this one was no different. Somehow, we got onto the subject of a non-profit that has been in existence for some time–but is truly extraordinary! This client is a writer and in 1999 wrote a published piece on the Homeless Children’s Education Fund which was founded by Dr. Joseph Lagana. There are MANY non-profits we know, but this one in particular really targets a vitally important and often forgotten demographic. I have provided a link to this outstanding charity that many may include in their cadre of non-profits to donate to. The greater their visibility, the greater their reach! Aleita Hermanowski is the author and she has her own amazing story along with mad writing skills! (see link below)
So, how about we connect the dots to the above Ms. Hermanowski #1…yes, there is another! Serendipity would have it that as I learned about this charity, I also learned about Ms. Hermanowski #2 IN PRINT AGAIN!!!! We have a new business in Etna that is now open….
So that means that we have to make some dates yogis!!!!!
I want to thank Aleita for introducing this charity and allowing me to reissue this information. It’s old but it’s still accurate and maybe some of you can really actively be a part of this organization, as I know so many teachers (former and current) who are always wanting to further their passion/mission where our youth are concerned. The census can’t even capture accurate numbers but it would blow our minds if we knew what the real-time stats were of those that were homeless and in a state of “transition”!
And the least important focus of this update is that i am subbing Abby Ritter’s yoga 1 and gentle in squirrel hill this thursday morning at Schoolhouse Yoga (www.schoolhouseyoga.com). There are those who are interested and those who are not and there you have it!!
To the yogis I know are going through some absolutely obscene chaos–you are held in many ways. May you find strength.
We shall hope for a meeting at the park on Saturday! It is looking encouraging :))) Think well and be well!!
