It’s Holiday Season and at this time of the year we always like to encourage our yogis to stay centred, stay grounded, and remember what matters most: kindness and compassion for all beings. So this year we decided to partner with Make-A-Wish Quebec, an organization whose mission is to grant wishes for children with critical illnesses.
The Make-A-Wish Quebec office is located right across the street from the studio and several of their employees are regulars in our yoga classes, so it was an opportunity to collaborate with a charitable organization literally and figuratively near and dear to our hearts.
For every class a yogi attends during the Holiday Challenge (from December 1st-23rd), Luna Yoga will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish. We will also be collecting toy gift donations for children aged 3-17 years old. Please note that the toys must be new. If you would like to gift-wrap your present we ask that you include a clear label identifying for what age it is appropriate. You can drop your gift off in our donation box at the studio.
More about Make-A-Wish…
At Make-A-Wish Quebec our mission is to grant as many wishes to children with critical illnesses. We believe that by granting their one true wish it can actually change the odds – will help take them far away from treatments, doctor visits and the stress and pain of being ill. When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope - you are part of this transformation.
