Each week, a Percentage of our ZOOM class donations will go to one of the organizations:
St Jude’s Research Hospital opened in 1962, thanks to the vision and generosity of Danny Thomas. No family has ever had to pay for their children to be served there.
Dance for Parkinson’s (led by my friend, colleague, and mentor David Leventhal), is offering free, unlimited access to up to live, group Zoom-based classes each week, supporting people around the world who wish to keep dancing at home when local group classes are unavailable.
The International Rescue Committee is a global humanitarian aid, relief, and development nongovernmental organization. Due to Covid-19, IRC is providing lifesaving programs to vulnerable communities in over 40 countries worldwide, including the United States. If you are a lover of Shakespeare, click this link to hear actors beautifully sharing the Bard’s rallying cry for all of humanity, which hundreds of years ago, still rings true with the great work of the IRC:
Berkshire Food Project
Located in North Adams, Massachusetts, Berkshire Food Project has fed those in need since 1987. Covid has resulted in many Berkshire business shut downs and job losses - including Kripalu, where 450 people (myself included) have lost their jobs. Years before Covid came along, five hundred Berkshire residents per week were served. Now those numbers are far greater, helped by the terrific people who volunteer their time at such a worthy charity.

Discovering My Purpose is a charitable organization that serves at-risk teens by providing them with a program to help them learn more about who they are, what they love to do, and what they are good at. These three things add up to youth who live happier, more meaningful lives. At-risk youth who have experienced trauma are more vulnerable during these challenging times. DMP is donating their online class to help boost resilience and calm for these teens during these times of crisis. You are invited to learn more about the work they do and the power of purpose.
