My very good friend Jason Patrick aka the Bearded Yogi (who both serves some of the best coffee at La Colombe in NYC and is also responsible for introducing me to Modo/Moksha Yoga, which has done wonders for my figure) is organizing this fantastic fundraiser/birthday party in mid-February at the Breslin/Ace Hotel to benefit God's Love We Deliver. GLWD delivers meals completely free of charge to those in the New York area who are living with debilitating illnesses (and they feed their loved ones/caretakers as well). I can't attend Jason's birthday since I'll be off the continent, but GLWD does some seriously amazing work and Jason has put a lot of effort into spreading the word about their good deeds.
I've created this fundraising page and it would be great if you all could pitch in to help Jason meet his goal of raising $100,000 for GLWD -- this equates to 10,000 meals for those most in need. All of the money you donate goes straight to the organization, and I encourage this mitzvah without reservations. PLEASE GIVE and feel free to visit the #BigLoveWknd Crowdrise page to make your own fundraising page for GLWD to share with your own friends and loved ones.
