One Love Dallas is celebrating it's 6th year of bringing the yoga community together in the spirit of giving back. The North Texas Yoga community has been involved with One Love for several years and this year we want to make our biggest impact you. Join us and together we will gather on April 23rd at the AT&T, Annette Strauss Artist Square, for a mindful, meditative movement of 108 Sun Salutations. Last year, One Love, along with The Village Experience, funded a rescue center for the Samburu Girls Foundation in Kenya. The center intervenes when they hear of a young girl being married off at a young age. Early Forced Marriage is a form of slavery. It is done without the consent of the girl and ends all opportunities for an independent future. Education is stopped and girls start producing children as early as 10 years old. At Samburu Girls Home, girls are taken in, given a safe home, education and a new chance for a productive and thriving future. The Dallas Yoga community has put the wheels in motion by supplying the first phase of the home. Our goal is continue to support and see them through to the second phase: the kitchen and dining hall. Join a team and let's show our girls some love. ONE LOVE.
Whether you join us and create your own fundraising page (set a goal of $250 - it's easy to raise!) or donate to our page, you're making a huge difference in the life of a girl. You're giving her choices, freedom, and independence. Help us spread the yoga of love. Namaste!
