THE STORY:

Yoga changes lives. Trust me. I know because it changed mine. And I'm not living in a war-stricken country. I believe in the transformative power of yoga and want to share it with people who are suffering. 

This is my birthday month. This year, I have a very special, very specific birthday wish.

I want peace in Israel and Palestine.

Whoa, I just heard what that sounded like. Let me sum up: I'm an ambassador for the Olive Tree Yoga Foundation. This July, I'm joining its crew in Israel and Palestine to bring Baptiste Power Yoga to refugees affected by the ongoing war.  And I need your help. 

This mission is serendipitous for me. For years, I have studied the conflict between Israel and Palestine (it was even my major in college) and, pre-yoga, was en route to a law and diplomacy degree. Needless to say, that didn't happen. But the conflict in the Middle East remained a passion.

Cut to 2012, training at Level 2 with Baron Baptiste, where I learned of OTYF. Jaw on the floor, I couldn't believe life was giving me an opportunity to marry my love of yoga and need to help the Middle East. I knew what I needed to do next: say "yes."


So I need you.  Any dollar amount helps hundreds of people and no donation is too small.  If you want to learn more, visit the Olive Tree website or you can see my ambassador page here.

So please don't get me that bottle of Veuve or a lululemon gift card. Instead, let's change the world, together.
