THE STORY:

THANKS FOR MAKING OUR FUNDRAISER A HUGE SUCCESS! Although the Challenge is over, you can still help Meghan's Foundation help veterans. CLICK HERE TO DONATE at http://meghansfoundation.org or mail a check to: Meghan’s Foundation, P.O. Box 407, Solebury, PA 18963. Thanks for your support!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The mission of Meghan's Foundation (Meghan Shortt Wilent Foundation) is to create awareness and develop trauma-sensitive yoga and meditation programs for veterans experiencing symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.

Veterans who have attended the Foundation's free yoga classes include men and women from ages 26 to 75, who served in Vietnam, Bosnia, Somalia, Iraq and Afghanistan. They're experiencing better sleep and concentration, an ability to calm themselves when confronted with flashbacks, and generally an improved quality of life. This is consistent with studies showing that yoga and meditation are effective tools for alleviating PTSD symptoms.

We originally started our fundraiser to get sponsors for our 10K run at the 34th Annual Revolutionary Run on July 4, 2014. As of May 27, we had generated an awesome $2,875 from lots of generous folks. We are still running the 10K, as promised. But now our fundraiser is also competing to win a big donation from the Veterans Charity Challenge. The veterans charity that raises the most through noon on July 3 will get a $20,000 prize! This means that your donation can help Meghan's Foundation in a really big way.

Please help us win the Challenge by making a donation of $20 or more, so Meghan's Foundation can help many more veterans in PA, NJ and beyond. Donated funds are primarily used for renting classroom space, hiring teachers with special training in trauma sensitivity, and buying vets their own yoga mats and instruction manuals so they can develop a daily practice at home. Every donation, no matter how big or small, will help this great cause.

For more information on the Foundation's mission and programs, please click here to visit their website. For more information on the Veterans Charity Challenge, click their logo at the top of the webpage or feel free to email Veterans@CrowdRise.com.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING MEGHAN'S FOUNDATION HELP OUR VETERANS!
