BENEFITING: Stand Up Kids
If you build healthy habits when you are younger, you have a much better chance of retaining those habits as you get older. It's much easier to do something you're used to, as opposed to starting a new habit from scratch.
I believe that sitting is one of the most harmful habits we face in our modern society. Sitting wreaks havoc on your spine, kills your hip mobility, diminishes your hip and core strength, and robs us of energy.
If we can create an environment where kids stand instead of sit, we are helping those kids to build a positive, lifelong habit that will help not only their bodies, but also their minds. Not only that, but the simple act of standing and being more active means that as a society we will spend less on health care.
When I started the Members' Area, I pledged to match the membership dues of the Man Flow Yoga Brand Ambassadors, the Manbassadors, with a donation to a non-profit aligned with the goals of Man Flow Yoga.
I believe that StandUp kids is the perfect recipient for a donation, seeing as so many of us would not have to go through the physical difficulties we face now if we had been more active and less sedentary while we were younger.
Join me and help support Stand Up Kids! The fundraiser will run from March 17 until March 31.
I am personally donating $625, and for that reason I would like to raise 5x that number (a total of $3100, including my own donation) with the support of the Man Flow Yoga Community.
Donate today! There is no minimum amount, and every dollar counts.
Thank you for taking the time to consider donating, and I hope you join me in helping to support a positive movement toward ending the negative effects of sitting for our next generation!
