What are you fighting for?!
I'm taking a stand and ready to rock it out!! Who's with me?!
Help me help others in this years
Gather. Give. Empower! Campaign!
This year we're fighting for those who can't quite fight for themselves yet...children! There's a list of essentials the Detroit Children's Hospital needs and I'm ready to fill it! Who's with me?! Let's empower those who need it most!!
"Play allows children to express how they are feeling, escape from daily stresses and socialize with others who may be experiencing similar situations. Developmentally appropriate toys and games are essential to providing children with opportunities for play. They serve an important therapeutic function by bringing a sense of joy and normalcy into the life of a hospitalized child. Individuals or groups can help by following these recommendations when donating toys."
Let's gather the goodies from now until December the 20th . I will be collecting them at our Yoga in the Park location at the East Boat Launch Kensington Metro Park between 5:00-5:30 that Tuesday, then heading off to Downtown Detroit to pass them out Thursday December 22. If you would like to donate, participate, or have any questions at all please Contact Me Here.
Can't make it out to donate but still want to be apart of the giving? No worries click below to donate funds that will be used towards getting items on the list. Let's make this season the best on yet for them! Let's give hope and sunshine!

Together we Can Empower Each Other make the world a better Place!!! Let's fight with Love and Smiles instead of weapons and hate.
Be Strong. Be You. Be Empowered!!!
