“The Empire State of Mind”
Meditation Marathon NY Team!
For the previous three years we have participated in the annual fundraiser for EnlightenNext Inc., a not-for-profit 501(c)3, by meditating all together for up to 48 hours and we appreciate all of the generous donations we have received from so many of you.
Meditation is a powerful practice that yields many benefits, one such benefit is being able to see clearly and respond, particularly during challenging times.
Which is why, on Dec 9th, instead of meditating for our marathon, our NY Team will be focusing our time, energy, and spirit on helping rebuild and restore areas of New York devastated by Superstorm Sandy.
We’ve already had team members out working with relief efforts which have included hauling and clearing items from damaged homes in Staten Island, delivering food and supplies to those without power in the Lower Eastside, and Far Rockaway and working with a medical ground team to assist the elderly with medical needs in Red Hook and Coney Island.
Our relief efforts will culminate on the Marathon Day, Sunday Dec 9, where our entire NY Team will volunteer with the Occupy Sandy relief initiative and bring aid to areas that are still in need.
How you can help:
- Join us on Dec 8 and 9, Saturday & Sunday (contact)
- Give to the following relief efforts
- Give to the NY Team or a Team member to support EnlightenNext
Thanks for your support, it feels good to give!
