FINAL UPDATE: We will not be able to offer as many scholarships as we hoped but we have got one scholarship from our sponsor, Sun Spirit Yoga studio, and it is still a chance to get the second one. We just need $50 more. HELP us make the retreat available for another person. And he/she will share your love with the animals at the rescue.
This is truly a special place
that offers a rich spiritual experience for all who come here.Jana Ekdahl, Seattle,WA
Do you know that every year thousands of animals are being killed in research labs because they become “useless” after years of testing? Help me support Kindness Ranch in their mission to save lives of the pets. We will promote the sanctuary while practicing yoga and volunteering there.
My name is Elena. Animals have been members of my family for many years and we love volunteering for animal shelters. I am also a yoga instructor. Yoga can help you at any age, shape and health condition. It teaches you to be mindful about your body and about the impact you have to the world around you. This is why I’ve decided to organize the Kindness Ranch Yoga Retreat. I believe that by helping animals we can enrich human society.
Kindness Ranch is a sanctuary for research animals. They provide roof, food and loving care for dogs, cats, horses, sheep while trying to find new homes for them.
During the weekend the Retreat participants will practice yoga, learn about the ranch and help with pets’ care. The program includes yoga with dogs, Reiki, walking meditation, Bhaktti flow and cooking competition plus plenty of time to hang out with animals and go hiking.
I want to raise money to promote the sanctuary and its animals. But I also want to make the Retreat affordable for everybody.
The money raised will be used for scholarships and those who pledge $100 will participate in choosing lucky recipients at the end of August. If we exceed the goal the rest of the funds will be used to produce 2013 calendar and to create short videos about each pet to be posted on YouTube. This will increase their chances to find new houses and for the sanctuary - to host and heal more animals.
I would appreciate every contribution. So don't get discouraged if you don't have cash available! Please, share the information among your friends and media. Contact me if you have skills which are beneficial for our Retreat or the Sanctuary. Let's do it together!
It’s YOUR chance to make a difference in a life of a person and an animal.
If you want to devote your donation to the memory of your loved animal, let me know. I'd love to post their photo on our webpage, Facebook page and the calendar (please check the perks for that).
