What is the Yoga Aid World Challenge?
Yoga Aid Challenge is an international fundraising event with the purpose of raising funds for charity whilst sharing the wonderful joys of yoga. Since the first Yoga Aid Challenge, The Yoga Aid events have raised over $1.3 million for charities throughout the world. In 2012 Yoga Aid is seeking an even more ambitious goal in the form of an international ‘yoga-relay,’ uniting the world in a wave of yogic connectedness on September 9th. A new event will begin every fifteen minutes, starting in Sydney Australia, the Yoga Aid World Challenge will travel around the world through 30+ countries at 200+ events, ending in Los Angeles at sundown. The goal is to raise $1 million for charities around the world. All you need to do is to sign up for free two-hour yoga classes, select a charity to support, then ask your friends and family to make a contribution on their behalf. Their reward is to participate in a great yoga class with the knowledge that they have contributed to making the world a better place.
