As a charity, the foundation is constantly looking for support to continue to grow. 2019 has the potential to be a year of tremendous growth for the charity and we see the need for a substantial increase in our core funding in order to respond to the opportunities that are currently emerging. In order for the charity to grow and extend its reach to as many young people as possible, there is a need for a more extensive infrastructure to help us provide support to the rapidly growing sector of yoga for young people in the UK. The money goes towards growing our network of support in areas such as administration, publicity, marketing, fundraising, operation and research support, which increasingly require professional staffing. With this core funding in place, we will be better able to serve our community, schools, and the whole UK.

HOW TO DONATE
DONATE AS YOU SHOP
Another way to help us is using Give as You Live Online. It is a free and easy way to raise money for your favourite charity, just by shopping online. You shop at your usual stores and a small amount is donated to the charity to help disadvantaged young people access yoga.
Once you’ve signed up on their site, you download a small browser addon and then each time you shop at a site they use, you click to raise funds for the charity, then shop as normal. They email you to tell you how much was raised each time.
You can also buy books and clothing from our online store. All the proceeds go to the charity.
You can also help us to raise funds to help disadvantaged young people access yoga. Each month we organise a fund-raising challenge that you can particpate in.
