Come experience Vancouver's original sound-powered yoga experience SOUND SALUTATIONS Reggae Yoga on November 8th and feel extra Irie about it as we're donating 100% of the proceeds towards hurricane relief/rebuilding efforts in the Caribbean island of Dominica.
After the devastating destruction of Hurricane Maria, a Category 5 storm system which hit the Eastern Caribbean on September 18th 2017, the small island of Dominica is in dire need of support and aid. The island is still without power or running water. The food supply has been disrupted and will be in a state of emergency for months to come.
At this time, allies and Dominican family members based in Vancouver are collecting goods, and funds to ship a container of donations to support Dominicans in their survival, cleanup and re- build. All goods will be sent to community leaders directly for distribution as a means to encourage local leadership as well as to ensure those who need it most are not forgotten.
As the local economy has been greatly affected, donations of goods are more helpful than funds at this time. Any funds raised will be put directly to shipping costs and to purchase high priority goods.
