A Generous Gift…

Posted by on Nov 27, 2012 in FAMILY | 0 comments

The Candles have recieved a generous gift from recent third Kula. The Kula is a meeting and sharing of yoga instructors. Twenty yoga instructors gathered this time from  in and around Nanaimo, the Cowichan Valley and Qualicum.

At the Kula, Kelly , from Bend-Over Backwards Iyengar Yoga Studio, offered knowledge about yogic philosophy and the story of The Candles, the family of 18 orphans that we support in a small village in SW Uganda. Much support has come from the Bend-Over Backwards Yoga Studio and now other yoga instructors, studios and yogis have also lent theirs.

We want to thank all for their generous gifts of compassion and money. The money has an immediate use. Heavy rains are falling in Uganda now and the rain is getting into the Candles’ house and beds in a BIG way. Metal sheets are needed to shore up and seal the house from the downpouring of water. Thanks to you for your outpouring of care, compassion and help. The support received has already been sent to The Candles in Kabesheshe Village.

Another thank you goes to Megan Bailey of Nanaimo Yoga Sanctuary who has taken the Yama/Niyama bookmarks to her studio for sale to students of yoga. All proceeds will go directly to the Candles. We are so fortunate to be surrounded by such kindness.

As we say: Help is beautiful. Hope is necessary. Caring is everything.
