Give Back Yoga’s goal is to place 10,000 Yoga For Veterans Toolkits (developed by expert teachers with years of experience in working with Veterans) this year into the hands of our brothers and sisters affected by post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, and other stress-related illnesses. We thought we might be able to help out… This will jumpstart GBYF in 2014 and expand exponentially the services to Veterans in years to come. Marc Titus, Founder & Director, Sedona Yoga Festival
Fundraising at crowdrise.com will be open through the Festival in February. Together we will raise $50,000 for 10,000 Yoga Tollkits for Veterans!
