The Newton Street School in Newark has recently added yoga to the curriculum to help kids (grades 1-8) deal with some of their anger issues. Apparently, it's been a tremendous success, so much so that they're going dedicate a room in the school just for yoga.
The room, while difficult to get, is in a bit of a shambles. My Senior Youth Group decided this weekend to undertake the project of "renovating" (i.e. painting, fixing shelves, etc.).
Any help you can give is much appreciated. You can sponsor a single yoga mat, yoga blocks, yoga blankets, one wall of paint, etc. As much or as little as you like.
I personally am going to work with the youth on the room making curtains, painting, etc.
30 blocks - foam
30 yoga blankets
30 mats - SPONSORED!
Curtains installed (equipment - they will provide materials for curtains)
iPod - SPONSORED!
This is a great opportunity to do something very tangible and very good for kids who wouldn't otherwise get what they need. And it could literally cost you just $5.
Contact me with any questions. Any amount is appreciated.
If you have gently used yoga supplies we'd love to take them off your hands. Thanks!
