Seeing the tragic picture of the little boy on the beach this morning saddened me beyond belief as i’m sure it did everyone, and made me start to research what i could do to help.
As well as signing petitions to make the government realise that we should be doing more and allowing more refugees into the country i also found the Migrant Offshore Aid Station http://www.moas.eu/ who are in the waters saving lives on a daily basis.
I want to try and raise money rather than just donating so im holding a charity yoga class at my work on 22nd September, everything we make will go to them. Do you want to do something similar? if so let me know, im happy to come to your office (in London ) and teach a free class with all proceeds going to MOAS. You just need a meeting room / space to do the class. Just a small way that we can maybe help this huge human tragedy thats happening before our eyes.
Alongside the charity classes im hoping to raise awareness throuhg the hashtag
To join in you just need to do the following…..
Post a pic of yourself doing a yoga pose
Use the hashtag above^^^^^
Donate £3 to MOAS here:http://www.givengain.com/activist/145100/projects/11282/

Note: Yoga is for everyone, you don’t have to be a pro – pet yoga pics welcome too smile emoticon
