At the risk of sounding cliche, we want to make the world a better place. Not boisterous Donald Trump style “Make America Great Again” better……just better. We want to know that when we wake up tomorrow, our world as we know it will be slightly better than it is today. Positive change is made little by little, day by day. It takes effort, patience and commitment. We all know Rome wasn’t built in a day, but as they say “small efforts sustained over time can produce significant results.”
So, in keeping with this motto, we decided to do a little pop-up shop at Moksha Yoga NDG in support of its efforts to raise money for Junglekeepers, a nonprofit committed to protecting the Madre de Dios (Mother of God) rainforest in Peru. The Amazon jungle, whose size and biodiversity make it one of the greatest natural wonders of the world, is under severe threat of deforestation due to (among other things) road construction and agriculture. Moksha Yoga has been collaborating with Junglekeepers since 2014 in a valiant effort to preserve this invaluable ecosystem.
As mothers, yogis, humanitarians and business owners, we were happy to donate a percentage of sales from our little pop-up to this important cause. Hopefully one day in the not-too-distant future we will be lucky enough to visit, to experience the Peruvian Amazon first-hand and hence, to truly comprehend the significance of the work being done by Junglekeepers.
