I'm busy -- but can I just donate?

HopeWorks logoYes! We welcome all donations even if you cannot attend the YSNV event itself. It's quick and easy! Just click on the HopeWorks logo on the left, which will take you to the HopeWorks YSNV donation page. There you can make a contribution of any amount online. We thank you for your contribution and hope you can join us in 2017!

How does it work?

Students and practitioners gather together and participate in doing 108 Sun Salutations (or as many as they can). The participants, teachers and students alike, are sponsored by family, friends and students. Local businesses offer gift baskets or gift certificates for raffle.

Can I do it?

Yes! Whether you're a new student, a regular practitioner, or a teacher, you have what it takes to help! In fact, you don't have to do Yoga to participate! But if you do, here's a practice worksheet to help prepare you for the event, here's a video demonstrating two Sun Salutations, and here's a flyer for more information!

Where will the money go? Will any of it be wasted?

All the money collected goes directly to the local rape crisis & domestic violence center, HopeWorks of Howard County. None of the funds go towards administrative costs but are directly spent on serving those in need. So please join us and be sure to circulate the web site address among your friends and social networks!
