Namaste, Holy Beings!
It has been a deep pleasure to share my practice, energy, and time with everyone on Insight Timer for the last few months. It has been such a meaningful and fulfilling journey for me and I truly hope that those who have joined the classes benefited from them.
As the months have gone by, my classes and schedule constantly changed and I started feeling like I was spreading myself too thin. In order to take care of my energy and ensure quality classes for all, I have decided to lessen my classes on the platform this coming month. The new schedule will have two classes a week – Tuesdays and Saturdays or Mondays and Fridays, depending on the time zone.
Even so, we will continue to pay it forward and allocate 10% of our donations from July to December to an organization that is very special to me.
From the previous months’ earnings, we were able to make donations to the following:
- April 2021: we made a donation to “For Our Farmers,” a non-profit organization that began in March 2020 at the start of the pandemic to extend help and support to our farmers in the provinces who strive hard to provide food for all of us. We were able to feed 3 families of 5 members each for a month. You may visit their website to learn more about their efforts in helping out our Filipino farmers.
- May 2021: we made a donation to “One Million Lights Philippines,” an organization that aims to provide safe, affordable, and renewable solar-powered lights to our fellow Filipinos in the far-flung provinces where electricity is still scarce or expensive. You may also visit their home page to learn more about their initiatives.
- June 2021: we were able to sponsor 5 mangrove seedlings for “CORA Philippines’ Mangrove Planting Program” that will help support the women who plant, grow, and maintain these mangroves in Samar, Leyte, and Mindanao.
- July 2021: we supported “CORA Philippines’ Biodiversity Conservation Program” that will help safeguard the Tamaraws, an endangered species in Mindoro, and will support the brave rangers who are the frontliners and fierce protectors of the mountain. We were able to provide a week’s salary to one Tamaraw Ranger.
