September marks the start of Autumn here at home. We have students getting ready for back to school, the trees change colour to brilliant shades of red and orange as the cooler weather starts to come in and many of us prepare to work a little harder after perhaps taking some time off during the summer months. Here at Mindful Necessities we are preparing to participate in a fundraiser for a great cause and we would love for you to join us - The Centre for Mindfulness Studies' Mindfulness Challenge 2016 - A Compassionate World. Our whole team will be actively involved in a four hour meditate-athon to raise money for the Centre for Mindfulness Studies Social Program where they bring mindfulness to marginalized people who suffer from depression, anxiety, social isolation, addiction, and other mental health issues. Here is a short video to learn more about the beautiful work that they do and the some of the lives that they have helped change:
The Challenge will take place on October 30th, which also happens to be our founder and Chief-of-Inspiration, Gisele's birthday. What an amazing gift! Please click here to view our team page where you can learn more about joining us on the mat or donating to the cause. We are beyond grateful to be able to participate in such a wonderful fundraiser. We're all in this together and it's important not to ever lose sight of that.
