One Love Long Island Yoga Festival – 2016
At One Love Long Island 2016, 20 Yoga Studio Communities from across Long Island will unite with common breath, compassion & the practice of yoga to raise awareness and funds in support of organizations that work to eradicate the horrific practice of human trafficking. Our partners & projects provide refuge, rehabilitation, & economic opportunities to survivors of trafficking globally. This year the monies raised will support Puresa Humanitarian, Girls Inc. of Long Island, and as always OLLI works in collaboration with Off the Mat into the World to support their continued work using yoga to inspire conscious sustainable activism and ignite grassroot social change.
OLLI is pledging 20% of this years proceeds to Girls Inc. of Long Island! Monies donated will be earmarked for a weeklong Yoga and Social Justice Institute for high school girls on Long Island during the summer 2017. Depending on amount of funds raised, Girls Inc. will additionally provide yoga classes to every location we serve at least twice per semester during the 2016.
