GIVING TUESDAY X RESTORING HARMONY

Today, we’re experiencing a dramatic increase in polarization worldwide, as opposed to previous years. Americans have rarely been as polarized as they are today and there is an increasingly stark disagreement across the political spectrum, according to the Pew Research Center. The U.S. is hardly the only country wrestling with deepening political fissures. Brexit has polarized British politics and the rise of populist parties has disrupted party systems across Europe.

We are all desperate to understand how to heal division and hatred. AZAHAR Foundation believes that the key to slowing down the nefarious effects of polarization in our communities is to facilitate constructive shifts in our attitudes and actions through the power of yoga, meditation, and the arts.

Involving YOU in this effort is our primary goal so that together we can provide access to these practices that transform humanity and restore harmony. Giving Tuesday is on November 29th and AZAHAR Foundation is inviting you to partner with us to support healing, consciousness, and peace.

AZAHAR Foundation believes that these practices should not reserved for the elite demographic as it is not a luxury status. Yoga is an ancient practice that is here to serve everyone. This entails reforming the current entries into yoga and making yoga accessible to all by placing equity at the center.

We are essentially empowering individuals and communities, who otherwise wouldn’t have access, with the tools and training needed to thrive as wellness leaders in their community. We are moving towards closing the gap between well-being and health equity in post-conflict communities such as Cambodia, Rwanda and Ukraine.

WHY GIVING TUESDAY?

PEACE IS POSSIBLE 

Giving Tuesday is a global movement that falls on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving every year.  This year Giving Tuesday falls on November 29th.  

“#GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.”

Giving Tuesday is growing as a global movement. Last year on Giving Tuesday, over $2.7 billion dollars were raised. Its benefits to our cause are immense.

Our mission is promote PEACE BUILDING and CROSS-CULTURAL COMMUNICATION through YOGA, MEDITATION & ARTS. Giving Tuesday provides us a platform to share our mission with likeminded people so that you can help us spread the word.  Our work is only possible through your generosity.  Our goal is to raise $20,000 through Giving Tuesday in 2022 and double our contact base.

We need everyone’s help to get us there. Here’s how you can help us kick off our first Giving Tuesday.
