1. Our non-profit, Tranquil Space Foundation, is hosting Lunafest on Thursday, April 22nd at Steptoe and Johnson in Dupont. The evening will begin with a reception at 6:30pm and the films will be shown at 7:00 after we honor our Spring 2010 grantees. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door and include the wine and cheese reception PLUS yummy popcorn. Yay!
All of the proceeds from LunafestDC will go to TSF and the Breast Cancer Research Fund. This will be an inspirational night on many fronts - from the films to the grantees to the mission behind all of our work - helping young women to find their inner voice through yoga, creativity and leadership. Purchase tickets here.
2. One of our teachers, Abby Strunk, is the ED at Street Sense and recently shared these openings so I offered to pass along. This great organization is looking for 3-5 committed volunteers to manage our office and distribute papers to our vendors and three rock star interns for the summer: a marketing & communications intern, a graphic design intern and a development intern. Each position provides an opportunity to contribute in a meaningful way to Street Sense and to the work we’re doing to address the challenges of homelessness. Please visit here to learn more about each position.
3. Consider joining the Tranquil Space team for the Walk to End Violence Against Women and Girls on April 18. Right now we are the #1 fundraising team in the COUNTRY for this crucial cause - and we need your help to stay there!
Participate in the walk with the Tranquil Space team, make a tax-deductible donation, or reach out to your elected representatives to encourage them to support the pendiong I-VAWA legislation. You can register, donate, or find out more info about any of these action steps on my Firstgiving page: http://www.firstgiving.com/allisonasplin. The walk starts in Arlington and ends in Dupont Circle - what a great symbol of connection between our two studios!
4. This Sunday I'm leading a slow flow class from 6-7:15 at our Dupont location as part of our "Second Sundays" dedicated to raising money for charities. The requested donation is $15 to Tranquil Space Foundation. Please come out to support the cause and begin your week with an intentional start! Sign up at tranquilspace.com.
