Namaste! Help us bring CosmicKids Yoga to the USA!
My students need the last bit of financing to bring our YOGA GURU and HERO for a day of yoga!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Picture a group of kids who are growing up in homeless housing. That's my room. As one of the few states that guarantee family housing, our shelters are overflowing. The state has purchased temporary apartment housing near our school, and well over half of our population is in our area for a short, undetermined amount of time. With 100% of our student body receiving free breakfast, lunch, and snack, school is their safe place.
Despite obstacles that would be too much for many adults, they remain bright, funny, and fun-loving, and they really enjoy the safety and security that school brings.
Our school not only keeps the kids safe, but it's a place where learning comes alive and is so fun!
What Cosmic Kids and most especially, Jaime, means to the kids in school is difficult to put into words. She means mindfulness and yoga practice for sure, but also consistency to a group of students who have experienced a myriad of trauma and change in their lives. She is the voice we begin every test with, every afternoon with, and even spurred us on to begin our very own yoga program for families at home.
Part THREE of this three-part project will cover travel expenses one stateside for Cosmic Kids presenters, as the Presentation Fee has been amazingly and wondrously waived for this occasion.
The very fact she has agreed to pencil us into an extraordinarily big schedule is humbling in and of itself. We look forward to spending the day doing yoga our guru! Each grade level will have a presentation and be able to perform yoga with Jaime. We have no doubt this will remain one of the highlights of the students’ year at the close of the school.
