It’s inspiring to see how even a small donation can make a big impact when a large community of like-minded people comes together to help those in need.
Denver, CO (Vocus/PRWEB) April 08, 2011
From March 24 – March 31, CorePower Yoga studios across the country collected donations from students to support Japan relief efforts.
The total donations raised exceeded $36,000, including $5,000 from the company and $5,000 from CorePower Yoga’s CEO, Trevor Tice. The American Red Cross will receive the donations to assist with relief efforts in Japan following the recent earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis.
Donations were accepted during class check-ins or were tacked on to yoga package, membership or retail merchandise transactions during the week-long donation campaign. Most students donated small sums when they came in for class.
“It’s inspiring to see how even a small donation can make a big impact when a large community of like-minded people comes together to help those in need,” said Tice.
In 2010, CorePower Yoga raised over $22,000 for the victims of the Haiti earthquake during a similar donation campaign.
