Karma for the world: running to protect wildlife and wild places!
When considering my goals and resolutions for this year, one word really came to me that had never really been prominent to me before: karma.
I'm a yoga teacher and practitioner, and in my training/understanding this word takes on more of the connotation of giving. Giving what you can, from the heart, freely and gladly, simply because you have enough to give. The idea to me is that if we all feel we have enough, and then give as if that were true, the world as a whole would be a kinder, fuller, and more harmonious place.
I am at a place in my life I am so fortunate to feel able to give back, and hope to encourage others to feel and do the same. So here are the words already laid out by the World Wildlife Fund for why I choose to give to this particular cause:
I am running wild and fundraising for World Wildlife Fund because I want to protect the future of nature.
Deforestation, climate change, water scarcity, and illegal wildlife trade. These are some of the threats facing our planet today—and no one person or group can tackle them alone. But if we work together, we can take on anything.
We can protect the very things that keep us alive: our forests, our oceans, our fresh water, our wildlife, our energy supply, our food supply.
Please join me in this important work by making a donation today.
Thank you for giving what you can.
