Give Back from your Backyard!
(or porch, or bedroom, or wherever you are hiding from your littles)
To our Mindful Littles friends and family:
We hope you are finding a little bit of joy and fun in the midst of this Pandemic. As I sit in my own backyard, I realized that this is where Mindful Littles all began. On October 2nd, 2016 we gathered 15 local families to create hygiene kits for under-served youth. It was a very powerful, grassroots effort where we practiced compassion as a community, to help the community. It is that special magic that Mindful Littles brings, and continues to bring, to every project we offer.
Since then, our programs have grown massively - we have reached over 5000 youth and worked with over 50 community partners. Last year we launched a major healing initiative to help the Paradise, California community heal from the trauma of the fire. And with every project, Mindful Littles continues to grow leaps and bounds.
Our team is working hard to take video, audio, blog practices, really all the content we've created over the past 3.5 years and making it accessible digitally for the world. As we do that, we really need your help. As a nonprofit, we're facing the same reality that many small businesses are facing today. All of our fundraising events, service-learning programs, classroom lessons and workshops have been cancelled.
So, we are launching a campaign to raise $20,000 by May 5th (the new #GivingTuesday) and would be deeply grateful for your support. As we continue this work, I'm excited for the next phase of the Mindful Littles journey and I hope you will join us on this adventure!
With heartfelt gratitude,
Founder & Executive Director
