help us build a home

i received an email today from city yoga about community service opportunities. it said:

The word in Sanskrit is "seva". It means service. The service you do for your yoga community or the community in which you live. The reason is simple...I just want to help.

and one of the opportunities mentioned was:

Yogathon in full gear!

Ok, we have over 30 people signed up and we need you! Be a part of history. This is our major fundraiser of the year and our goal is $100,000. You can help. If you cannot participate in the 24 hours on June 30th, then donate! Every dollar counts and is tax deductible.
Please come by the front desk and pick up your donation packet or write a check! Help build a home for a local family in need.

since i'm one of those 30 (so far) who'll be participating in the yogathon, if you're thinking of showing your support for habitat for humanity, why don't you sponsor me when you make that donation? that way, i can meet my sponsorship minimum (sadly, i'm not there yet), you can get your tax deduction, and some lucky family can get themselves a new home.

if you'd like, you can mail (or drop off) your check directly to city yoga. just put my name on the memo line and email me to let me know what you've donated so that i can update my sponsor sheet and get proper credit (very important!).

we're all in this together -- but while it'll take me 24 hours to get through the yogathon, it shouldn't take you more than 24 seconds to write out a check :)

thanks in advance for your support... and to those who've already pledged generously, thanks so much for being there for me!
