Each week, a Percentage of our ZOOM class donations will go to one of the organizations:
St Jude’s Research Hospital opened in 1962, thanks to the vision and generosity of Danny Thomas. No family has ever had to pay for their children to be served there.
The International Rescue Committee is a global humanitarian aid, relief, and development nongovernmental organization. Due to Covid-19, IRC is providing lifesaving programs to vulnerable communities in over 40 countries worldwide, including the United States.

Berkshire Food Project
Located in North Adams, Massachusetts, Berkshire Food Project has fed those in need since 1987. Covid has resulted in many Berkshire business shut downs and job losses - including Kripalu, where 450 people (myself included) have lost their jobs. Years before Covid came along, five hundred Berkshire residents per week were served. Now those numbers are far greater, helped by the terrific people who volunteer their time at such a worthy charity.
