We did it, YBB went viral! As you may know, NowThis Media launched an incredible video about YBB, our students, and our work. Because of our amazing community, over 9 million people have seen it. 🙂
Since then we’ve received hundreds of requests to share our methodology and bring our training to cities across the world. In order to say YES! to any of these things, we need more support and financial resources. Although we have had a lot of views and questions, we’ve received less than a $1,000 in donations from the video.
This is where we need your help to gain momentum!
Will you share our Generosity Campaign link with as many people as you know? Friends, family, neighbors and colleagues to help us #buildthemovement to transform prisons. Seventy thousand people shared the video, let’s make this campaign go viral too!
If 1 out of every 1000 viewers donated $10 to Yoga Behind Bars we’d raise $80k. With those funds, we can:
- Launch our online learning platform so people from around the world can study with us for a reasonable fee.
- Further develop our curriculum and program model to share with others who’d like to start a trauma-sensitive yoga program in prison or other setting.
If we do this, we can spread the benefit of our work all across the globe while sustaining our programs and impact here in WA State.
Most funding is generated within the first four weeks of a campaign, so share ASAP! Thank you for sharing our project far and wide!
