Climbing Out of Homelessness

I came across an amazing organization while I was looking for a place to donate the profits from my Mount Rainier Yoga Leggings, and this organization couldn't be more perfect!  In fact, it really gave me a feeling that I am definitely on the right path of my Yogescape mission.

Climbing Out of Homelessness is a program brought to us by the Recovery Beyond Paradigm Non Profit Service Group.  You can read more about it and the founding story here, but I'd like to give you a short summary.

Let's Help Hawaii

With the volcano erupting on the Big Island and earthquakes still happening, many people are left without homes.  I've designed a pair of leggings where for the next twelve months 100% of the profits are going to go towards the Volcano Victim Relief fund hosted by the Salvation Army.  After twelve months the profits from this design will go to a local organization that helps the homeless community on the Big Island.

My Mission

For the last couple years I have been sort of studying the ends and outs of social media platforms, marketing programs and other software that is readily available for people to use to create a brand.  I've done everything from launching products all the way to self publishing a book that I was able to get into many major online retailers all from my phone and/or laptop.  The point is, is that with the internet and these very accessible programs one individual now has the capability to reach millions at their fingertips.  I have the capability to reach millions, and... I want to.  I want to make a difference somewhere in this world, make a positive change, help.

I've used some of these online mediums to express myself artistically, and ended up creating a very small business designing and selling Yoga pants.  My pants feature beautiful landscape scenes of nature and our environments.  I always joke that it is a fun way to "get into nature".  I love everything about …
