It’s the most wonderful time of the year — to give back

I absolutely love our Modo Yoga community. Why? Because when you put a call out for people to come and support something you’re doing, your fellow yogis Show. Up.

This weekend, Erin and I hosted “From Ours to Yours,” a shop our closet event to raise money for Logifem, a women’s shelter in Montreal.

My wonderful parents came to help Erin and I set up our shop our closet event.

We had such a great time and the event was so successful that we’ve been asked to hold a second edition — this time at Modo Yoga Montreal (3863 Boulevard Saint-Laurent).

When? Next Saturday, Dec. 15. I’m teaching a class at 9:15 a.m. (come sweat!) and right after, we’ll open up the sale. Some wonderful souls have already donated clothes for our second event — isn’t that amazing?

The holidays are a great time to give back — and the shelter is overwhelmed with clothing donations, according to Logifem Executive Director Sally Richmond. Monetary donations are just that much more helpful to help these women get back on their feet. That’s why, when we decluttered our wardrobes, we decided to take one more step before donating — sell our clothes to raise money.

The organization, founded in 1988, provides a safe haven for women on an emergency basis. Some call the shelter home for one or two nights, others on a long-term basis for up to five years. These women, and sometimes their children, turn to Logifem for many different reasons, including financial difficulties, domestic violence, referral from youth protection and more.
