On Tuesday, March 10, CURA Magazine will be hosting Breathing Space: A Literary Day Spa.
With the belief that self-care can be a radical act in today's hyperactive world, CURA Magazine invites you to relax and unplug. Escape from the cold and get ready for Spring Break with aromatherapy by Aveda, restorative yoga stretching, creative writing and an herbal tea meditation. Door Prizes by: FACE Stockholm, Ishta Yoga and The DogTag Project.
Each participant will receive a gift certificate for a free week of unlimited yoga classes at Yoga Works.
The Spa will run every half hour from 12:30-2:00pm. in Fordham University's Lincoln Center Plaza Atrium. The event is free and open to the public.
Space is extremely limited. Sign up now for your half hour of tranquility and reflection. We will also be collecting donations for The Doe Fund's Youth Initiative.
In coordination with Breathing Space, CURA is sponsoring its second Indiegogo fundraiser to support The Doe Fund’s Ready, Willing & Able Youth Initiative which provides education, personal growth and job readiness programs for homeless youth in New York City. A recent publication by the Center for Economic Opportunity reports that 15.8% of the youth in NYC are not engaged in work or school. As part of this new initiative, 18- to 26-year-olds who enter The Doe Fund’s Ready, Willing & Able program without a high school diploma or equivalent will have the opportunity to participate in a mixed week of work and education. Of this population being served, 50% have a history of incarceration, 23% grew up in foster care, 93% are African-American or Hispanic, 28% are fathers, and 48% lack a GED or high school diploma.
While traditional youth programs emphasize transitional employment or education, The Doe Fund’s program allows participants to pursue both work and education at the same time without having to choose one over the other.
Check out our fantastic perks for donations including: an Aveda Wellness Party, free classes at Exhale barre/spa/yoga, a gift certificate to Book Culture, dog tags from The DogTag public art exhibit and more. Join us in supporting The Doe Fund and their transformative mission.
