Yoga Aid Success Continues
4 Oneworld is a global charity, receiving donations from individuals all around the world. 4 Oneworld is fortunate to be a charity recipient for the Yoga Aid Foundation, which raises money for children in need through yoga. Yoga Aid Challenges are held at Yoga Festivals in Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Italy, India and Asia. The goal is for Yoga Aid participants to complete 108 sun salutations to benefit their choice of one non-profit organization that helps children in need.
The Yoga Aid Hong Kong was held in July and raised over $700 for 4 Oneworld.  Since the beginning of 2009 nearly $3000 has been received through Yoga Aid India, Italy and Hong Kong! These donations will help fund the teachers’ salaries, school furnishings and learning tools for the Kibooba village Primary School in Uganda.
On September 12 and 13th the Yoga Aid USA took place in cities throughout the country. The events raised nearly $20,000 for various charities! 4 Oneworld has yet to receive a confirmation of totals to benefit the children of Kibooba, but estimates are close to $2,000!
Thank you, Yoga Aid for your love and support! 4 Oneworld would not have such success without your help.

Kalamazoo funk band, Funktion has raised $110 in CD sales for 4 Oneworld! Funk Prelude is their latest CD and the August release
