Carlsbad Causes for Community (C3) is excited to announce a pilot program called Reach out for THANKS which offers FREE CHAIR YOGA for the month of January on Wednesdays at 1:30 pm and Saturdays at 1:30 pm to be held at the Carlsbad Village Yoga Co-op in downtown Carlsbad. This program was inspired by an event called Friends Helping Friends which was grant-funded by the Carlsbad Charitable Foundation and involved non-profits collaborating with Kids for Peace to perform service projects for the community. The Reach Out for THANKS service project involves a collaboration of Kids for Peace, C3, and Meals on Wheels.
Hundreds of ‘Gratitude Bookmarks’ offering this gratitude gift of yoga were colored and laminated by the kids and then distributed to the hundreds of senior volunteers who deliver food for Meals on Wheels. C3 is a 501 c3 non-profit that collaborates as a community to implement programs and events for the community. The Reach Out for THANKS program is open to not only senior volunteers for Meals on Wheels, but to anyone who would benefit from a little stretching and reaching out to experience come community love. If this pilot program serves to be successful and utilized by the elderly population of Carlsbad, then C3 will seek donations to enable the continued existence of Reach Out for THANKS. C3 is holding a Winter Formal Ball and Live Auction fundraiser on January 30, 2015 to raise money for another program that funds free yoga to the Boys & Girls Club, Village Branch to kids ages 6 through 13 and teens.
