Whole Foods Market Tampa hosts a beach clean-up and fundraiser for the Whole Planet Foundation
Beach Yoga Jam for a Cause is a beach clean-up, yoga session, and drum circle held at beautiful Picnic Island Park in Tampa! Local yoga instructor Chay Prieto will lead a relaxing outdoor yoga class, followed by a sunset drum circle with talking drum ("tama") master Baye Kouyate. We’ll get things started at 2pm with a beach clean-up. The plastics that are collected on the beach will be used to create a piece of recycled artwork to create a visual reminder of ocean plastic pollution.
Saturday, March 16th – 2pm to 6pm
Picnic Island Park, 7404 Picnic Island Blvd, Tampa
A $5 suggested donation for the Beach Yoga Jam will go to the Whole Planet Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides grants to microfinance institutions in communities around the world. A loan as small as $200 can spark lifelong change for a poor entrepreneur, providing her the means to create or grow her own business and secure a steady income and stable future for herself and her family. If the foundation reaches its campaign fundraising goal of $5.7 million, it will have enough funds to create nearly 36,000 new loans that will help more than 200,000 people with the chance for a better life.
