Fundraising: recent < | > earlier



There are many interesting ways in which you can help support Ganga Prem Hospice. One of these is fundraising.

Fundraising can be an exciting and meaningful experience for oneself and one's friends, as well as being a help and support to terminally ill cancer patients in North India. Some ideas for fundraising are: sponsored walks, sales and raffles, benefit concerts and shows, charity dinners and parties, etc. See what you can do!

The Lotus Loft Yoga Studio
The following is an excerpt from an article by Jules Yount, Duncan Huilin's PA at the Devon School of Yoga which supports Ganga Prem Hospice through funds raised at its annual ' Devon Yoga Festival'.

After some unexpected bad news in February of 2014, I turned to crochet as a form of japa mala (repeated/counted) focus to quiet and soothe the scattered energy within my mind. As a result, these crochet creations, which so wonderfully helped to keep the mind calm when I needed it most, have turned into something extra special - a way to help contribute to the wonderful work of the Ganga Prem Hospice. Over the Christmas holidays, �300 was raised for this worthy cause (�180 from selling some of the beautiful handmade items from India and �120 from selling my own crochet creations thanks to the Lotus Loft yoga studio in Exeter.)

AND - the giving continues. There are currently more items on sale at the Lotus Loft (including leg warmers, coasters, book marks, and more) and these will soon be made available in other yoga studios as well, including the Ashtanga Yoga Workshop in Exeter. If any other yoga studios would like to sell some of these items in aid of the Ganga Prem Hospice, please contact me at:
Crochet articles on sale at the Lotus Loft Yoga Studio

Or if you wish to contribute your own creativity and time to this worthy cause, I encourage you to GO FOR IT! Start creating, contact your local yoga studio and get the ball rolling.

Every little bit helps!

Together we are stronger!

And - no matter what you are going through, there is probably someone going through something much worse. Allow a change in perspective from, "Why am I hurt?" to "How can I help?" and, chances are, the world will light up bigger and brighter with your new view (and it might very well become the help that is needed).
