We first met Megan Campbell in 2010. She had heard about CARE when one of her colleagues dedicated a yoga class to fight global poverty. Megan was inspired. The thought of merging her two passions – yoga and giving back – was an aha moment. She immediately went online to learn more about CARE and has been an enthusiastic supporter ever since.
In 2011, Megan hosted a 1-day yogathon that brought together 60 women in the Ottawa area and generated over $9000 in support of CARE’s work around the world.
Why CARE? “CARE was a natural fit for me. I use yoga to empower women in our local community. I truly believe that aligning these two worlds – empowering women in local communities to empower women worldwide – is such a powerful and important message. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to support a great cause.”
What’s next for Megan? Her Ottawa yogathon for CARE is now an annual event and her goal this year is even bigger – 120 women with a fundraising target of $18,000. The Ottawa event will take place on May 27th. Limited spaces available! Visit http://www.journeyoftheyogini.com/ to register.
