International Nonprofit Aims to Host 200 Events in 20 Countries During 24 Hours-Donating 100% of Money Raised

SYDNEY, Australia, May 31, 2012 /CNW/ - Yoga Aid Foundation, an international nonprofit that raises funds for charities through philanthropic yoga events, announced it will host a one day around the world yoga tour benefiting 20+ charities internationally. On September 9, 2012, The Yoga Aid World Challenge will unite yogis around the globe to raise $1million with 100% of proceeds going to the selected charitable organizations.

Starting in Sydney Australia, the 24-hour yoga relay will travel around the world and end sundown in Los Angeles. The Yoga Aid World Challenge will bring together renowned teachers, studios and students in 20+ countries, creating a united community, focusing on raising money for charity. During these events, yogi participants will embark on a yoga practice as a way to celebrate the funds they raised for the charity partners.

Unlike other events, all expenses are supported privately - ensuring 100% of donations go straight to the charities.

The Yoga Aid World Challenge supports select charities in each country. This year, the Yoga Aid World Challenge chose three charities that embrace the power of yoga to support the Canadian leg of the relay:

"The Yoga Aid family is calling on the entire international community to band together and host at least 200 events in 20 countries and raise more than $1 million for charities during the 2012 Challenge," said Clive Mayhew, Co-founder, Yoga Aid Foundation.

Those individuals inspired by The Yoga Aid World Challenge are encouraged to signup and become Community Ambassadors. Ambassadors bring The Yoga Aid World Challenge home to their communities by creating, organizing and hosting a local event, in a nearby park, studio or community center. Furthering Yoga Aid's commitment to giving, the Foundation will provide all of the necessary event tools and funding for the creation of any local event scheduled during the September 9th 24-hour global yoga-relay.

"The Yoga Aid World Challenge is more than just our way to give back - its an international charitable platform uniting all yogis for the greater good and activating a sense of joy in giving back to the world." Eriko Kinoshita, Co-founder, Yoga Aid Foundation.
