Stay healthy and support a wonderful cause at Jaya Yoga Center (1626 8th Avenue). The school currently has six works of art on display, all by Brooklyn artists, that will be auctioned off this spring (date to be announced) by Peace for Elephants.
The local organization, co-foundecd by Meghan and Brad Holland, seeks to raise awareness of “the torture inflicted on the Elephant to become painters, soccer players, and an “experience” for a tourist to ride.” Proceeds from the upcoming auction will benefit the Elephant Nature Park in Thailand, and similar sanctuaries.
Visit the Peace for Elephants Facebook page for updated information on the spring auction, and other fundraising events.
