Our Giving Story
How Epic Yoga & Lifestyle makes a difference in the wider community
Our Local Gladstone business, Epic Yoga & Lifestyle is embarking on two massive giving projects in 2018. Epic Yoga & Lifestyle is giving 10,000 days of life-saving water to families in Ethiopia, and also giving 1,000 days of access to a safe house for children saved from sexual abuse in Nepal.
SO WHY ARE WE GIVING BACK?
In 2017 Epic Yoga & Lifestyle’s Full Moon Yoga events attracted thousands of people
throughout the year and raised thousands of dollars for charities in need.
In 2018 Epic Yoga & Lifestyle has raised the bar for giving back. It’s pioneering an
approach that will see every interaction with the business have a micro-impact with
someone else in the world.
Business owner Paul Charalambous says
“Giving has become a habit for us. This year we’re setting bigger goals for our impacts. By creating micro-giving impacts everyday, we believe that great things can be achieved.”
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Through giving stories, a micro-giving impact is created simply by doing what we do everyday. For example: Every-time someone practices Yoga at Epic, 1 day of life-saving water will be provided to families in need. Whenever someone starts a 2 week trial of Yoga, 1 day of access to a safe house will be provided for children saved from sexual abuse.
“Yoga has an amazing ability to heal the individual, but also to heal the world. We
encourage all local Gladstone business to consider how they are giving back. As a Buy 1 Give 1 (B1G1) Business For Good, we incorporate even more meaning to our business through giving. Together, we are making great difference in the world by doing what we do every day”
Paul Charalambous, founder of Epic Yoga & Lifestyle.
