Yogis for Haiti Day: January 12, 2011

On January 12, 2010, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck the country of Haiti, devastating the capital and largest city, Port-au-Prince. A study by the Inter-American Development Bank as reported by the New York Times, estimated that the total cost of the disaster was between $7.2 billion to $13.2 billion, based on a death toll from 200,000 to 250,000. While public response was strong in 2010, there is much to do and Haiti needs us now more than ever. More than a million displaced people still live under tents/tarpaulins, reconstruction has been slow to start, and an outbreak of cholera and political unrest has made conditions worse and recovery difficult.

Off the Mat, Into the World believes in the power of the yoga community to come together to make a difference. Therefore, OTM is initiating the 2nd “Yogis for Haiti” day on this anniversary to demonstrate our solidarity and collective support for relief efforts in Haiti. Last year, the yoga community came together raising over $18,000 for organizations on the ground serving Haiti. This year, we’re uniting again on January 12th, 2011 to show our support and make a difference by taking our yoga off the mat and into the world.

To support this initiative, and in solidarity for these efforts, Manduka is offering 10% OFF ALL PURCHASES MADE ON JANUARY 12, 2011.

The coupon code is: Y4HAITI10 (This offer expires at midnight, January 12, 2011).
