Los Angeles Rocks! Operation Shanti

Join Los Angeles-based yoga teacher Garth Hewitt for his third fund-raising event to help Operation Shanti build a new orphanage in Mysore, India. The donation-based yoga class will be held on September 17th from 3-5pm; all levels are welcome! After Party with a DJ, food, and an auction to follow, from 6-8pm.

Please pre-register for this event by signing up at garthhewittyoga.com or www.facebook.com/LARocksOperationShanti.

Operation Shanti's Mission is...

To directly improve the lives of exploited, at-risk, destitute children and the forgotten, suffering elderly, enabling them to become "beacons of light" and share the same gifts of peace, goodwill, and generosity with others for the rest of their lifetimes.

We help the poorest and neediest children and elderly, and the forgotten destitute, with the basic human needs: food, shelter, medical services and educational assistance. As we believe that every human can and should stand on his/her own, we are there to help the destitute begin to help themselves.
