Over the past year and a half my business, Maine Bikram Yoga, has been able to help many people in need through our Saturday donation classes. We have dedicated all proceeds from 1 class per week for 1 month to non-profit charities or other charitable causes. We have been delighted to give back to our community that has given so much to us. Since giving to family is in our eyes deemed the most charitable cause, I feel the need to reach out to my brother in his time of great need. My brother Shawn has spent years as a therapist working with troubled teens and young adults, something we all know of late, is a very brave and much needed profession. He recently decided to start his own business, which as we ourselves know, does not allow you to provide affordable health insurance for your family. My brother and wife love children and have 11 beautiful kids some of whom he has been sending off to college. The last baby arrived a few months premature, and there were many complications. His wife is now faced with the immediate need for multiple surgeries over the next few weeks. Their family will be foregoing Christmas this year to travel hours to be with their mother at the hospital. As if the cost of this alone is not enough, my brother also fears the loss of his home due to ongoing financial difficulties. To top it off, last weekend his business partner suffered the loss of his home due to a house fire. This adds even more financial insecurity to the situation. It is my intention to do whatever I can to help out this amazing family. I turn to you, our caring and loving Yoga Community, and ask for your help. Anything you are able to donate will be seen as nothing short of a miracle to me and my family during this season of giving. Blessings ~ Angela Weymouth
