Fundraising Drive Complete: $12,480 Raised
Thank-you for your support!!
It's been an amazing few months of sweetness and generosity! When we launched the BYS fundraising drive in January, we had no idea what kind of response we would receive. Amazingly, in two short months, the community has not only donated enough to meet our original goal, but you passed it!! Over 200 individuals from all over the U.S. donated throughout the course of the drive, contributing to a total amount of $12,480 raised!! It's hard to really express what it's been like to watch so many donations come in, and to realize how much you all appreciate the little Jewel-Box we call BYS. Thank-you all for supporting our mission, and reminding the world of the power of generosity.

Best Cheap Yoga of 2011
