October is breast cancer awareness month and we are donating a portion of proceeds from pink items to the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute.  About Karmanos:

Through the commitment of 1,000 staff, including nearly 300 faculty members, and supported by thousands of volunteer and financial donors, Karmanos strives to prevent, detect and eradicate cancer.

the pink link
The Pink Link is handpainted bicycle link jewelry made to raise breast cancer awareness and benefit The Link Foundation Inc.  These unique handpainted bicycle links are to serve as a small symbol to support one another in the fight to eradiacte breast cancer.  Created by Jeff Troldahl as a way to fight back after losing his mother to breast cancer, these links can be worn in any number of ways and are a simple reminder to remember those affected by the disease.

Divine Play AcroYoga Festival 
The 2nd Annual Divine Play AcroYoga Festival is happening this weekend (October 7-10) in the Craneway Pavillion in Richmond, CA (just outside of San Fransisco).  We are excited to be a part of this great event and to help support this global movement of connection, peace, and playfulness.  More about the festival:
Daytime classes are for all levels, even those new to AcroYoga.  Friday day-long intensives are an opportunity to do in-depth study, while the Main Festival offers over 100 classes to choose from. The international faculty includes master teachers in the respective fields of yoga, acrobatics and Thai massage, as well as over 50 certified AcroYoga teachers from around the world. At night, the greater community joins in for unique evenings of celebration and entertainment, including circus performances, dance parties, bodywork exchanges, and kirtan.   
In Partnership with:  
This year, the Festival is working in partnership with Africa Yoga Project and a portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the programs of AYP in Kenya.
