Health & Wellness Expert Alana Kessler Mobilizes Community Consciousness By Launching The Nepal Gratitude Project on GiveForward

Health and wellness expert and entrepreneur Alana Kessler has decided to make a difference in the lives of those affected by the Nepal earthquake through a profoundly innovative humanitarian campaign on GiveForward, The Nepal Gratitude Project.

Sangha Yoga ShalaThe Nepal Gratitude Project not only raises funds to aid those victims and their loved ones impacted by the natural disaster, it raises consciousness and spirits internationally. For the month of May, Alana will be offering the uplifting campaign with some powerful and transformative participatory experiences for supporters.

On Saturday, April 25th, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake devastated Katmandu, Nepal killing more than 5,000 people. In the wake of this disaster, eight million people, 1 one million of those being children, are enduring health epidemics, homelessness, and lack of fresh water and food. All over social media and on the news heartbreaking scenes of displacement, loss, and death have played over and over again as viewers helplessly watched the heartbreaking saga unfold.

The Nepal Gratitude Project answers the question: How can we serve with the most integrity? The project works on a variety of levels. Monetarily, it is structured to raise at least $5,000 towards the Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund through The Seva Foundation (BBB Accredited Charity).

But unlike most charitable projects where the giving stops after the financial transaction, The Nepal Gratitude Project continues as a transformative journey for the supporter that sends a powerful display of love and support to victims and their loved ones.
NepalBeginning today, Kessler is asking The Nepal Gratitude Project supporters to participate in a community 30 days of Gratitude intention, using social media to show daily gratitude via images with the hashtags #30daysgratitudeNYC & #gratitudejournal4Nepal.  In addition, on Sunday May 31st, at 1:30 PM, Alana, who owns the boutique studio Sangha Yoga Shala, located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at 107 North 3rd Street #3E located off the Bedford stop on the L Train, will be hosting a guided meditation in loving kindness as an offering of love and support for all the victims and their loved ones.
Kessler stated:
“Amidst extreme sorrow and devastation, material generosity, including the intentional practices of loving kindness, compassion and gratitude, offer immeasurable value towards healing and rebuilding community. We hope you will join us in this call to action and enliven the hearts and lives of all beings everywhere.”
