In The Name of Love - A Fundraiser for Michael Joel Hall

As many of you know, Michael Joel Hall was senselessly attacked on Saturday night, while with his boyfriend, in what is being investigated as a hate crime. As a local yoga instructor without health insurance, he is facing major medical bills after undergoing surgery to repair a broken jaw and cheekbone. Fortunately, Michael is one of the most loved people I know in DC (and beyond) and his community has rallied around him during this difficult time.

Please consider donating directly to a paypal account set up to help with his medical bills (http://bit.ly/MJHFund) or stop by proper topper on Friday when 10% of total sales will be donated to the MJH fund.

Michael Joel Hall - In the Name of Love Fundraiser & Practice

When: Friday Night July 27, 8:15pm
Where: Flow Yoga Center
What: We will be offering two donation classes featuring Flow's Mimi Rieger, Rob Hess, Greg Marzullo and Brittanie DeChino.

For those of you who have had the chance to take his classes at Flow (Wed-Thurs-Fri Mysore & Saturday Rocket) you know what a treasure he is. Now, Michael, one of DC's most beloved yoga instructors, is in the hospital awaiting surgery after being viciously attacked this past Saturday evening. If this were not awful enough - Michael's home was destroyed in a fire just a few months before.

As medical bills and other expenses mount ... one might say Michael has nothing. But this is not true - because he has YOU! Whether you know Michael personally or not- we invite you to experience the true essence of yoga this Friday night as we come together in community!

A gift of $20 or more would really go a long way!! Replace the injustice with kindness - and the suffering, with love.
