We have a dream. And we believe that, as human beings, we can make anything happen, especially if we join forces. So when we met some challenges in financing our dream, we figured: we never say no to a stranger in the street, asking for 1 or 2 Euro. We can easily spare it and help someone out. What would happen if we ask everybody in our network for € 1,30 and they ask everyone in their network, on our behalf, and so on. If everybody would donate € 1,30 (€ 1 after processing fee) it would only take a few steps (to the friends of the friends of our friends) to finance this dream.
What is our dream? A mindful retreat centre in the South of France. Where people can come and enjoy the quiet, beautiful nature, wellness, yoga, meditation, coaching (if they wish), and meet other people. Where they can unwind, recharge and reconnect to themselves and each other. Where people get inspired to live a conscious, sustainable and mindful life.
We want to combine this with our start-up Yogayounity (30-minute yoga sessions in the workplace, without having to change clothes), where we work together with sales partners and trainers to make Dutch (and in the near future also European) company’s and employees aware of the benefits of yoga, meditation and mindfulness. To make this world a more harmonious, happy place.
By raising 1 million Euro amongst 1 million people, we want to prove the power of connection. We want to show that it does not take a big bank, or somebody rich, to make this happen. All it takes is a network of kind people, willing to promote this project and contribute an almost insignificant amount of money. But together they create something amazing!
You can be part of this, and help us on our mission to bring more connection and harmony in this world. Once we’ve realised this project, we will pay it forward by sharing 5% of our net profit with GoFundMe projects.
Who are we? If you received an email or saw a Facebook post with a link to this page, we are definitely connected in some way. Directly, or through friends, family, acquaintances… We are Jan and Cynthia, two Dutchies with a lot of love for people, animals, nature, yoga & anything that leads to connecting to the soul and living from the heart. We are entrepreneurs with a vision, and a business plan waiting to be executed.
You can share our link on Facebook, or (even more effective) by email. Ask your network to donate and promote the project in their network and let’s show the world what we can do together! Thank you so much and we hoop to meet you one day in the south of France!
