I have been extremely grateful to all of my students for the support of my donation based practiced during these unprecedented times. As of November 1, I've taken a hiatus from teaching these classes, but it has been a such joy to share 50-100% of the donations from these months of practice together to causes I deeply care about. We've been able to donate $2,135 so far among the following charities:

Armenia Fund, GoFundMe's California Wildfire Relief Fund, Impact Lebanon, Armenian Wounded Heroes Fund, Planned Parenthood, The Trevor Project, Campaign Zero, Culinary Care, Back On My Feet, Surfrider Foundation, Meals on Wheels, Sea Hugger, Crew Nation, Coffee For Heroes, Great American Music Hall + Slim's Staff Relief Fund.
