Community Yoga Fundraiser to Honor the Life of Darcy Belanger

  • The Hangar at Stanley (map)

Hi everyone. We lost a member of our extended #StanleyFamily in the Ethiopian Airlines plane crash a few weeks ago. His name was Darcy Belanger, and he was a very special human being and a tireless advocate for the environment. We are honoring Darcy's life and work by hosting a donation-based yoga session with Kindness Yoga in The Hangar at Stanley on Saturday, April 20, at 9AM. All proceeds will be donated to MAPS, the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, about which Darcy was fiercely passionate. Neighborhood Music Stapleton at Stanley Marketplace is donating live musicians for the event, and several Stanley businesses are donating a percentage of the day's sales to MAPS in Darcy's honor, including: Clementine's Salon & Skin Care Kinesis Pilates - 20% of salesMondo Market - 10% of sales SquadronCo - 20% of sales Trunk Nouveau - 50% of sales We are eager to help support this cause that was so dear to Darcy's heart, and we are also eager to fill The Hangar with yogis on the morning of April 20 to show his family and friends what an impact he's still having on the world. RSVP here: bit.ly/kindnessformaps We hope you'll join us, and we hope you'll bring a friend. Please also bring a donation to MAPS, or donate in advance here and bring us a copy of your donation receipt: https://parvati.org/donate/ Here's more about MAPS: https://parvati.org/maps/ And here's a look at Darcy's life and legacy from some of his colleagues at Parvati.org:https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2019/03/15/darcy-belanger-ethiopian-plane-crash_a_23693478/ Please BRING YOUR OWN MAT, as we'll have only a handful of extras on site that day.
