A Meditation Marathon, 20 Minutes on the 20th

Bond's friends have now joined the pledge! 

Our Son Bond (5) has been meditating since he was 18 months old. We’ve continued it as a daily habit and this year we’ve found the practice of meditation especially beneficial to him. He typically meditates for 5 minutes per day and some days he pushes himself to do 6 or 7 minutes. But he’s never done 20 minutes, just thinking about it I’m mind blown.  Each year at Christmas he receives gifts, he's fortunate. But he's learned other children aren't as fortunate and that mad him sad. And so, on December, 20th his goal is to meditate for 20 minutes to help raise money for the coalition for the homeless Holiday Toy Drive. His target is $2,000 ($100/Minute) to be raised so that other kids in NYC will be able have Toys at Christmas. On the morning of 12/20 he will be meditating live for what he hopes will be 20 minutes. If he raises $1,500 he will meditate for 15 minutes. A secret, he feels confident about 15 doing minutes, but knows the extra 5 minutes may go a long way. :)

On December 20th, please tune in to cheer him on and his friends. And if you can, support by donating to the link above, sending toys virtually to the coalition for the homeless which can be found on their site or donating a toy to any child in need wherever you live. He’ll be practicing from now until his big day! Wish him luck.
