Friends of Santa Barbara,
Please forgive me for not posting this sooner, as the last few weeks have been absolute madness in my world. I would like to officially announce that all of the money raised by the wonderful supporters of the 2018 Fight the Slides Ride has been apportioned and donated to 3 separate entities as of today, 4/11. They are:
1) The Unity Shoppe of Santa Barbara (30%)
2) The Santa Barbara Bucket Brigade (30%)
3) La Casa de Maria Retreat Center of Montecito (40%)
I chose La Casa de Maria Retreat Center for a few reasons, however I think that their mission statement best sums up my feelings towards the local community, as well as my community of amazing supporters and donors all over the world. Their goal is: to cultivate spiritual growth, to foster understanding and respect for diverse cultural and spiritual traditions, to promote the common good of our communities through art, education and health and healing, to nurture a culture of peace and social justice, and to renew the earth.
For information on any of the organizations, please google search them, and for any specific inquiries as to why I donated to these 3 organizations, please send me a direct message.
I cannot thank you enough for this experience, giving me the opportunity to help others through the support and kindness of my network of amazing humans. Thank you friends of Santa Barbara, and ride on!!
