“We Rise by Lifting Others,” Robert Ingersoll


It all started when…

Our team member, community liason and certified yoga instructor visited Amboseli National Park, Nairobi, Kenya, Africa in February, 2018…We absolutely fell in love with these Massai Tribe children. We felt a duty, calling and sense of responsibility to give these children a face within our community and find a way to be of service.

At Melanin & Yoga, we firmly believe in giving back to communities in need. That IS the business we are in. We are always asking ourselves how can we be of service to others.

This led to the idea of our, “We Rise by Lifting Others,” campaign. This is a campaign focused on raising funds for our Massai Tribe friends in Nairobi, Kenya. The Massai Tribe children are in need of solar powered reading lamps so they can complete homework and read after sunset.

As you know, education can be the tool for these children to make and impact and change the socioeconomic destiny of their community.

Now, we need your help!

We are donating 100% of T-shirt sale proceeds, we begun a go fund me campaign and will also be donating 20% of all proceeds from our Nature, Yoga and Cider event at Bold Rock, Nellysford events on April 27th and May 18th to providing that community items such as the solar powered reading lamps and other needs that can help propel that community forward because, “We Rise by Lifting Others.”

Please consider ordering a shirt, making a donation via our Go Fund Me campaign to the cause, or joining us at Bold Rock Cidery, Nellysford to help us, make an impact.
