Happy Monday! You may not know this, but after my corporate life, I moved into the hospitality world working at an event space in Soho. Hospitality is defined as the generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers. While day-to-day event planning is no longer part of my life, the same spirit of generosity remains in what I do today. After all, people won’t remember what you do, but they will always remember how you made them feel.

On Saturday, May 2, I’ll be doing a thirty minute dharma talk online via Zoom through NY Loves Yoga. Rather than a fee for the talk, we’re asking for donations (via PayPal) for City Harvest. City Harvest is New York City’s largest food rescue organization, helping to feed the nearly 1.2 million New Yorkers who are struggling to put meals on their tables. They will rescue 66 million pounds of food this year and deliver it, free of charge, to hundreds of food pantries, soup kitchens and other community partners across the five boroughs. You can sign up and donate here.

The work City Harvest does is needed now more than ever. Sometimes when we’re feeling a stuck; a little stingy towards ourselves and the world around us, a bit of generosity helps. Sign up for the class. Make a donation. It’s a win-win. You’ll make YOU feel good…and you’ll make someone else feel good.
