The guests who join our classes have built our community at The Valley Om. As a collective, we’ve partnered with local charities and events to do more. Here’s what we’ve been up to!
December: Giving Tree
Third Street Alliance
2021 marked the 2nd year of Our Giving Tree to benefit the families and folks at Third Street Alliance, whose mission it is to inspire and equip women, children and families to live, learn and thrive.
Each ornament featured an item from a Third Street Alliance family wish list to be fulfilled and a tear off portion on which to right your name. As an offering of our gratitude our guests were entered into a raffle to win some sweet prizes!
December: Blue’s Winter Memorial Walk
To know us, is to know that we sure do love our dog companions...and pretty much any dog we see. We’re proud to support the Bleu Winter Memorial Walk in honor of one of the most charming and handsome doggos to ever grace Simon Blvd 💙
The event included a short walk on the Karl Stirner Arts Trail and a dog-centric meditation by one of your faves - Kate DeSisto! She even brought her sweet boy Blue. The collection boxes at many SILK businesses including ours to gathered donations to benefit Common Sense For Animals and the Arts Trail. Over $1,000 was raised.
October: Sage’s Benefit
Alysha, an esteemed Team Member at the Valley Om made an unexpected trip to the vet in October 2021, when Sage, her beloved pup wasn’t feeling well. It resulted in an exam, bloodwork, ultrasounds and x-rays. She found out that Sage had a mass on his liver that may or may not be cancer. The only way to find out would be an operation, which she's decided not to put him through at the age of 12.5.
We hosted a class at studio to raise much needed funds for Alysha and Sage. The price of the class was 25 with proceeds going to the GoFundMe that Alysha set up and each dollar was matched by the The Valley Om, raising over $1,000.
October: Easton Scarecrows
An exSTRAWdinary woman we want to bring to your attention is our Scarecrow! She is 1 of 31 scarecrows in the Easton area as part of Easton Business Association's (EBA) Scarecrow Event. This year the EBA will offer a weekly gift card giveaway to folks who post Instagram selfies with the scarecrows using the hashtag #EastonScarecrows. We offerred a free 30 minute massage session for the best feature of our gal with the hashtag #TheValleyOm
