UNICEF's World Yoga Day Will Benefit Safe Drinking Water Cause

This year's focus is making safe drinking water available to all in Ethiopia

On Jan. 30 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. local time, teachers worldwide will offer benefit classes to support UNICEF and its idea that safe drinking water is a human right. This means that for a 24-hour period, yoga classes will be taking place with the intention of making safe drinking water available to one and all. The focus for 2011 is on Ethiopia.

Participants in these classes are encouraged to donate whatever they feel is appropriate; those who cannot afford to donate money can bring their positive energy. World Yoga Day 2010 raised $37,115 in donations for Médecins Sans Frontières.
