"I see you in me, and me in you." - Thich Nhat Hanh
WHO WE ARE: Established in 2016 as an extension of Anchor Yoga, Anchor Chain Foundation promotes interconnectedness on a local, national, and international scale through community service and outreach. By combining the core foundations of classical yogic and Buddhist traditions -- namely selfless service (seva) and generosity (dāna) -- the foundation LINKS all human beings through a CHAIN of kindness.
WHAT WE DO: The Anchor Chain Foundation sponsors yoga-related fund-raising events, generosity-based classes and mindfulness programs to raise money for the foundation.
LOCALINKS: Anchor Chain Foundation distributes a percentage of its funds specifically to individuals and families in need on a case-by-case basis in and around the south coast of Massachusetts, the home base of Anchor Chain and the physical location of Anchor Yoga. It is our belief that the person with the greatest need just might be your neighbor.
GLOBALINKS: Anchor Chain Foundation undertakes annual international service-centered trips to address specific social issues facing that chosen country. Each trip's focus is two-fold: To raise awareness to a specific social issue and to offer yoga and meditation programs to those we are helping.
