How do we decide who to support? Well, we actually have a team of local kids helping with this noble task. In 2013 the Cho's Academy Youth Outreach Initiative was launched. The initiative is designed to educate local kids about our responsibility to give back, the various means in which we can make positive contributions, and to give them the experience of independently organizing efforts and taking action in support of worthy causes. Ultimately, empowering those involved with the understanding and awareness that their actions make a difference and to be proactive with their efforts.
Each year a small group of volunteers (Annual YOI Team) work together from roughly March through November. In 2013 the team raised 4k for the Red Cross, which coincidentally timed well to help those in the Philippines devastated by Typhoon Haiyan. In 2014 the team raised nearly 3k in support of Operation Underground Railroad, an organization dedicated to fighting and ending child trafficking and slavery--as mentioned above additional funds from our donation yoga program also contributed to this organization.
