Heart to Heart  Donor Notes
As always, every gift matters; we are grateful for your generosity.

from Ann Swanson, Donor Development Coordinator

At the Christine Center’s New Year’s Eve celebration, we literally rang bells and howled like wolves as we said good-bye to 2016 and welcomed in the New Year. And do we have things to howl about! In 2016,

  • Your enthusiasm made it possible to meet our $5000 goal for #GivingTuesday.
  • Your commitment to the Christine Center’s mission of spiritual deepening for global transformation helped us raise over $45,000 for the 2016-2017 Annual Christmas fund.

In 2017, we look forward to deepening our connection with you. Stay tuned for more information about the "Dedicate Your Day" and the 2017 Yoga Festival fundraising event.

You have made it possible for us to continue to create opportunities for all seekers to transform, heal and create a life of spiritual depth. We feel blessed and most grateful for you and your generous spirit.

May you receive all of God’s blessings throughout the New Year!
