Pledge A Ringgit™ was founded by Raymond Lim and Angeline Liew on 1 December 2013. This unique programme is Prana Yoga KL’s ongoing social commitment through the “Yoga Gives Back” initiative of “Seva”, which means ‘selfless service’. It is through our practice that we contribute to society, and spread love, joy, hope, courage and strength through a borderless, global yoga community.
Prana Yoga and Pledge A Ringgit™ believe in creating positive social change and supporting the welfare of 5 Key Areas : Children, Women, Education, Environmental and Wildlife Conservation.
How Can You Contribute?
Every time you come for a class at Prana Yoga KL, we will allocate RM 1 to Pledge A Ringgit™ fund, from there the accumulated amount over the months will be contributed to various charity organisations. Know that you can help change a life, every time you practice yoga with us.
