Wellness Weekend

March 20, 2009 · 0 Comments

So yesterday I was all existential on twitter, which I rarely do, so today I’ll mesh them on my blog. I’m declaring this weekend “wellness weekend” because I was passed three events happening in NYC that stimulate the psychological, spiritual, mental, and physical. Most are free or low cost. Check them out!

This week, my dear friend Yusef Ramelize, took on the issue of homelessness. No, he didn’t decide to volunteer at a soup kitchen. No he didn’t decide to give out change to someone he saw as he was exiting the platform. No he didn’t email his friends and tell them they should join a “homelessness sucks” cause on facebook. He decided to raise awareness about the issue of homelessness by getting a first person experience. Yusef is going homeless for one week.
