For more than forty years, Feathered Pipe Foundation, a small non-profit organization with a big heart, has been committed to bringing awareness to our greater society of under-served communities that deserve and need our support. These ‘good works’ as we like to call them, not only have the objective of raising much needed financial assistance, but more importantly turn the spotlight towards valued members of our human family that have rich cultural treasures and life experiences to share with us.
Past and present good work projects have focused our humanitarian efforts towards Native American communities, Tibetan refugee children and their families, Montanans living with HIV+/AIDS, and our returning veteran community. Please take a few minutes to read our most recent update and heartfelt appeal. Your support makes a huge difference!
“Let me be clear up front, there is zero shame in admitting one’s struggles in life — trauma, shame, guilt or uncertainty about the future — and asking for help.”
During this Memorial Day weekend, all of us here at the Feathered Pipe Foundation take pause to recognize all those within our communities that have chosen to serve with the highest intention of bringing about a more peaceful, inclusive and sustainable world. We continue in our mission to honor and serve those who have been marginalized or have been overlooked, foremost would be those struggling with the trauma of violence.
The Feathered Pipe Foundation is honored to have helped launch and continue to partner with Veterans Yoga Project, one of the leading non-profit organization serving our returning military. Founded by Dr. Daniel J. Libby to assist veterans struggling with reintegrating back into society and post-traumatic stress, Veterans Yoga Project offers healing programs and teacher trainings for veterans as well as those wishing to help them in developing effective strategies to truly heal and thrive after combat experience.
During this Memorial Day weekend, we would ask you to consider supporting Veterans Yoga Project efforts through your kind donation to their Light-a-Candle campaign. All proceeds will go towards further implementation of their valuable service to our returning veteran community. Through the practices of breath, meditation, mindful movement, guided rest, and gratitude, Veterans Yoga Project is empowering many to see beyond the trauma and discover the deep resilience we all possess.
We thank each and every one of you who continue to believe in us and support our efforts in manifesting a more peaceful, cooperative and compassionate world!
Faith & Effort,
Feathered Pipe Foundation
