Sparking Joy by Giving Back
Children are at the heart of everything we do. Modi Joy is our means of raising donations for children's charities globally, through a variety of workshops and events designed to spark joy and curiosity. To date, we have donated over $3,000 for children's charities including Save the Children, Never Ever Give Up and Just Like My Child Foundation.
Here's how Modi Joy works: we host a workshop each month -- painting, photography, pilates or otherwise -- where participants have an opportunity to learn or refine a skill from an expert. All the proceeds from the registration fee, barring the cost of the event, go to a children’s charity. Since there are countless non-profit organizations committed to improving the quality of life for children around the world, we couldn't possibly just pick one. That's why, we ask the class instructor to select the charity of their choice, in exchange for them volunteering their time generously to teach.
Upcoming Event: 'Mom'osas & Samosas!
If you're a new-ish mom, join us for this informative event featuring these panel of experts:
Ashley Chanter Rizzo - Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant & Owner, Well Rested Baby
Tejal V. Patel - Mindfulness & Meditation Expert for moms and kids,
Author of upcoming book Meditation for Kids, and Host of The Time-In Talks podcast
Kristin Otero - Pediatric Occupational Therapist, SMPLY Therapy
Hyemyung Kim - Pediatric Dietitian, RD CNSC, CDLC, Riverfront Nutrition Associates
Guests will have an opportunity to network and hear firsthand how to best tackle some of the most common parenting challenges.
Proceeds from all Modi Joy events benefit a children's charity of the class instructor's choice. And this event is certainly no exception.
Funds raised from this event will be donated to Spread the Joy Foundation, a movement started by parents who endured the difficult chapter of pediatric hospitalization. Their mission is to alleviate some of this stress for other families with the help of a simple Joy Box, filled with items designed to lift a child's spirits. Specific items vary from month to month, but past items have included crafts activities, simple origami to calm minds, inspirational quotes to lift spirits, painting materials, seasonal decor, secret "Joy Missions", plain old silly jokes, riddles and "would you rather" dilemmas to keep families laughing!
Special thanks to our participating hosts and sponsors for their generosity:
