Hello and welcome to our blog! We're thrilled you're here. As we approach the end of 2023, Inner City Bliss is delighted to invite you to participate in our
fundraiser. Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement inspiring people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. At Inner City Bliss, we're harnessing this spirit to empower communities of color through our innovative, trauma-informed mindfulness programs.
Our Commitment to Cultural Competence and Healing
We are deeply committed to cultural competence and providing healing resources for marginalized communities. Through our carefully curated mindfulness-based programs, we strive to promote healing, tranquility, and self-awareness. Our aim is to foster a sense of belonging, unity, and resilience in the communities we serve.
Our Fundraising Goal: Empowering More Communities in 2024
With your support, we're looking to raise $50,000 to fund our initiatives throughout 2024. These funds will allow us to offer 30 free mindfulness workshops tailored for young individuals, 4 free Nature Day Outings throughout the year, and 30 additional workshops specifically designed to support BIPOC-owned businesses in Oakland.
Community & School-Based Program
We're passionate about reaching more schools and community centers, especially those in underserved areas. Our Community & School-Based Programs are trauma-informed, mindfulness-based workshops offered free of charge or on a donation basis to ensure accessibility. We believe in the power of mindfulness to inspire positive change, and we're committed to making these benefits accessible to all.
ICB Wellness Coalition
At the heart of our organization is the ICB Wellness Coalition, a team of local black healers dedicated to offering nature-based community activities. These activities are tailored specifically for communities of color, reflecting our dedication to cultural competence and inclusion. We're firm believers in the therapeutic benefits of exposure to nature, and our goal is to promote outdoor mindfulness and self-care practices within these communities.
Wellness in the Workplace
In addition to our community and school-based initiatives, we're excited to collaborate with local businesses to provide mindfulness-based wellness programs for their employees. Our 'Wellness in the Workplace' initiative is designed to foster a positive work environment while prioritizing mental health in the workforce.
