Dear TCF-

Thank you so much for the generous vocational grant that you awarded me. I was able to graduate with my yoga teacher training certification. I am now working with others – teaching them the healing science of yoga. Many people’s lives are improving because of my education. I am so grateful for CIRI Foundation. Without you guys I don’t know where I would be or how I would have been able to participate in this training.

THANK YOU!!!!

I thank you a million times over and over and over again! Thank you for doing such good work! Thank you for positive being role models in my life. I sincerely appreciate your kindness, care and concern for our CIRI community (and the community at large). I am feeling blessed because of you, The CIRI Foundation!

With much love and gratitude – Vanessa Standard
