Yoga Mats For Haiti?

Most of us haven't thought about our leisure/exercise equipment being needed in Haiti, but according to one sharp photographer in San Francisco, you can donate your used yoga mats for use in areas in need of disaster relief.

Apparently it does exist. The photo below is just one example. A quick online search reveals Yoga for Trauma, an organization that seeks help relieve stress and encourage "mindfulness" after a disaster. They've initiated Project Haiti, to bring yoga instructors and equipment to the region.

Effective or superfluous? You be the judge. (via boingboing)
