Jason Patrick, also known as the "Bearded Yogi," is hosting "Big Love Weekend," two days of yoga, wellness, fresh juice, motivational talks and a dance party at the Breslin’s Liberty Hall at the Ace Hotel on Feb. 15-16.
The "Big Love Weekend" will benefit the organization "God's Love We Deliver," a NYC-based non-profit that cooks and delivers more than 1.2 million meals each year to those who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. Patrick, a yoga instructor, is holding the "Big Love Weekend" in conjunction with his birthday as a fundraiser out of selfless service
"I hold God’s Love We Deliver, and its important mission, so close to my heart,” said Patrick in a statement to The Huffington Post. “I was diagnosed as HIV-positive just a few years ago and was able to take care of myself with the support of my wonderful friends and community. But navigating the difficult realities of day-to-day living while living with a severe illness isn’t easy, and that’s why I have deiced to support God’s Love. I need to give back. By giving back to God’s Love, we can ensure that God’s Love can continue to cook and deliver more nutritious, individually-tailored meals to people in the NYC metropolitan area who are living with severe illness.”
