Thank you to all who have been voting for Flowers Fields in the I Am Yoga Warrior contest.
If Flowers wins this contest, she has pledged the entire $10,000 prize toward Gentle World’s 40th anniversary fundraiser, to be used for the expansion of our online vegan education.
Because of the support from our readers, as of this writing, Flowers has made it to round four, and is currently in first place in her group!
Here’s the key at this point: She needs to be in first place on April 8th in order to make it to the next round.
We’re asking all our supporters to help Flowers and Gentle World by voting daily to help Flowers advance to the next level.

In Flowers’ own words:
On March 9th I will be celebrating my 61st trip around the SUN 🌞 and I am a vegan for 40 years. My friends tell me I am an inspiring example.
WHAT DOES YOGA MEAN TO YOU / HOW DOES YOGA ENHANCE YOUR LIFE?
Yoga is Union between our consciousness and the consciousness of the world. Yoga is to unite, creating harmony between the mind and body, our life and all life. Yoga enhances my life by bringing calm, peace, strength, and flexibility, and pushes me out of myself into a higher being.
WHAT WORDS OR MANTRA DO YOU LIVE BY?
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Give, share, be kind, be loving, be compassionate. All life is sacred. Live and let live.
WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH THE $10,000?
My intention with entering is to help create a compassionate world. If I win, I will donate the entire prize to www.GentleWorld.org, a nonprofit that is very dear to my heart. Gentle World is the longest-running vegan nonprofit community. They are on a mission to spread veganism, and they have been around since the two founders became vegan in 1970. It’s their 40th anniversary as a 501(c)(3) educational organization, and they are working hard to expand their vegan education programs.
