Ride The Wave Of Change is a bicycle ride across America to raise money for 3 awesome charities in the name of peace, change and sustainability. Meaghan Minogue leaves June 1st and is taking 4 months to complete her journey. Lets RIDE!!!!

My name is Meaghan Minogue. I am riding my bicycle across America beginning June 1, 2010. Leaving from Seattle, I will begin a long journey back to the east coast to Mystic, CT. I will travel through 20 different states raising money for charity. As a yoga teacher, one of my goals is to teach along the way. My desire is to bring awareness to the importance of sustainability, peace and change in a world whose pace is ever increasing.

The practice of yoga has helped me to become more self aware and compassionate towards myself. In turn, I have become more aware of my imprint on the world around me. Seva in Sanskrit means service. For some time, before the idea of this ride was birthed, I had wanted to do something incorporating what I am passionate about (yoga, travel, compassion, sustainable living among others) with raising money for charity that care about the same things. It was hard for me to choose just one charity, so I chose 3.

1-Playing For Change Foundation is an organization who has recognized the importance for change and peace. They use the power of music to unite people from different regions, cultures, economic status, religion, whatever divides us. There is power in music to uplift us and bring us together and they use this as powerful tool to do just that. The money you donate will go towards building schools for children in places that lack the resources to do so.

2-Trees for the Future has been in existence since 1989. A beautiful non-profit whose efforts are put to planting trees in areas that have seen much land degradation from deforestation. By using an agroforestry system, they aim to educate people and rebuild land to be sustaibable once again. Your donation will help us all breathe a lot better!!

3-Connecticut Chapter of Surfrider is the final non-profit that I will be contributing to. Surfrider and their members collaborate to keep our beaches and ocean waters clean and protect natural habitats so we can swim, surf, and play among our beloved coast lines. Your donation helps to keep our coast line pristine!!
