Enhancing our compassion and connection with one another.

Dear Friends,

How often do you find yourself scrolling, reading, and even responding – mindlessly – through the barrage of texts, news clips, emails, videos, and blog posts that flow through our day? We’re constantly fed a steady stream of information that lacks a mindful connection.

Our mission to connect mindfully and live fully is rooted in compassion for ourselves and one another. Cultivating this compassion takes individual intention propelled by the power of community. I’m asking you to join our community of donors on Giving Tuesday, December 1 to enhance our compassion and connection with one another. To support this mission, we have the opportunity to unlock a $5,000 matching gift – but only if we can raise the same amount by Dec 1.

Can you help us earn this $5,000 matching gift and give today? Donate here.

While mindfulness doesn’t change the circumstances of our reality it does help us manage the stress of our situations and anchor our responses in compassion and gratitude. As one of our course participants shared, “…this opened up my life to a new approach, to a life of kindness, gratitude, and peace.”

I’m aware that there is a lot being asked of you, of each of us, right now. And the uncertainty we’re all facing can feel overwhelming. But there is a specific action you can take today that will have an immediate and tangible benefit for our community. A gift today will support our mindfulness programs for teachers, healing professionals, emergency personnel, and community members, providing the foundation for connection, compassion, and awareness that we all need. Donate here.

With much care,

Stephanie Romero, Ed.D.
Founder & Executive Director
Awaken Pittsburgh

Our small but mighty operation is made possible through a team of dedicated, part-time staff and a large network of volunteers and supporters like you.

Awaken Pittsburgh, a 501c3 non-profit organization, relies on the generosity of our community to achieve our mission of fostering well-being, empathy, and compassion for all. Your support helps mindfulness practitioners reach individuals across the Greater Pittsburgh Area through evidence-based programs, activities, and events.

Every life changed was made possible with the help of donors—like you–grantors, community partners, and dozens upon dozens of

volunteers. This is a team effort! We hope you will consider supporting our organization today by becoming a monthly donor or by making a gift in an amount that feels meaningful to you.
