During last year's CrowdRise Holiday Challenge, our awesome team members and donors helped us raise over $40,000, which allowed us to offer thousands of healing moments to hundreds of children with cancer- at home, at hospice, and in the hospital.
As Lucy's Love Bus has expanded, we noticed a great need for a healing PLACE for our families and our community to gather and grow together. We are so pleased to introduce The Sajni Center, our brand new healing space in Amesbury, Massachusetts! We will be filling this glorious space with love and light, guided by Lucy and Sajni, in providing innovative workshops and programs for those who need them.
This was all inspired by our dear Sajni Chakrabarti, who left us far too soon on July 1st, 2017, at eight years old. She was a lover of elephants, a rider of horses, the best big sister to her little sister Anandi, beloved daughter of Vanessa & Prabal, and a smiling friend to all who knew her. We are honored to dedicate our new home of healing to her.
With this year's Holiday Challenge, we are aiming to raise enough money to run 12 full months of programming at The Sajni Center! Meeting our fundraising goal of $60,000 will allow us to run multiple programs each month including:
Parents As Healers: Safe Massage Techniques
Children As Healers: Reiki Workshops for Children
Look Great, Feel Better! Makeover Days for Teens and Caregivers
Parenting and Partnering though Illness
Meditation: Relief for Chronic Pain
Aromatherapy for Nausea and Anxiety
Processing Your Experience: Art Therapy for Survivors
Sing it Out! Music Therapy for Kids in Treatment
Drum it Out! Drumming out the Anger
