Do yoga. Feel good. Donate to TOHA. Feel even better!

Yoga Instructor Blossom Gilmour from Dili Yoga ( came up with a creative way to help us. She decided to donate all of the receipts from her March 2nd evening class to TOHA.  And THIS (below) is what we bought with the proceeds - dog food to be donated to the Dili Vet Clinic's animal shelter.  

Blossom may do another benefit class later in the year, too, so we'll let you know in advance and you can enter a blissed-out state through the ancient art of yoga and help us to protect animals in Timor-Leste at the same time!
What a good fundraising idea that was. If anyone else would like to explore ways of raising money for TOHA through business, we'd love to hear from you.
Thanks, Blossom!

In other news, TOHA-the-dog has received her first collar, in a rather fetching shade of mauve. She really did seem to be proud of herself, as you can see from the photo below, which is our new favourite picture of the TOHA mascot; she is already becoming a celebrity on Facebook ("like" our page here to get regular updates. You can also follow us on Twitter now: @tohatimor). TOHA has come such a long way since that dreadful night when we rescued her. She's bonding nicely with Vet Antonino do Karmo, who will soon help her through the next step: to learn to use a wheelchair so she can join him on his rounds and spread the TOHA message in person.
