Charity of the Month: Zen Hospice Project

For Goodness Sake is constantly striving to highlight organizations and companies that are doing good in our community.  We are excited to kick off the fall with our first featured Charity of the Month— Zen Hospice Project.

 Since 1987, Zen Hospice Project has developed groundbreaking programs and services to bring mindfulness and compassionate care to the dying, their caregivers, and the bereaved. Through a range of services that include direct care at their Guest House, educational programs and inspirational support, they have served more than 31,000 people. Their primary geographic focus is the Bay Area but their impact and models have national and international relevance:

We create a space for living that offers the opportunity for individuals, their loved ones and caregivers to find comfort, connection and healing in this shared human experience. Through our pioneering model of care, we inspire each other to live fully.”

For Goodness Sake is proud to support such an innovative organization that brings compassion, love, and support to those in need in our community.  Through partnerships with TED Talks and IDEO, Zen Hospice is on the frontier of changing the way people think and talk about terminal illness.

In honor of their upcoming event, Story + Spirit on October 7th at the Terra Gallery in San Francisco, For Goodness Sake. is donating 25% of every purchase of our travel wraps to Zen Hospice Project for the month of September.  These stunning wraps are hand made in Ecuador out of a soft, comfortable fabric that’s machine washable and available in gorgeous, subtle colors. A great travel accessory for wherever your spirit takes you.
