From April 18th through May 18th 2023, Kiss the Ground will be giving back 10% of all donations raised to Rooted Resiliency, a North American non profit selected by Lyla June, whose mission is to restore and define Indigenous wellness practices by empowering Indigenous people to live healthy, holistic and authentic lives.
Rooted Resiliency is in the formalizing stages and this seed money will help them to continue to build their organization. Your support makes a big impact.
