Special Newsletter – UTW Day 2016

We did it!

The 4th Annual Unfuck The World Day took place on Saturday, June 11, and like in previous years, people around the globe joined us in the celebrations by organizing positive actions in their hometowns.

==============================================================

In Cleveland, Ohio, Wild FreedOm Punk Yoga shook the planet with a session of punk yoga at The Beachland Ballroom and Tavern. UTW supporter Shel Greenberg Elba called her friends to action and asked everybody to bring a donation to benefit Waterloo Alley Cat Project & Friends of the Cleveland Kennel.

The Beachland Ballroom was the perfect location

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Mococa, Brazil, UTW supporters Guilherme and Felipe put together a beautiful event that included tree planting and a picnic with live music where everyone brought food that afterwards could be donated to the homeless.
