New Yorkers For Children is a non-profit responsible for improving outcomes of youth in the child welfare system with a focus on foster care and those who have aged out of care. Since the onset of COVID-19, the organization has seen quadruple the number of requests to meet the most basic living expenses. In response NYFC is distributing emergency grants to help with rent, utility bills, groceries, cleaning supplies and so much more. No donation is too small and can help ensure NYC’s most vulnerable children have access to basic needs during this pandemic. If you'd like to help, please do so here.


Freaking out? You're not alone—and you're not malfunctioning. We're in a moment of uncertainty and anxiety. Hence our new experiment: Ten Percent Happier LIVE.    

Every weekday, we'll offer a free live sanity break, featuring our host, Dan Harris, and some of the world's best meditation teachers, streaming from their homes to yours. We'll start with a five minute meditation, and then take questions from the audience.
