    This Greenhouse Yoga Series Will Make You Forget It's Winter
    Doing yoga surrounded by greenery - even during winter - IS possible. This is a magical time of year for many reasons (Santa, presents, and the like) but it's especially magical because the Fairmount Park Conservancy is bringing back their annual plant-filled yoga series, which kicks off on Sunday, December 17th, in West Fairmount Park's Horticulture Center.

We're happy to see #Philly leading the way in smarter #philanthropic investing.... "A recent gift in Philadelphia could be the beginning of a hopeful trend in citywide, city-coordinated philanthropy."

    Urban Philanthropy in the Age of the Mega-Donation
    Mega-donations don't end up helping the parts of the city that need it most. Is there a better way to spread giving dollars around? Take a stroll through iconic public spaces like New York's High Line and Central Park or Chicago's Millennium Park. They are stunning.
