Santosha Yoga urges you to “Be The Match”

For the thousands of people diagnosed every year with life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, a cure exists. Over the past 25 years “Be The Match,” operated by the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), has managed the largest and most diverse marrow registry in the world. They work every day to save lives through transplant. This is a non-profit organization and they need donors.

We at Santosha Yoga encourage everyone between the ages of 18 and 44 to sign up to be a donor at Be the Match. A long time book club friend has a daughter who planned to marry and move to Russia where her husband-to-be was to be posted. Her pre-travel routine tests uncovered a leukemia and they began chemo immediately as well as a search for a blood marrow match. That’s how we learned of the ongoing need for donors. We are encouraging those who can to sign up to be a donor. Even if donating doesn't help our friend, we want to be sure that there are enough donors (of blood, stem cells, etc.) for those who are waiting.

Sunset CU donates time and supplies to educate Washington County students about money

Sunset Credit Union is on a mission. They want to help teach every student in Washington County how to manage money and the importance of saving.

Sunset Credit Union

The credit union, whose tagline is ‘Financial Solutions for Every Stage of Your Life’—has donated staff time and other resources to visit Washington County schools teaching youth about money and money management.

“We know teachers are very busy, and that most schools are too strapped for resources to teach kids about finances,” said Rhonda Baggarley, President/CEO of Sunset Credit Union. “However, money-management skills are lifetime skills, and we feel it’s our responsibility to teach as many kids as we can about how money works.”

“So far, we’ve been in seven Washington County schools this year and have taught approximately 900 students valuable money literacy courses. We also are offering two $2,000 scholarships to graduating Washington County seniors. Plus, now until the end of April, any child that opens an account at Sunset Credit Union will automatically be entered to win $100.”

The credit union has specialized accounts for kids and teens, and offers free educational seminars for all school-age groups. If you would like to learn more about their financial education courses and classes, send an email to or stop by their office (1100 NW Murray Blvd.) during business hours. You can also reach them at 503.643.1335.
