Interview with Lolly Galvin of Dignity Project

Lolly Galvin of Dignity Project

I became acquainted with Lolly Galvin of Dignity Project when she signed up for a free heart centered meditation course I was doing online.
Lolly is basically living out the principles of that course in her life. She went on to create The Dignity Project, basically on a lark. The Dignity Project has literally been an overnight success since Lolly had the first idea for it just a couple of months ago. She tells the story below.
She’s been taking homeless people to dinner, passing out Dignity Bags (bags of essentials like deodorant and nail clippers, tampons for women).
What is especially amazing is that every bit of the money from Dignity Project’s crowd funding goes to the homeless.
13116784_1739074099696869_117688819_nThe lesson Lolly and Dignity Project live out every day is that we get these great ideas about how we can change the world, and then we think that our idea is too naïve to idealistic and say it will never work. Lolly is proving that sometimes idealism is real and even practical. Go Lolly!!!
Head over to her Instagram and follow her. And donate to Dignity Project! Five dollars buys a homeless person at dignity bag .
It’s exciting to watch her project grow so rapidly. She records the giving, so you know where the money is going. Who knows how far she could go? Again, here’s her page with all the info about her project.

Share Your Work

  We’re looking for all kinds of submissions relating to meditation. High-quality photos, video, audio recordings, writing- journalistic or creative.

Right now, we’re especially on the lookout for these kinds of media in posts:

  • Video posts- anything from guided practice to vlogposts about meditation
  • Photo essays- photo series that document a story or experience with very few words

And these kinds of post categories and themes:

  • Guest Posts- all content in the post is totally yours- share your work with our audience
  • Posts in any medium about people with a meditation practice who might otherwise be considered unlikely meditators due to their work or other life circumstances
  • Posts about people with interesting but somewhat unconventional meditation practices (but not to the point of being kooky or outlandish)
