Each year, OmLuxe chooses to support a notable cause or organization advocating social change.
Since in 2013 we have choosen the Somaly Mam Foundation, Matt Damon's Foundation Water.org, The Big Life Foundation and the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
We believe in giving back and in helping others.
OmLuxe Participants have raised over $100,000 to date for these various NGO's and Charities.
We believe it's only when we are giving back that are we truly living our Dharma and contributing to Humanity and to the planet.

Compassion in Cambodia 2013
We journeyed to Cambodia to raise money and awareness for children and teen survivors of sex trafficking. We had the exciting opportunity to meet the girls, practice yoga and meditation with them, and visit the famous temples of Angkor Wat together. We raised a total of $54,000, which paid for their shelter, food, clothing and school supplies for an entire year.
Manifesting in Machu Pichu 2014
This unique and exclusive retreat was a journey of introspection, communal compassion, and spirited activism supporting Matt Damon's Foundation Water.org, a nonprofit organization committed to bringing safe water to millions who lack access to it. We Journeyed to Peru and Machu Pichu to a small village and visited a children's school. We were able to raise $13,500 to help water.org with their mission of providing clean water.
Inspiration in India 2015
During this adventure of a lifetime we journeyed to Kerala, India to reconnect with our spirit, awaken our minds, and get in touch with the deepest parts of our souls. For this retreat we raised $12,500 to help 25 women in rural India start their own tailoring business. This initiative addressed the basic needs of less privileged women by making them aware of their basic human rights and empowering them to become self-reliant.
