You are all probably familiar with the dana bowl at class, but another way you can practice generosity and support Against the Stream is to Adopt-a-Bill. We have two locations in the Los Angeles area and along with two lease payments come two sets of utility bills, insurance payments, and so on. If you would like to contribute something towards the power bill or buy toilet paper for a month or two, it would go a long way to help us support the 1,500 plus people who come through our doors for class each month.


Here’s a breakout of our average monthly running expenses for both Santa Monica and Melrose combined:


Water & Power           $70

Insurance:                   $250
