Coming Soon: Get Care, Give Care Month!
With the recent and ongoing disaster along the Gulf Coast, horrific flooding in India/Nepal/Bangladesh and forest fires close to home, I'm compelled to do something to help. After thinking about how I could use my skills and time to somehow contribute to relief efforts, I've come up with an idea I'm super excited about.
In the coming weeks, I'll be making an announcement on how you can easily participate in my "Get Care, Give Care" campaign. Not trying to be mysterious, I just need to nail down some details before I share them. The general idea is that you will be able to book an appointment with me for an acupuncture treatment and a portion of proceeds will be donated to a disaster relief organization.
If you want to get a jump on things so you don't miss out, feel free to book an appointment for October on a Monday or Wednesday morning.
With all the negative news swirling around us at break-neck speed, this will be an opportunity for you to get some self care while you also do good. For me, I will be able to do what I love - helping others - two-fold!
In 1993, I was a Sophomore in college, far from home when record flooding impacted the Missouri and Mississippi River Basins. My family farm along the Missouri was flooded and my own family were impacted. Although we fared well, I can't help but recall the images from touring the area shortly after the waters receded. Whole portions of railroad tracks torn up, mud to the chair rail in my grandmothers farmhouse, the roof of a barn just sitting in the middle of a field, lakes where there was a field, and buried cement casket boxes lost in rushing waters. We were so fortunate that no one from my family was injured or financially devastated. Others were not so lucky. Whole towns had to move, lost arable farm land bankrupted smaller farmers, and the losses were indiscriminate. As global climate change continues to increase these events, communities around the world need help and I'd like to do what I can!
Stay tuned and in the meantime, pace yourself and engage in self-care (because I know you are all already taking care of others)!
