Also, January, 2011, I founded SWEET SERENITY MASSAGE FOR CHARITY CHANGING THE WORLD THROUGH CARING FOR KIDS. Sweet Serenity does massage for $1 a minute and 100% of all the monies goes to the Charities. So far in the last 3 years Sweet Serenity has done Charity Events for: Council on Aging raising money for the United Way, Breast Cancer Research, Bark for Life for the American Cancer Society, Organ Donation. Our Big Event each year is at the World Massage Festival www.worldmassagefestival.com where we raise funds for the Shriners Hospital Children's Burn Unit in Greenville, SC. We pay all out own expenses as we do not have any corporate sponsoring, and give back 100% keeping nothing for ourselves. Last year 2011, the World Massage Festival was in North Carolina, this year, Las Vegas, Nevada, and next year Long Beach, California. If you are attending this event will you please help us raise funds for the children? Sweet Serenity is  Massage Therapists giving back because of a profession that they love. It is such a wonderful feeling giving back. We do these charity events year round as we are asked.

This is what goes on in Pensacola, FL the last Friday in October for the last 3 years,

AMTA, ABMP, FSMTA, and MTAA all came together today in Pensacola, FL at the VA Clinic for the Homeless Standdown. FREE Chair Massage was available along with free haircuts, food, medical, dental, new clothing, new sleeping bags and much more for the over 600 homeless who came for the event. We all had a ball.—

Thank you for sharing, Darcy. It is wonderful that you work with peers from all associations to give back to the veterans and their families. It is even more wonderful that you donate massage monthly and not just once a year. Thank you for sharing your story with us all.

This is what goes on in Pensacola, FL every month. We just do not do it one week out of the year. The last Tuesday of every month you can find many of us at the VA Clinic  on Hwy 98. Also,  it is not just ABMP. We all get together and go and Honor our Veterans. 

Yesterday we had an excellant turn out at the VA Clinic in Pensacola, FL Many Therapists to help give FREE Chair massage to our Verterans and their families. The kicker is, there was a mixture of ABMP, AMTA, FSMTA, and MTAA. I just love it when all the Assoiciations and Organizations come together in Pensacola, FL for the cause. We all get along so well. I wish for more of this all over America. There were at least 2 therapists from each association and organization. We had a ball.

Hi Kerstin, Great! We are happy that you plan to participate this year! It sounds like you have a great plan in place. That is great that you plan to get your students involved. Are you planning to borrow a vinyl banner from ABMP to use on site at the food pantry?  Here are some ways to reach out to the local media to gain awareness for your event. Good Luck!

Hi Hannah, Welcome to the group! Your idea sounds great! It sounds like you will be making a big impact on your community by not only donating money, food, and toys, but also massage work to those who might not otherwise be able to afford it. Let us know how the event turns out, as always we welcome you to send pictures of your event to differentstrokes@abmp.com for inclusion in the Different Strokes member newsletter. Have you started making marketing materials yet, or are you going to borrow a vinyl banner for your event? Good Luck with your event!

Hi Hannah

Yes, I am planning to participate this year which will be my first time. I am planning to offer free chair massages at a local food pantry and offer massages for a low price for table massage. I am instructor and plan to take my students to a local food pantry too. These food pantries are in different towns.
