PARTICIPATE … AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE During this year's EveryBody Deserves a Massage Week, you can do something big or you can do something small: • Ask your clients to participate in a canned food drive for the local food bank. • Donate a portion of your week's earnings to your favorite charity. • Volunteer chair massage services for staff at your local hospital or fire station. • Schedule a spa day of self-care for residents at a nearby women's shelter. • Create an event where you educate the community about massage (e.g., free chair massage at Whole Foods, or gather a crew to offer massage at a local 10K race). Giving from the heart doesn't need to be just a once a year activity—you can make volunteerism a part of your business plan, because it really is good business. The people you educate, the connections you make, the bodies you touch, and the impact you have, will all come back to benefit your business in one way or another.
