Give Wellness is my new nonprofit venture.
This project is inspired by all that I have learned since being diagnosed with DCIS in 2010.
The mission of Give Wellness is to give Free Wellness Workshops and Scholarships to under-served schools, individuals and groups.
HEALTHY Happy Hour Workshop:
- Participants learn tips and tricks for making easy, nutritious appetizers, non-dairy nut milks, power smoothies and healthy snacks.
- Schools, senior centers, cancer support groups and nonprofits may apply here for a FREE Workshop.
WELLNESS FOR CANCER* Scholarships
- Funds raised are given directly to people diagnosed with cancer (*or other serious life or health challenges).
Thank you to everyone who is joining me in my birthday wish to raise $5,100 to bring FREE wellness workshops and scholarships to people in need.
