If you have ever received a massage or been lucky enough to have me rub your shoulders, you know some of the benefits of massage. Now think of growing up with never being touched in a kind and healthy way. People often think of massage as just a feel good luxury, however there is much more to massage. Massage has an affect on every system of the body. To mention just a couple benefits, there have been numberous studies finding that massage stimulates the vagus nerve and releases oxytocin (a "stress reducing" hormone) which helps in healthy development of infants and children. Nurturing touch and massage are essential to well-being.
As you may have heard, I have exciting news! I'm going to Vietnam for a couple weeks in December 2010! I'll be doing an outreach volunteer program with the Liddle Kidz Foundation. Out of 700 applicants a team of 24 individual has been selected. As a member the volunteer team I will be teaching and providing massage and nurturing touch to children in orphanages and other child care facilities. Being on a trip such as this has been a long time dream and I'm thrilled that it is becoming a reality.
I do need some help. Of couse this cost good ol' cashola and Non-profit organizations can't do all the fundraising. I've set up this page in hopes that you can help. Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too! I'll be sure to keep you updated on the happenings of the trip and how it makes an impact on the children in Vietnam as well as what I do when I return to the states.
In the meantime call, email, message, send smoke signals, whatever if you have questions or other support.

Hugs and chocolate kisses!
