The vision of this fund is to provide support and stress relief based services to those working above and beyond, faced with unknowns, and sacrificing their livelihood for the collective.
Think of it like a “pay it forward” chance to heal and release some stress.
Healing is so much more than reaction to an illness, injury or trauma. Often services that promote healing and recovery are inaccessible to populations who need them the most. This is different from pro-bono and sliding scale services in that the practitioner is fully funded and the service receiver is too.
The privilege of healing often only extends as far as available resources. Healing can only happen when there is a safe, accessible space to begin. What might our communities be like if everyone had the opportunity to access healing services?
Through support from the community this fund supports practitioners and local businesses in offering healing and stress relief based services to those who need it most. In return, community health flourishes.
Your support and contributions will go towards providing sponsored sessions to those in communities most affected by stress/overwhelm. Currently our focus is offering stress relief services to those impacted heavily by Covid: whether working on the frontlines or suffering from extraordinary circumstances. It is our belief that community wellbeing stems from individual wellbeing.
Services provided from the fund:
- Funded sessions via a local practitioner.
- Sponsored meals and gift certificates from local restaurants and businesses.
The mission: support local businesses while offering healing services to the community.
Nominations do not require a donation, however if you're able to contribute even a little to the fund it would go a long way to reaching all our nominees!
Services offered may be from my practice or from other participating practitioners in our community.
Nominees may receive a funded session from a local practitioner (if you know that they have a practitioner they know and love, feel free to mention and we can fund towards that person) OR a gift certificate to a local restaurant or business. If you feel they would prefer one over the other, please let us know!
