There are two things I could do weekly: Get a massage and help others by paying it forward. True story.
When I found out that Massage Envy Spa DFW and the Arthritis Foundation were joining together to host Healing Hands for Arthritis, I wanted to know more. Healing Hands for Arthritis® is a one day fundraiser hosted at Massage Envy locations across the country, where $10 from every 1-hour massage or facial and 10% of select retail products sold on that day goes to the Arthritis Foundation, with additional donations available to be made before, during or after the event at any Massage Envy location.
On September 16, 2015, Massage Envy Spa will sponsor this in-clinic event across the nation to raise money and awareness about the devastating effects of arthritis on the body and how massage therapy can help relieve and control certain symptoms. And after you read these facts, you’ll see why this is so important:
- Since 2011, Massage Envy has raised over $3 million for the Arthritis Foundation through HHFA. With your help, we can raise more than $1 million this year.
- Arthritis impacts people of every age. Two-thirds of people with arthritis are under age 65, including 300,000 children.
- Arthritis is the nation’s leading cause of disability, costing more than $156 billion annually in lost wages and medical expenses – and the loss of 172 million work days.
Unfortunately, unless we stop arthritis, an estimated 67 million Americans – one in four – will be diagnosed with arthritis by the year 2030. So help where you can!
I’ve partnered with Massage Envy to give one lucky The Frugal Mom reader a gift card for a 1-hour massage (valid at any DFW Massage Envy Spa location!) That bed in the picture above looks inviting, right?!
