I’ve been volunteering my fitness and wellness services at one of the Homeless Shelters in San Jose. The women and children have been giving me such positive feedback on the benefits of the activities we do together. They have been feeling more optimistic and are learning about the importance of fitness and taking “mental vacations”.
Some have requested I come more often and others suggested I expand to other shelters in the area. So, I’m doing it!
I’m applying for non-profit status for my services. This will allow me to apply for grants to cover expenses and spread the love.
I am planning a Fundraising for Fitness event to cover the $400 application fee for the IRS. I'm shooting for June 22, 2013. If anyone has done this before, has any helpful tips, wants to donate their time or equipment please contact me by clicking the orange "Contact Wendi" button
Have a wonderful and healthy day!!!
