A small group of women in Princeton have been working all summer to raise money for the Canadian charity Save The Children Canada, with funds raised directed toward helping the children and families in Japan who have been effected by the tsunami disaster that happened in the spring of this year.
Local mothers have raised money with local events such as a Children’s Clothing flea market, a huge garage sale, and most recently with our Reiki Clinic by donation with fund raised totaling over $2000.00.
Most recently Cathy Montgomery, Marylou Terryberry, Leanne Petschl, June Hope, Lyn Thomas and Jamie Holloway all donated their time and energy during the Saturday Traditional Music Festival, by offering 30min Reiki treatments by donation. We are happy with the turn out, and are even happier to be donating more money toward this cause. The Children and families in Japan still need our help, and we hope that our local efforts not only help them financially, but also reminded people that these families are still struggling to rebuild their lives. Another bonus of the clinic, was that we were able to engage with the local residents and talk about what Reiki is, many people have heard about Reiki, but are not sure what it is. A simple answer is that.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.
A huge thank you to our sponsors, Dr. Berry at Vermilion Chiropractic Center in Princeton for generously donating his office space for our Reiki clinic, without this prime location to the music festival, our fund-raising and awareness campaign would not have been as successful.
Thank you to local businesses, A Touch of Hope and Mind Body and Spirit wellness, for donating the use of their massage tables, and to the Princeton Reiki girls for donating their time.
Thank you to Princeton Spotlight for their ongoing media coverage of all our events, and last but not least, thank you to the local residents that took part in our Reiki Clinic by donation.
We have a few more fund-raising events up our selves for the fall, so keep you eyes open for future ads in the Spotlight so you can come out and support our efforts in helping the children and families in Japan.
