Throughout this month I have been keeping my eye open for things that I am truly grateful for. I didn’t want to come up with stuff that I should be grateful for and write about them. I wanted things that leave my heart happy. This topic wasn’t hard to come up with today. When I first heard about it, I literally could not stop smiling for a while. I got so excited, I could not stop praising God for His wonderfulness.
I am so excited and incredibly appreciative of Serenity Health and Wellness in Maumee, Ohio. I first contacted them about helping me with prizes for the Euchre tournament at my fundraiser. I had only been there twice, but my masseuse mentioned that Serenity likes to do donations for fundraisers. I figured they would do a 50% off massage, or $25 gift card towards their services, but they went well beyond that and that was just the start. For the winning team of the Euchre tournament they offered gift certificates for a free hour-long massage plus a 30 minute infrared sauna treatment. That was an $80 value for each person on the winning team. That alone was awesome. Then they went above and beyond that by offering to set up a referral program for me. For every new customer they get that mentions my name at their first session they will donate money to my launch fund (the fund that gets me to Germany including flight, shipping container, language school, etc.). They then handed me a stack of VIP coupons to hand out to people at my fundraiser that gives the new customers $10 off a massage (I still have some if anyone is interested). This means if you get a cheaper than normal massage, we both get a little relaxation!
I was completely floored by the generosity of Serenity Health and Wellness. I hope you all will join me in prayer to bless them for being a blessing to me.
