My name is Tony and I am a Licensed Massage Therapist in South Carolina. I have been practicing since March of 2012 and am always looking for avenues to grow individually and as a therapist.
I have established this site to fund my tuition for the volunteer program at Kalani Honua on the Big Island of Hawaii. Kalani is an educational non-profit organization that focuses on a celebration of Hawaii, nature, cultural diversity, and Wellness. Kalani has been a center of refuge and renewal for travelers the world over for more than three decades. It is beloved throughout the world and is the largest retreat center boasted by the Island of Hawaii. It is also the largest NGO provider of cultural and recreational services serving the poorest district of Hawaii.
I had been saving for this trip since May of 2012, but a series of unfortunate occurences caused me to deplete my savings account in order to support my mother and my brother. They have been working hard to get back on their feet and I am now able to resume my journey to Kalani to participate in the Volunteer Program as well as the Massage Therapy Apprenticeship Program. While on my journey, I plan to gain a greater understanding of myself, as well as my field of study and my calling.
As my date of departure (11/01/2013) draws nearer, I fear that I will not have enough funds to make the journey. So I am reaching out for the gift of kindness from friends and strangers (friends that I haven't met yet), to help me reach my goal. These funds willl help me with travel, but most importantly- my tuition in the volunteer program.
I can offer the modest reward of a Healing Stone for donations of $50 or a free two hour bodywork session for donations of $100 of more ( Must be in SC to receive). Any and all donations are greatly appreciated. I will be deeply greatfull for anything that you can offer.
Kalani Honua - harmony of heaven and earth
Thank you and safe journeys!!
