Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

 

Four times each year we start a new 11 Week Total Health & Wellness Initiative here at Raw Food Rehab.  When the decision was made last year to begin to charge for participation in our 11 week programs ($33), I knew in my heart that I wanted to create some kind of opportunity for members of our website who were financially challenged to be able to participate. I had yet to formulate my plan when I received an email from RFR member Darlene Knight.

 

 

Here is a bit of what Darlene had to say:

"I have been doing raw food for three years but the Vault is what I've needed to stay in the zone and to help me stop tripping up during the winters. This is such an incredible community, where everyone is so involved and you can feel the love radiating. I enjoy motivating people, am so passionate about RAW and I feel so good inside when I help and inspire others.  I would like to donate funding to be able to help others who are financially unable to participate in the Vault. You have no idea what this would mean to me as my Grandma and Mom always gave to charity and took in the homeless and stray pets and faithfully gave to St. Jude's foundation and I know they are smiling at me from heaven!  My hope is that this simple gesture could change someones life tremendously."

Darlene's initial donation to RFR was how we created the Darlene Knight Scholarship Fund.  Her loving support and gracious, giving spirit was the beginning of something very significant because since the founding of the fund last year, we have been able to offer scholarships to nearly 100 members of this community!  Many generous members of RFR have joined with Darlene and I to donate funding in hopes that no deserving member will be turned away from being able to participate in our Initiatives.

We are always hoping to receive additional funding so that we can continue to offer placement to those members who qualify.  I have created a special donate feature on our RFR Paypal account so that anyone can donate at anytime and all proceeds will strictly be used for funding scholarships.  If a member wants to donate funds for a specific member, then they need to make that notation when the donation is made, otherwise the funds will just stay in the accounts and will be available as scholarships are approved by an advisory board.

If you would like to apply for a scholarship for our upcoming 11 Week Initiative, which includes membership to the Vault & the Weight Room, please send an email that explains your situation and your desire to join.  Our upcoming Total Health & Wellness Initiative - RAW BALANCE - will be kicking off on October 1st, 2011.  Please send your letter to me at my direct email  -pennishelton@gmail.com

All requests and grants will remain confidential and each request will be seriously considered and responded to.  Time is of the essence as the cut off to request scholarship placement for RAW BALANCE is Wednesday, Sept. 23rd. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and for your consideration of helping to support our mission here at Raw Food Rehab!

I can not afford to pay all the $33 I wish there was a payment plan, like have $5.00 taken out of my bank account every month or every 2 weeks. How about something like that?

You can apply for a scholarship.
Please send your letter to Penni at her direct email  -penniashelton@yahoo.com

All requests and grants will remain confidential and each request will be seriously considered and responded to.  Time is of the essence as the cut off to request scholarship placement for the Summer Initiative is Friday, June 24th.

In past decades when my daughter was younger, I was forced to rely upon "the kindness of strangers" in the way of scholarships so that my daughter could participate in sports, school, etc. at a time when I could not afford to provide those things.  It makes me happy to know that I can now 'pay it forward' for someone else!
