   Hello everyone! I know we have been a little quiet lately, but it's because we have great things in the works and can't wait to show you the final result! Our new board is confident that this year is going to be another great one for MWB, and we have wonderful things planned!
   So what are we up to? Well as you know from our last post we were helping Karen Heftman, a reflexologist in Illinois who lost her business in a terrible fire, and we had created an amazon wishlist for her. I am ecstatic to report that thanks to the generosity of our wonderful supporters Karen has received 19 items from her wishlist as well as some cash donations, and said she is beyond happy with what she has been blessed with. In fact, she mentioned to us that the only thing she really needs is a couple throw rugs. I have placed some in the wishlist if anyone feels compelled to continue the cycle of generosity. The link is: http://www.amazon.com/registry/wishlist/22AM4RXMGLXEE/ref=cm_wl_sb_v?reveal=unpurchased&filter=all&sort=date-added&layout=standard&x=10&y=10. We are so happy that we could help her transition of moving and restoring her business a little easier!
   We are also getting ready to print our 2014 T-shirt! Our facebook slogan contest was a success with our 2014 t-shirt slogan being chosen to be "Have a heart, lend a hand". We have a lot of sponsors this year and are excited to start makimg these shirts available to purchase so you all may wear them proudly and stand with us in our mission to help Therapists in need! Rock your shirt at work, at the gym, at your next CE class, or even just at home! Just know that as a Massage Without Borders supporter you are a part of our team! Stay tuned to our facebook page for announcements on when they will be available! Thank you to our MANY sponsors for your generous support!
   Want to meet us in person AND maybe win a basket of numerous goodies? Come see us at the Florida FSMTA conference in June, booth 610! MWB President Jennifer Wing and Executive Director Stephanie Block will be at the booth and would love to meet you! There will be a raffle going on full of lots of fantastic items, to be announced at a later date...but trust me you'll want to get in on this! Come by and say hi!
   Speaking of our board...we are looking to fill the position of 1st Vice President. Interested, or know someone who would be? Send us a resume and cover letter to Jennifer at presidentmwb@gmail.com! You'll be working alongside the board on day to day operations, and get to really get involved as a core member of our organization. Applicants with fundraising experience a plus!
