Because of your generosity, we surpassed our $10,000 Giving Tuesday donation goal! We are so grateful for all the supporters who showed up for male survivors today! Now, we challenge you to continue this momentum with the opportunity to help us surpass our $90,000 goal before the end of the year!
NEW “WEEKENDS OF RECOVERY 20th ANNIVERSARY” VIDEO
We premiered our newest video last night at the Giving Tuesday Live Event. This retrospective thirty-minute “20th ANNIVERSARY” video features four WOR Alumni and four Facilitators – giving voice to the variety of experiences that have emerged since the first WOR was conducted in September 2001 thru our 90th WOR that was just conducted in November 2021. This video will be archived on our website and our YouTube Channel.
This video is also available with Spanish subtitles
ANNOUNCING OUR 2022 EVENT SCHEDULE
Dates, locations, and other basic information about our 2022 events is now available on our website! We have scheduled a mixture of in-person events as well as continuing a number of virtual events with online accessibility.
Here is a brief summary of our revised registration pricing policy for 2022:
MenHealing is committed to equity of financial accessibility for Weekends of Recovery (WOR). We believe that healing should not be impeded by economic limitations. We want everyone to be assured access regardless of financial resources. Registration fees cover the actual costs for conducting a WOR and are not to generate a profit. The fees are inclusive of lodging (two nights), food (seven meals), and program services. In congruence with our financial philosophy, we expect those who can afford to pay the entire actual price for a WOR to do so. However, we will now allow registrants for double or triple occupancy rooms who are unable to pay the entire cost to submit payment for an amount that better reflects their budget. We will require a minimum payment of 10% of the actual cost.
MIXED-MEDIA ART WORKSHOPS: ART FOR FUN AND CONNECTION
Create, express and connect in our mixed-media art workshops that focus on personal expression, connection with others, and pure enjoyment! During the workshops, you will create art objects using a wide variety of art materials. Explore mixed-media art as a tool to increase self-awareness, manage stress, promote: mindfulness, empowerment and healing. No artistic talent or experience is required.
Margaret Hunter (WOR Facilitator) will be hosting a series of three virtual ninety-minute Mixed-Media Art Workshops. The online series will be offered three different times, each series conducted on the last three Sunday evenings of January, February, and March. Art materials will be provided in advance of sessions. Registration will be FREE – with donations welcomed from participants. Registration is now open for all three series.
We are very grateful to each of YOU who have already donated to our Campaign to raise $90,000 in the final 90 days of 2021. Please consider whether YOU can join us in reaching our goal by making a donation of any amount during these final 30 days in December. And, please help us to reach other potential donors by your personal outreach to family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors.
MenHealing is able to manage our activities because of deeply committed individuals such as YOU. We invite YOU to help sustain our work by making a donation of any amount. 85% of our operating budget is received from grassroots individual financial donations from supporters like YOU. A GIFT OF FINANCIAL SUPPORT COMMUNICATES TO MALE SURVIVORS THAT “YOUR STORY MATTERS.”
Remember, YOU can make a difference for male survivors by forwarding this newsletter to anyone or any organization that you think would benefit. Thanks for spreading the word!
