The Gift of Wellness

Right now our Gifts Team is gearing up for our 3rd Annual Wellness Day, previously named Spa Day.  Our Portland team is incredibly excited about this new approach on pampering. In previous years we’ve treated our clients with getting their hair, makeup and nails done but we’ve decided to take a whole new route this year. We have been reaching out to different community specialists such as massage therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, yoga instructors, naturopaths, and different spa professionals who are willing to donate their time and skills for our event. We want to also incorporate aromatherapy, essential oils and tips about self-care. We decided to change the event from Spa Day to Wellness Day because we believe everyone should be caring for their emotional and mental-self as well as their physical.
At The Cupcake Girls, we think overall wellness is important for our clients, volunteers, staff and everyone else. We know our clients work hard and we want to utilize this event to care for them. We hope to make sure they leave feeling rested and rejuvenated. As the Gift’s Team Director, I want to make sure our gifts are an important part of that and reflect our goals for this event.
We will be preparing 30 gifts for clients that we hope will attend this event. The gifts will be reusable tote bags filled with items to promote self-care and relaxation. Our gifts bags are intended to be total wellness kits. This includes everyday things they can use for their own, at-home, self-care.
Want to be apart?!
As The Gifts Director I will be at our office every Monday this month from 7-9pm to work on our Wellness Day gifts. We also have our monthly team meeting on July 13th. If you would like to donate your time to help prepare Wellness Day gifts, please join us, we would love to have you!
We are also still rounding up supplies for these gifts. If you would like to donate supplies, gifts or a gift card towards these purchases please contact me at alyssa.underwood@thecupcakegirls.org or pdxinfo@thecupcakegirls.org
This is The Cupcake Girls Portland’s biggest client event of the year! We simply cannot care for our clients without our generous donors! Please consider being one of our July 100. To learn more about that, refer to our previous blog, Start Where You Are, Use What You Have, Do What You Can.
