We just wrapped Pilates with a Purpose, a 5-day online Pilates challenge designed to do good and feel good – and I am on cloud 9! It was so much fun to see our community come together to do good. The impact was incredible.
Collectively, we raised $17,000 to donate directly to Girls on the Run International!
Isn’t that amazing? Our donations can send 100+ girls through a 10-week program designed to build confidence, support the next generation of girls, and show girls they can do anything they set their mind to.
Whether you donated, helped spread the word, used the workouts, or just followed along, THANK YOU for being a part of this! We couldn’t do it without you.
And I don’t know about you, but as we go into the holiday season, this inspires me to find ways to pay it forward on a regular basis. There is truly so much JOY to be found in giving.
If you want to join me in this, here are a few fun ideas:
- pay for the person behind you in line at the coffee shop
- leave snacks out for the delivery drivers who work so hard this time of year
- pick up the bill of someone dining at the same restaurant as you (an older couple did this for my husband and I when we were young and barely able to afford a date night – it was so generous and impactful that it brought me to tears!)
- deliver home-baked treats to a neighbor
There are so many fun ways to pay it forward – if you have a favorite random act of kindness, come tell me about it on my latest instagram post!
