(Ambrosio’s note: I wanted to share this press release with you because when any company raises this much money for a good cause, it’s worth celebrating. On October 12, Massage Envy raised more than $493,000 by donating $10 from every massage and facial and 10% of all Murad and Wyndmere product sales at all 700 of their clinics that day. That’s a lot of massages, facials and products! Congratulations to the entire Massage Envy family!)
Massage Envy recently announced that it raised more than $493,000 during its inaugural Healing Hands for Arthritis event. The one-day national event took place at all 700 Massage Envy clinics on World Arthritis Day, October 12th. During the day, $10 from every massage and facial was donated to the National Arthritis Foundation to benefit the organization’s mission to prevent, control and cure arthritis.
“Communities all across America participated in our Healing Hands for Arthritis event. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the results,” said Dave Crisalli, President & CEO of Massage Envy. “We thank our wonderful members and guests along with our terrific franchisees, therapists and clinic staff who helped make this event a huge success. We are proud to be partners with the Arthritis Foundation and look forward to continuing to support such a worthwhile organization and its local offices across the country.”
During Healing Hands for Arthritis, Murad®, Massage Envy Spa’s exclusive skin care partner, as well as retail partner Wyndmere, also donated 10 percent of their product sales at Massage Envy Spa locations to the Arthritis Foundation.
“With the help of Massage Envy, we were able to raise nearly half a million dollars during Healing Hands for Arthritis to help fight a chronic and truly devastating disease that affects 50 million adults and 300,000 children,” said Rick Bell, managing director of the Arthritis Foundation. “We are so grateful that tens of thousands of people took action on World Arthritis Day by getting a massage or facial because Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the nation. This support helps us continue to fund life-changing research and programs to improve the lives of those living with the pain of arthritis.”
