Announcing a new Meetup for The Krav Maga Self-Defense Group!
What: Healthy Living, Inc. Open House
When: October 8,[masked]:00 PM
Jellef Boys and Girls Club in Georgetown off WI
3265 S St NW
Washington, DC 20007
This isn't a Krav Maga event, but I think this is an important event and I want to help this group out by promoting it. Healthy Living, Inc. (www.healthylivinginc.org) is an organization run by a good friend of mine. She teaches cooking classes and gives wellness workshops, but more importantly, she volunteers a lot of her time and resources to the DC Boys & Girls Clubs and the Calvary Women's Services (a center for homeless women in DC).
There are many aspects of her organization and this open house is a way to bring those threads together in order to build a larger community around the concept of empowerment through awareness of the choices we have in the food we prepare and eat. As Juliette says of the program at the homeless shelter, "I firmly believe that these women can empower themselves to be more in control of their health. I help the women take baby steps towards taking a more active role in their well being and perceive themselves as in control of their destiny instead of victims."
Even if you can't attend the Open House, I encourage you to join the meetup group (DC Area Macrobiotics), go to a cooking class, or check out their website and make a donation of even just $10 or $20 to help keep those programs going.
