2018 Annual Giving Appeal launched

With your support, our 2018 Annual Giving Appeal will help us implement the final component of our Mindful Moves program: ‘Dance Moves’. ‘Dance Moves’ will explore different themes and dance styles, such as jazz and National dances. Classes will be tailored for both chair-bound and mobile residents and home care consumers, allowing every person to express themselves freely and not be restricted to specific movement and breath patterns. We believe this dance program benefits the body and mind, promotes emotional well-being, inner peace, contentment and will combat isolation. Dance Moves also promises to be inclusive as there are no targets and no failures: everyone can participate.

To kick-start our ‘Dance Moves program, we need to raise $20,000 to seed-fund a 12-month trial. This will allow us to deliver the ‘Dance Moves’ program for one day per week and also hold a fun, old fashioned dance. (Get your dancing shoes and outfits ready!). After the trial concludes, we will evaluate the program’s benefits to our residents and home care consumers. If positive change is being enjoyed, we anticipate Dance Moves will become part of our overall, ongoing well-being program.

Will you please give generously to help MACS’ residents and home care consumers ‘keep the twinkle in their wrinkle’? You can make a tax deductible donation to this year’s Annual Giving Appeal by clicking here to be redirected to SSL encrypted Secure Pay. Gifts over $2 are tax deductible.
