Donations for Leasa and the Kids are Greatly Appreciated!

Donations with Heart HandsHey Everyone,

I’m writing this today to ask for some help from some of the most supportive people I know.

You have all done a wonderful job of supporting the studio and the studio’s fundraisers. Today, I am asking for help to raise funds and items on a more personal basis. I’m asking for help for my sister.

 Yesterday my sister lost her house and everything in it due to a fire. Her, my niece and nephews and their dogs are all alright. However, they lost everything except the clothes they had on their backs and their backpacks for school.


The studio will be hosting a drive to collect EVERYTHING from clothes, socks and blankets to food for the pantry. I’ve included a list of sizes in case you have some items from your closet or your kids closets you wouldn’t mind donating.

Gift cards to stores like Target or Fred Meyer would be helpful so she can purchase the kids new school uniforms and underwear. Books or games for the kids. Anything that might help them start putting the pieces back together would be much appreciated from the bottom of my heart and theirs.

Josh size 16-18,  shoe size 8.5

size 10 slim, shoe size 4

size 7, shoe size 11-12

size 8 or medium, shoe size 6.5.You can drop off your donations at the studio. At this time, she doesn’t have anywhere to store large items.I appreciate all your continued support for the studio and thank each and everyone of you for your efforts.
In good health,

Another fun tidbit for you, Inspired Movement Pilates Studio is having its first ever Relay for Life team this year on June 29th and 30th.

This is usually a fun night and I look forward to seeing you there this with me.

I am also excited to tell you about our upcoming online scheduling tool. The Studio has selected a software that will allow you to schedule, change and/or cancel your appointments online, along with so many other amazing tools! 

We hope to have the software uploaded, tested and launched by late March 2013.

That’s it for now. Have a fantastic week!
