I am filled with gratitude for my many blessings every day but I feel especially fortunate during the holiday season. I will spend the holidays surrounded by loved ones, with a roof over my head and yummy food. I realize that this is not true for many.

It’s heartbreaking to know that there are people struggling but I take some comfort in the outreach I see from the Release community. I have witnessed members of our community doing selfless deeds and performing random acts of kindness for people in need. Their huge hearts and deep passion for humanity and our world are awe inspiring.

I’d like to utilize this forum for our community to share stories about people in their lives who go above and beyond for others. There are so many unsung heroes in our midst so let’s give them a shout out.

If you want to contribute a story, share it on our Facebook page, these stories will serve as nominations for the Holiday Blessings Award. The winner will receive a 12 month Transformation Membership to Release, which includes all access to yoga, fitness and meditation classes, unlimited access to Bliss and one $95 spa treatment per month.

If you share your story, you will also be entered into a raffle for two Bliss Passes. One for you, and one for the hero you nominate!

We will announce the winner of the award and Bliss pass raffle on Facebook live on December 30th at noon.

I look forward to hearing your stories!

Wishing you all a holiday season and 2018 filled with peace, love and joy <3

With gratitude,
