Massage Without Borders

A non profit organization created for MT's Helping MT's.

Answering the call of an Angel after hurricane Sandy, a group of MT's led by Massage Pro C.E. owner Gloria Coppola came together to help our colleagues who lost their equipment in the storm.

Our mission is to help our colleagues during  times of disaster for their immediate and temporary needs. Ex. Massage tables, food gift cards. 

Our future plan is to also offer Free education for conscious touch to survivors and disaster relief massage for those that choose to give massage during these times to emergency crews.

Join us! Volunteer or contribute for the greatest cause ~ YOU!

Massage Tables donated to MT's

Thanks to Oakworks, Custom Craftworks, American 3B, EarthLite and One Concept and Master Massage , Massage Magazine and Massage Pro C.E., we have been able to help some colleagues in New York and New Jersey receive massage tables or gift baskets/cards after their lost theirs in Hurricane Sandy! 

Massage Pro C.E.'s owner answered a call from an Angel. A former student contacted her to help another former student who lost her home and practice. With one phone call Gloria was able to not only get a table for this MT, but for many more!

Our E auction raised over $4,000 to help our mission.

Funds are being created for our Adopt an MT in times of disaster and need and

our Adopt a Student program. We also have other plans for the future and will keep you posted.

The online concert that Ryan Hoyme aka The Massage Nerd received the highest views ever for one of his live stream events. It was such a success he has asked Massage Without Borders to do another one.

So coming in June We will have an Educators online event.

Educators who contribute to our E Education Auction for June, will have the opportunity to be live too, if available to discuss their training or DVD they donate. (First come, first serve). We have many already signing up.

May 20-25th National School/Business FUndRaising Event

This event is to raise awareness in the community and in schools while helping raise funds to help a gifted and passionate student who may have to drop out of school due to financial distress.

If you would like to participate, there is a Grand Prize and 2nd prize for the one who brings in the most donations.

I'm a newly minted LMT, trying to build my business, one client at a time.  I'm unable to contribute money at this time, but will forward the links to my school, and urge the corporation to become a sponsor.
