Until a couple weeks ago, I’d never had a massage (unless you count my husband’s pseudo, five-minute back rubs – no offense, honey). So I was super excited when I heard that Comfort Zone, a Duluth-based massage therapy company, was donating massages to WestmorelandFlint.
My day got even better when I learned that, after our massages, we were getting free pizza from Pizza Luce. If I didn’t know better I would’ve thought it was my birthday or something.
The massage was heavenly and the pizza delicious. But amid our relaxing and munching, we also raised money for an important community initiative: United Way of Greater Duluth’s Community Fundraising Campaign.
What’s really neat about the United Way is that it benefits the community as a whole – not just one organization, issue or group of people. In fact, the organization donates to more than 50 local nonprofit health and human service programs in the Duluth area.Thanks to the donations from Pizza Luce and Comfort Zone, our Duluth office raised nearly $200 for the United Way in one day.
Relieved backs, stuffed tummies and full hearts. Now that’s what I call a successful Friday.
