I need YOUR SUPPORT to complete required training to become a Certified Forest Therapy Guide!

As many of you know, I was accepted into a training program to become a certified Forest Therapy Guide. This training begins in September with a week long intensive experience in NW Ohio, followed by six months of weekly mentoring calls and practical experience. By next spring I will complete my certification and will begin offering Forest Therapy sessions as a coaching business. (You can read more about this in the Nature Therapy tab on this website…)

Normally, our family figures out ways to personally pay for whatever projects we decide to take on. In this case, I have a one-time opportunity to complete training in my own state, rather than paying significantly higher transportation costs for a program in Northern California (or overseas!) at a later date. Unfortunately, this means we can’t just save money for a year or two to be able to cover the costs with cash up front. Because of hubby’s unemployment last year plus son’s expenses to finish university, I have taken out a loan to cover the costs of training. I would LOVE to pay off this loan before the end of this year!

Thank You for your support!

I have some really awesome perks for donors. Check out the list HERE (or directly on the fundraising campaign page). I know many of us are very tight financially right now. THAT’S OKAY! I also need folks to share my campaign with their own friends who might be interested in helping me. Please consider how you might best support me.

The direct link to my Go-Fund-Me campaign is https://www.gofundme.com/ForestTherapyJill  From that page you can read my story and find links to my website and blog. You can make donations there and see the list of unique perks I am offering for donors. To share with friends, you can email them this direct link or you can click the fb button on my campaign page to share via Facebook.

Thanks in advance for whatever help you can give me!
