Pampering with a Purpose Benefits Homeless

Mother’s Day Weekend and Pampering with a Purpose seemed to be the perfect fit as massage therapist, Versandra Kennebrew contemplated additional ways to raise funds necessary to open “Hunter House.”

Kennebrew plans to dedicate this facility, (which will teach residents a holistic approach to self-sufficiency) to her deceased grandmother, Nina Bell Hunter. After Kennebrew placed a call to the Everest Institute’s Lead Instructor, Mr. Jonathan Burt, fifteen graduating students were contacted and they volunteered to provide free massages for those who donated to the cause.

"Hunter House" will not only be a safe haven, it will be a learning experience for its residents, who will learn self-sufficiency. They will learn how to live a life of thriving and not just surviving.

Do yourself a favor...relax for just 15-minutes or take a one hour vacation this Saturday. 100% of the proceeds will provide housing for Detroit children.

1. Call 313-397-6802 to schedule your massage appointment for Saturday May 8 (anytime between 7am - 10pm).
15-minute, 30-minute and 60-minute massage slots are available with suggested donations of $15, $35 and $65 consecutively. Each participant will also receive a complimentary autographed copy of “Thank God for the Shelter.”

2. Purchase Pampering with a Purpose Tickets for only $25 if you can't make the May 8th event. Tickets are good for 1-year from the date of purchase.

3. Share this event with your church group, classmates, women's organization or other friends. They have 45 slots for massage and 200 Pampering with a Purpose Tickets.
