Why do you feel you would be an asset to the Liddle Kidz Foundation volunteer team?
I have done quite a bit of traveling out side of the United States. I am very easy to get along with and work well with different personalities. I am very eager to travel to the Philippines and bring healthy touch to individuals and local communities.
Why would you like to participate in this outreach event?
I love to work with babies and I love to travel! It would be amazing to travel to the Philippines as a volunteer to work with the local agencies and see the country from that perspective. I would also love to work with Tina Allen, and her hand selected group of volunteers. I think it would be a wonderful cultural and educational experience that would also enhance my tools as an infant massage teacher and pediatric massage therapist going forward.
There are millions of infants and children worldwide who are struggling to live to their fullest potential. Would you like an opportunity to bring nurturing touch and pediatric massage to orphaned and displaced children around the globe?
