Flip2BFit fitness board game creator, Heather Parisi kicks off fundraising campaign for Fitness for Africa
It is possible for one person to make a difference! Get fit, have fun and help spread healthy living around the globe with Flip2BFit’s Fitness for Africa campaign.
Flip2BFit creator, Heather Parisi, armed with her one-of-a-kind fitness boardgame is launching a crowdfunding campaign (donations can be made to: http://igg.me/at/FitnessForAfrica-PearlofHope) to bring permanent schools and facilities to children grades K1 through K3 in Uganda, Africa while spreading education about fitness and nutrition. Profits from every sale of Flip2BFit fitness board game as well as donations made through an online campaign will go towards helping Fitness for Africa—a New York based non-profit that believes in battling obesity in the states and malnutrition in Africa—bring health, nutrition, education and a higher quality of life to the people of Uganda and their children.
After overcoming serious injury and attributing her recovery to physical activity and healthy lifestyle, Founder, Heather Parisi knew she had to share the joy of health and fitness with others. Determined to teach people everywhere that an active and healthy lifestyle is possible no matter age, income or geographic location, Parisi set out to educate people about what health options they have and what the decisions are to make…Flip2BFit was born. With a deep belief that today’s obesity epidemic is linked with malnutrition around the globe, Flip2BFit along with Fitness For Africa has set their scopes on bridging and targeting these problems through fun, creative and easy solutions that anyone can enjoy and participate in.
Getting its start in a part of the world that desperately needs it, Flip2BFit is already a huge hit among Ugandan school children. Flip2BFit has delivered a fun and exciting way to encourage healthy lifestyles at many of the schools there. In fact, since introducing the game, Ugandan school children have demonstrated improved grades, a growth in self-esteem, better sleep, stronger muscles, greater focus and more. Even the Ugandan adults that have participated report a positive impact having experienced less aches and pains and better sleep. Now Parisi, through her Not for Profit Fitness for Africa is seeking funding to help keep her school up and running and to move out of the temporary bamboo structure into permanent structures so that the school is recognized by the Ugandan Ministry of Education.
Donations and Flip2BFit proceeds will not only change lives but transform an entire community. With a little help from YOU, Parisi’s Ugandan school, Pearl of Hope, can become a permanent place for learning and growing. Everyone who donates or purchases Flip2BFit during the campaign will not only contribute to helping acquire land titles and permission to stay, but to education in healthy eating, physical activity, academics, understanding nutrition and eating options, living with family bonds, knowing and understanding finances, understanding healthy gardening and much much more. For a community ravaged by wars, the horrific corruption of Idi Amin and Joseph Kony, and over 60,000 kidnapped children forced to be soldiers, something as simple as a solid and fixed building of education, health and bonding is an important element in healing and moving towards a brighter future.
There are so many ways to help! Just $15 helps make 100 bricks for future improvement and construction of Pearl of Hope School. A donation of $50 ensures a child is fed all 3 terms of the school year and receives balanced meals every day and a $250 donation funds the professional at Pearl of Hope who impart the knowledge needed to make healthy lifestyle choices and change. With every $50 donation, givers will receive an “A Healthy Life Starts Here” t-shirt and their name on the website; $250 donations receive a copy of the innovative fitness game, BAKARI and their name commemorated on a Pearl of Hope Founder plaque to be mounted at the site. You CAN make a difference in the lives of others. Get to IndieGoGo and show you care!
