The pandemic has brought the wealth gap in America into stark relief—and it’s widened it considerably: families with an income of $100,000 or less now face financial difficulties that were previously the province of those with much lower incomes.
And the outsized impact of Covid-19 on Brown and Black bodies, coupled with the continued violence against those bodies, has made historic economic inequality something that can no longer be ignored or swept under the rug if we are to answer the call to “stitch a new garment, one that fits all of humanity and nature.”
I recognize that historic economic inequality exists and is especially oppressive for the marginalized. From the founding of Simply: Health Coaching, an important part of the mission has been to make health coaching affordable for Every Body.
Thanks to a generous grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation’s Small Business Restart program, I was able to offer scholarships for the October 2020 cohort of the EAT™, and I would like to be able to continue subsidizing under-resourced women.
Participants with financial privilege are asked to pay $1,200 for the program; those with low incomes are invited to apply for a scholarship that is tailored to their individual needs.
Your gift makes these scholarships possible and can be given in honor or memory of someone you love.
Please note that Simply: Health Coaching is NOT a nonprofit; no tax benefits accrue.
