Get a the homeless??

My friend Carl Brown has a unique way of working toward his hourly credits as a certified massage therapist. He is asking for all payment checks for his very wonderful massages to be made out directly to Friendship Shelter, which helps temporarily homeless adults get back on their feet. Carl comes to your home with his folding massage table, is respectful and earnest, and values client feedback. If you've been hesitating to make time for the important self-care of a massage, think of this as a way to help others at the same time you take care of your body.

Here's the lowdown:
Carl has completed his training in Massage Therapy. His training was taken at the International Professional School of Bodywork in San Diego, one of the top 5 Bodywork/ Massage schools in the United States ( All of the massage sessions are in support of the Friendship Shelter in Laguna Beach. These are professional sessions conducted at the individuals residence, there is a minimum recommended donation that is suggested for the Friendship Shelter, if you have any interest scheduling a session email Carl at Information about the Friendship Shelter can be found at their web site shown below.
Sessions can either be 1 hour or 90 minutes. Suggested minimum donations for the one-hour session are $40 to $60 and $60 to $80 for the 90-minute sessions. Checks are to be made out to the Friendship Shelter directly and given to Carl for delivery to the Friendship Shelter. You will receive a receipt from the Shelter for your donation and it will be 100% deductible.

Carl also does free yoga classes at Moulton Meadows Park twice a week -- here's the schedule:
