Saturday, April 25th, 2015
Dear World Tai Chi & Qigong Day supporters,
If you ordered Official T-Shirts on or before Jan. 17th, 2015, your order is in the mail. We'll be working daily until all orders ship, but please be patient, we'll get them to you in plenty of time for WTCQD. A shout out to Carlton Hill in INDIA, Sandra in Australia, Sue in the United Kingdom, and Tom in Canada -- YOUR OFFICIAL T-SHIRTS are on their way! We have shipped out all international orders. THANKS for your support!
This is a powerhouse newsletter you'll want to SAVE and read in its entirety. We have a ton of mind-blowing and helpful information in this for both you and our planet. Tai Chi and Qigong may be just the tip of the profound wisdom traditional Chinese practices offer the world.
Just in! The traditional Chinese diet focusing on veggies and grain, with small amounts of meat, may be a model for the world.
A United States Advisory Panel that helps design school diet education released a report today that encourages eating less meat, both for health, and for global environmental sustainability. See article in this newsletter for details on this and the traditional Chinese diet. Over centuries the Chinese have developed a highly sophisticated "food as medicine" way of eating.
Before we get to the exciting UPDATED Newsletter Archive news (which includes healthy tasty meatless recipes), and to our global valentine to the world ... We must begin with a HUGE THANKYOU to the Kansas City area volunteers who came to help us inspect and fold the Official WTCQD T-Shirts. Without your help each year our work would not be possible.
IMPORTANT NOTE: To those who have ordered Official WTCQD T-Shirts, WE HAVE BEGUN SHIPPING ... but, we are doing them in the order we received them, so yours might still take a while. Anyone who ordered ON or BEFORE January 17th's order is in the mail.
Don't worry, everyone will get them in plenty of time for WTCQD. We've done this successfully for over 10 years, we WILL get yours to you in plenty of time for WTCQD. A shout out to Carlton Hill in INDIA, your t-shirts are on their way :-)
You can enter a WTCQD Official T-Shirt PHOTO CONTEST! We will be looking at entries involving 2 photos of your WTCQD event that include the "Official WTCQD T-Shirt" being worn in the photo. One photo should include an image of the Official T-Shirt in a close up focusing on that person and the t-shirt, and the 2nd photo should be a larger group WTCQD mass event type photo. We'll likely also create a montage of the two.
3 Prize Packages will be awarded, each of a value of $150 ... or more.
HOW TO ENTER the 2015 WTCQD Photo Contest:
After your 2015 WTCQD event, send us
1) one photo of a close up of someone doing Tai Chi or Qigong at your 2015 WTCQD event wearing the Official WTCQD T-Shirt. We want to see facial features that includes the close up Official T-Shirt they are wearing.
2) Then, just one more photo of a mass crowd doing Tai Chi or Qigong during your local WTCQD event.
(PLEASE JUST SEND THE 2 PHOTOS. TAKE YOUR TIME AND PICK ONLY YOUR BEST 2 SHOTS AS DESCRIBED ABOVE. If we get a dozen photos from groups, we end up looking thru thousands of photos, and its too much for us to deal with.)
