Hi Angela-
Again, thanks so much for all your hard work! 

The students in our classes loved their
WTCQD t-shirts and didn't realize how
beautiful they were until they received
them.  So, I had an
other 14 students
who requested them and just sent
in the order. 
Take care and thanks so much again.

HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED IN A
WORLD TAI CHI & QIGONG DAY EVENT?



 

To find an already organized event, click on the "Find Local Events" link in the menu on the left at www.worldtaichiday.org and search your zip code.  There may be pages and pages of listings, and you'll need to contact many until you find one holding an event, as not all groups hold events every single year.

 

Here are ways to get started organizing an event,
if you decide to organize one yourself:
 
1) Join Our Free Email Mailing List for our World Tai Chi & Qigong Ezine Newsletter to stay updated on global developments (it is good to encourage your group to do so as well, as seeing the constant postings of govt. officials around the world Proclaiming WTCQD 2015 for their areas, videos/photos of past events worldwide, etc.)

 

2) List your Event and School in the Events Directory and Schools Directory at www.WorldTaiChiDay.org.

 

3) Browse the menu on the left of the homepage at www.WorldTaiChiDay.org to take advantage of all our FREE resources to help you expand Tai Chi & Qigong in your area and the world by your participation in World Tai Chi & Qigong Day.

 

There you will find links to:
* Media Kits
* Organizing Kits
* Medical Research on Tai Chi & Qigong (to share with media
if you gain coverage of your event)
* Press Releases you can use in 19 languages
* Banner/Poster/Flyer artwork to publicize your WTCQD event
* How to get Official Proclamations for WTCQD in your area from govt. officials
and more ... you can spend hours viewing the free resources, and can share them with your local email list, and link to them on your website.  We create these resources as free public services.

 

We believe that Tai Chi and Qigong, as they change individuals, are changing our world for the better.

 

Our event's motto is "One World ... One Breath."

 

Bill Douglas, Founder of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day
P.S. if you would like to support our work, you can by of course organizing events,
