Posener’s MMA Vancouver New Green Charity Project and More
I am happy to announce our next charitable project initiative. We are running a grocery bag promotion where 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Brooksdale Environmental Center. The Center is involved in many aspects of environmental stewardship, education and conservation. They are a local organization with far reaching objectives. They will help save the local Salmon populations and educate on environmental conservation and care of creation and more. The minimum donation for a bag will be $5 and 100% of the proceeds will go to this excellent organization. www.Arocha.ca
In the past we have supported Clean Water Charities, World Vision, The RJ Canuel Police Fund, Kick Drugs out of Canada and more. In this climate of change and increased consciousness on our environment and related issues, I feel this charitable promotion can create a win, win, win situation. I have described, simply, the main objectives: Save the Salmon, Environmental Stewardship and Inspiring Hope.
With the wealth of information and concern on our environment, health and diet, I am hoping to do something useful on a few different levels. Simply increasing consciousness of current issues will benefit, the individual, the environment and our society.
Personally, I have taken an interest in growing natural food and being concerned with the relationship of diet and health. Considering my wear and tear injuries, being concerned with a healthy diet has helped and increased perspective. There is a personal benefit of eating more fruits and vegetables; it does make you feel good.
Besides some basic diet concepts listed on our personal training website of a few years ago,
, I have evolved my personal practice and kept up with education and the constant pursuit of knowledge. Personally I don’t buy beef, chicken, or pork from the supermarket largely because I don’t agree with the commercialization of those industries, the effects of these industries on the environment or the humanitarian concerns for meat production. I think there is ample evidence there are health benefits of consuming less meat, especially this stressed out type, and eating more whole natural foods.
Next year I will expand on my own garden considerably. I do enjoy the Zen aspect of it, and more, and it has improved my awareness; I am looking to continue on that. This is a condensed summary of the basics, which can be expanded later. So, as I join the Arnold campaign and others of eating less meat and being concerned with the environment, there is a hopeful opportunity to start a ripple effect of benefit. Eating natural whole foods that are produced responsibly and humanely will help a lot. Eating less meat, especially the commercially produced kind where the animals are stressed, raised in confined pens without the freedom of movement, and being aware will help; not to mention the environmental effect of some of these industries. Having the Posener’s Pankration/ MMA Vancouver / Arocha grocery bags will also be a good reminder. The warrior way considers health multidimensional and to strive to maximize our potential and others.
In this climate of change, this promotion will help and I hope you buy some bags, tell your friends about health and our groups, inspire hope and think of benefits for yourself and others.
