To be fair no one has actually asked me this question (you're all far too polite for that) but I know some of you are thinking it.
You are right, I am not a charity and it's not charity that I am looking for. But Happy Healthy Hoops does do a lot to support charity.
Over the last 3 years we have contributed to
- Breast Cancer Research
- The Parkinson's Association
- Save the Children, Retina Australia
- Canine Partners
- Epilepsy Australia
- Conquer Cystic Fibrosis
More importantly though Happy Healthy Hoops contributes to the Community.
I've watched so many people blossom in my classes. There are so many reasons people start hooping, they might be recovering from an injury, suffering from depression, stress or even just wanting to make some friends, have fun and get fit.
Hooping gives them a space to recover, to get their confidence back, to play and experience joy in the same way they did as a child. That laughter and joyfulness helps them to escape the pressures of every day life. And it's difficult not to make friends when you are laughing out loud.
I know I am not curing cancer but I think I am doing something great. I know I am. I can't quantify it for you, in fact it is hard to put into words but when you see the smiles I see in class you just can't deny it this is something worth doing, worth contributing too.

I don't hoop so how can I support you?
We all know that person who has it all. When it comes to birthdays and christmas we are tearing our hair out trying to think what to get them. Well I bet that person doesn't have a Travel Hoop. So get them one, get your mum one or your sister or you girlfriend. Take it to your next picnic, even if you don't hoop I guarantee you'll get hours or entertainment.
