Omaha School of Massage and Healthcare of Herzing University raises additional $3,150 with “Massages for Haiti” fundraiser

June 21, 2010

On Feburary 7, 2010 the Omaha School of Massage and Healthcare of Herzing University (OSMHC) performed massages on over sixty Omaha residents to benefit Haiti relief. All proceeds from the “Massages for Haiti” fundraiser will be matched by Herzing University to total $3,150 raised by this event, adding to the $10,000 already donated by the University.

“The idea came to me when our Herzing University home office informed me that they donated $10,000 to the American Red Cross to help in the relief efforts in Haiti,” said Campus President Steve Carper. “They also stated they would match the funds raised by each individual campus, so we at OSMHC definitely wanted to take advantage of that generous offer.” Omaha community members enjoyed a half‐hour, hour, or one‐and‐a‐half hour Swedish massage at the school’s award‐wining, student‐run massage clinic in support of this event. Not only did clients experience stress relief from soothing massages, they also received the peace of mind that comes with helping people in need. The massage rates were $20, $35, and $50, depending on the time length.
