NADA Giving Day
We are excited to share with you that this year on July 20th we will launch the first annual NADA Giving Day. The NADA protocol is offered in many diverse places and spaces across North America and our vision is for NADA to be accessible to all.
What is NADA Giving Day?
NADA Giving Day is a day for NADA to shine and expand and diversify its funding in order to meet the current needs of our growing community. This means funding for a variety of new projects, but it’s also about increasing our capacity and potential to serve the NADA membership to create zones of peace within our neighborhoods, families, schools, centers, and programs.
Our goal is to raise 120 gifts on July 20, 2019.
Help us spread the word!
NADA Giving Day is also an opportunity for us as a community to share what NADA means to us, to our clients, families, and communities. Mark your calendars for July 20th and look out for more ways to share about NADA Giving Day in your email and via our social media channels (Instagram @spiritofnada & Facebook @acudetox National Acupuncture Detoxification Association).
We invite you to consider making a gift on NADA Giving Day to help NADA to continue to grow.
“Acupuncture is a living thing. It moves lightly and quickly. It crosses lines of gender, race and culture. It connects to someone’s inner spirit, and it’s a tremendous privilege.” –Michael Smith

Excerpt from the essay Spirituality and the Serenity Prayer by Michael O. Smith
At the end of the session, they ask, “What’s in the needle? There must be something in the needle.”
Some people get very intense about this because they are struck by the notion that “if there is nothing good in the needle, then there must be something good in me.” That’s the biggest lesson in the clinic—the biggest lesson in anybody’s life. And because acupuncture can take the most panicked person and show them a peaceful side of themselves in about 30 seconds, you are able to reveal this important human and spiritual lesson right away.
“There is nothing in that needle, so there must be something good in me—something good, something peaceful, something quiet, something forgiving, something optimistic.
