Feel Good Friday - Therapy MapSamaritans fundraising day with our Feel Good Friday Therapy Map.
It's all about feeling good, and Samaritans is encouraging everyone to brighten their day a little, to have some fun and to help raise funds to allow them to continue their vital life-saving service. See full press release
Why Feel Good Friday?Every year, Samaritans' 18,750 volunteers support 5 million calls from people across the UK who are struggling to cope. They are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide hope and comfort. By supporting Feel Good Friday, you'll help Samaritans continue to provide their life-saving service for the millions of cries for help they receive each year.
Feel Good Friday was first organised by Samaritans in 2012 as a lighthearted way of raising these important funds. WebHealer supported the event in 2012, and we aim to raise even more money in 2013.
How WebHealer is helpingWebHealer run websites for thousands of therapists throughout the UK, and many of these will be supporting Feel Good Friday in 2013, by donating a proportion of their fees on February 1st to Samaritans. Follow us on webhealer.tumblr.com to see how the 2013 campaign is going.
How you can helpWhy not give yourself the gift of a reflexology or aromatherapy treatment (to name just two of the many therapies available), and choose one of our participating therapists for an appointment on February 1st 2013. Not only will you be looking after yourself, but part of your fee will go towards Samaritans, so you'll be looking after others too. Click to find a participating therapist
Therapists - Why should you take part?WebHealer is encouraging all our therapists to participate in this special event. Not only will you be helping Samaritans with their very important work, but you'll be able to raise your own profile in your local community.

If I'm busy on Friday 1st February, am I unable to support this event?
Some therapists choose to support Feel Good Friday throughout the week ending Friday 1st. If not, you could always contact them and say you can't make Friday but would another day still qualify.
Other Charitable ActivitiesWebHealer are proud to be supporting Samaritans in 2013, and it is our hope that this event will go from strength to strength. We are also looking at extending the concept to support other charities.
Over the years, an increasing element of our business goals has been to make a contribution to society. For example, between December 2008 and January 2010 our charity VAT appeal raised over £7,500 for Macmillan Cancer Care, BBC Children in Need and Merlin Disaster Relief.
