Tipping can be weird and awkward, especially as a sole proprietor. That's why Amy has typically declined tips at Restorative Massage Therapy. The listed price is the only expected payment. (SERIOUSLY!)
However, Amy recognizes that some clients want the opportunity to share their appreciation monetarily. That's why RMT now has started TIPS FOR CHANGE. Any tips provided will be donated to a cause that is close to Amy's heart - improving Black Maternal & Infant Health. Black women are three to four times more likely to experience a pregnancy-related death than white women. (Source: National Partnership for Women & Families)
The organization that will be receiving these funds is Homeland Heart. Homeland Heart is based in Tennessee and provides services designed for women and infants of color, resources for families of color and training and support for women of color midwives and doulas.
