At Healwell, we are continually working to make inequities visible and to change them. One of the ways we do this is by inviting people who engage with our programs to thoughtfully consider what they can and want to invest in the current and future state of our world and community. When you make the decision to benefit from content created by Healwell, we invite you to consider it as an investment.  

When you choose which level you’d like to pay, let it be an exploration of how you want to participate in the future. What can you afford to pay today? What is it worth to you to ensure that others can have this same experience you’re about to have while continuing to be able to meet their basic financial commitments? Can you offer a little more and invest in our collective future? Or is today a day when your heart wants to do that, but your wallet can’t?

Every day is different and every person is different. Be thoughtful. Think beyond yourself and choose a level that’s congruent with your financial life and your deepest values. We’ll all get there.
