Host a Virtual Workout Birthday Party!

This morning I Zoomed into a workout class with several friends I went to high school with who now live in cities across the country.

We spent an hour stretching, jumping, and getting in shape together virtually. This party was in honor of my friend Emily’s birthday. She organized invites to the class and asked that participants make a donation to Bienvenidos Food Bank. The teacher, Jen, didn’t charge for her time—she has held several donation-only classes this year, raising hundreds of dollars (more now, I’m sure) to feed the hungry.

How creative, generous, and healthy is all that? Maybe a virtual workout birthday party is in your future—even after it’s safe for everyone to return to the gym.
