In the pursuit of always giving back to society we live in, Orange County Shorinji Kempo Branch launched a Wellness program on September 8, 2017! Inspired by true events of a mother and daughter (10 yrs old) living in a van for 4 years. Orange County branch decided to make Wellness Packages which contain soap, toothbrushes, hand sanitizer, granola bars, shaving razor, manicure kit and face wash towels to give to people in need. 15 Shorinji Kempo families were handed Wellness packages so they in turn go seek out people that could utilize the items to better maintain their health and wellbeing. To create a society who always thinks about others is at the essence of Shorinji Kempo. “Half for one’s own happiness, and half for the happiness of others.” Gassho!
