#OrlandoUnited

To my WELL Family,
Over the past week I have attended numerous fundraisers and memorials. Then on Sunday, June 19, 2016 I attended a vigil to honor the memory of 49 people who were taken suddenly and tragically from us. As a member of the Orlando and the LGBT Communities, I  have been trying to figure out the best way to honor these 49 human lives that were lost, while still trying to move ahead as a company to relaunch the WELL Community section of orlandoWELL.com.
The spirit of the WELL Community is meant to be one of unity, support, inspiration, and motivation to keep moving forward, but after such a horrific event that has devestated my communities, this spirit takes on a whole new meaning for me. As it stands, WELL Inc provides solutions for permanent weight loss, but it is this spirit of community that I’d now like to shine a light on.
I’ve spent the past week restructuring our website, and though the message of permanent weight loss remains, the WELL Community is now a place to connect, first and foremost. Yes, the WELL Community can help you build a permanent weight loss program from the ground up or it can enhance your current program, whether it’s specifically WELL designed or not. But our message is so much more than that.
It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are on your journey. The WELL Community provides you with a space to share your story, stay engaged with others, receive educated guidance, and find your motivation to keep moving forward.  Regardless of your program, regardless of your needs, I want the WELL Community to be YOUR CommunityAt the same time, I personally want to show support and offer assistance to those most affected by this tragedy, beyond the fundraisers and memorials. 
That is why from now until the end of the year, every person who purchases a premium membership for the WELL Community will have their first month’s payment donated to the OneOrlando Fund in an effort to help the victims and families of Pulse Nightclub. In addition to helping our community, your premium membership unlocks exclusive content, which includes:
  • Priority registration and free admission to upcoming events, both online and around your community.
  • Exclusive webinars and live streams made available only to premium members.
  • Full access to WELL Inc’s online self-evaluation process to help you START losing weight the right way.
  • All-in-one Personal WELLnalysis Dashboard where you can track your progress from START to SUCCEED.
  • Free and discounted access to additional WELL: programs.
  • WELL Partner, 3rd party affiliate recommendations and discounts.
START with the basics to lose weight, SIMPLIFY your approach, or enhance your existing program and SUCCEED with confidence, all while standing united against hate and showing your support. We have created a special page dedicated to those we lost, where you can join as a premium member, and/or donate directly to OneOrlando.org. Visit orlandoWELL.com/community-orlando for more information, and to upgrade your free membership to premium.  Thank you for your support. 
Below is a list of the 49 human lives we lost. Please, take a moment to read their names. It is important that we keep their memories alive and in our hearts.
