Mayway Gives Winners are Announced!Seven TCM non-profit causes were qualified from your nominations. Thousands of votes were received. Two causes were neck and neck to the very end of the voting period...and now we're happy to share the results with you!
First Place Winner: Acupuncture Relief Project
We are pleased to announce that the Acupuncture Relief Project has received the highest number of votes. Mayway will be donating $2,500 to help them continue their efforts toward providing healthcare in rural and under-served areas of Nepal. Here's a little about their cause:
Since 2008, the Acupuncture Relief Project has provided over 150,000 primary care visits to patients living in rural villages outside of Kathmandu Nepal. Our mission is to provide free medical support to those affected by poverty, conflict or disaster while offering an educationally meaningful experience to influence the professional development and personal growth of compassionate medical practitioners. Our volunteer practitioners work 6 days per week and they tackle some of the most difficult medical cases found in any modern hospital. Tuberculosis, diabetes, stroke, domestic violence, alcohol abuse, and seizures are common to our treatment rooms. Many times the “best care available” is the “only care available”... and that would be us. Visit their website for more information.
Second Place Winner: Charlotte Maxwell Clinic
We are pleased to announce that the Charlotte Maxwell Clinic has received the second highest number of votes. Mayway will be donating $1,000 to help them continue their efforts toward providing free alternative medical treatments to low-income women with cancer. Here's a little about their cause:
For more than two decades, The Charlotte Maxwell Clinic (CMC) has been providing complementary integrative medicine and practical, emotional, and financial support for thousands of underserved women with cancer in the San Francisco Bay Area. These direct services (provided free of charge) include acupuncture, Chinese and western herbs, therapeutic massage, mind-body medicine for stress reduction, exercise classes, lymphedema workshops and nutritional support and help to ease the burden of cancer and the side effects of conventional cancer treatments.

Third Place Winner: ACTCM's Community Ear Acupuncture Project
We are pleased to announce that the ACTCM Community Ear Acupuncture Project has received the third highest number of votes. Mayway will be donating $500 to help them continue their efforts toward providing holistic medicine in a donation-based community clinic setting. Here's a little about their cause:
Our Acupuncture Ear Project started in 1994 as a donation-based community clinic with the mission to provide quality holistic medicine in a safe and welcoming environment to members of the public who may not otherwise be able to afford it. Patients are seen on a drop-in, first come, first served basis. Treatment sessions typically last between 20-40 minutes, and are performed in a group setting while patients relax in a chair. Up to four interns treat an average of 30-50 patients each day. The clinic draws a diverse group of patients of varying ages, ethnicities and backgrounds from all over the San Francisco Bay Area. Visit their website for more information.
