Greetings World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Supporters!
SAVE YOUR WTCQD 2006 PHOTOS IN THEIR ORIGINAL "LARGE" FORMATS [often they get reduced in size, and the originals are lost forever, and the smaller sizes are great for web work, but not useable for other media, print, film, etc.]
We have been once again amazed at the extraordinary World Tai Chi & Qigong Day events held worldwide. The people, the locations, the movements and forms all creating a beautiful mosaic of humanity that is moving.
We are so grateful and proud of each and every country, state and city helping to promote global health & healing by holding WTCQD events, but feel the need to acknowledge "Italy" in particular for their national embrace of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, and their ongoing work to reach out to other European tai chi & qigong groups to keep this global health & healing movement growing.
We know many of you are still yet to send your WTCQD 2006 Photographs in, please do. Everyone else, please take a few minutes to browse thru the exquisite and inspiring photos pouring in from around the world from World Tai Chi & Qigong Day 2006. NOTE, some have skipped past the "2006" photos, and scrolled down to the 2005 photos. So, when you click on the photos at www.worldtaichiday.org, be sure and "stop" and look at the "2006 Photos" selection, and click on that.
Again, THANK YOU ALL for making this magical global event occur each year.
We will all look back one day and realize that we did something truly meaningful and profound, and affected the world in a healing way that we can all be very proud of.
Bill & Angela Douglas, World Tai Chi & Qigong Day
PLEASE . . . read on . . . share this email widely with contacts worldwide.
SEND US YOUR "2006 WTCQD" PHOTOS & COMMENTS !!
Although we've had an avalanche of fascinating and beautiful photos of WTCQD 2006 events coming in . . . we know there are many more events who have yet to send in their photos. PLEASE DO. We're caught up for now, uploading the photos sent in to date, and are ready to post more.
IMPORTANT: email your photos in the original LARGE formats, to email@example.com as jpeg attachments. Again DO NOT reduce the size of your photos, just email them to us in their original LARGE format to:
NOTE: you cannot enlarge a photo, once it has been reduced in size. It will be blurry. That is why we encourage you to save your WTCQD 2006 photos NOW in a large format.
Please send us your BEST half dozen or so photos for posting on www.worldtaichiday.org.
BE SURE TO INCLUDE CITY, STATE, COUNTRY . . . and any brief comments on what it meant to your local group to do Tai Chi & Qigong, "to breathe" with the rest of the world on this special day.
WHAT TO DO NOW THAT WTCQD 2006 IS OVER (?)
Now that WTCQD 2006 is over, it is time to grow for 2007. Please, begin reaching out to sister Tai Chi & Qigong groups, schools, and organizations nationally in your country, and also internationally across the world. Encourage them to view the growing photos of events from around the world from 2006 events, and encourage them to use the Organizing Kits, and Media Kits, and Medical Research to begin working on World Tai Chi & Qigong Day events for their areas, in 2007.

REACH OUT TO LOCAL MEDIA WITH YOUR PHOTOS
You may interest local media in doing a post event article on your Tai Chi & Qigong group's participation in World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, and your health & healing local work ongoing throughout the year.
IT IS IMPORTANT, that you include www.worldtaichiday.org in your media work. Please give them your local website, etc. for local contact, but ALSO include www.worldtaichiday.org for info on the global event and other free resources.

"A MESSAGE" TO PASS ON TO "YOUR" TAI CHI & QIGONG GROUP/ASSOCIATION CONTACTS WORLDWIDE !!!
WHY SHOULD TAI CHI & QIGONG GROUPS, SCHOOLS, AND REGIONAL/NATIONAL ASSOCIATIONS EMBRACE "WORLD TAI CHI & QIGONG DAY" AND ENCOURAGE THEIR MEMBERS TO GET INVOLVED?
BECAUSE IT WILL INCREASE WORLD HEALTH & HEALING
Because it will enable your local group/school to get local media to inform readers/viewers of Tai Chi & Qigong Medical Research
Because it will enable local media to inform readers/viewers on how to find your local classes
Because it will bring Tai Chi & Qigong groups/associations together for "cooperation" rather than only for "competitions"
Because, by bringing the global Tai Chi & Qigong family together again and again, year after year, we all grow in our ability to provide healing solutions to our local communities
Because World Tai Chi & Qigong Day provides easy to use FREE Organizing Kits, and Media Kits, for schools/associations worldwide to use to hold successful local media events
Because World Tai Chi & Qigong Day's www.worldtaichiday.org provides FREE LISTING for all schools of all styles
Because www.worldtaichiday.org provides a plethora of free educational resources that will help your local students get even more from your classes
Because of the TOP TEN TAI CHI SITES [of google.com's over 20 million sites on Tai Chi] www.worldtaichiday.org is one of the few that actively promotes your school & classes thru advertising, international media work, etc. etc.
BECAUSE THE WORLD IS HUNGRY FOR A HEALING VISION OF GLOBAL COOPERATION ACROSS RACIAL, ETHNIC, AND GEOPOLITICAL BORDERS . . . a healing vision World Tai Chi & Qigong Day provides millions worldwide year after year, after year . . .
