What is Clap4Health!℠ Fundraising?
It is a campaign that allows children to fundraise for their school/campus. Your youth will gather pledges for each clap they make during Clap4Health!℠ Events. For example, if their friend pledges $.50 cents for each clap, if your youth claps 200 times during a Clap4Health!℠ Event, they will receive $100 dollars as a donation from their friend. Your school/campus received 20% earned from Clap4Health! SM Event and will also receive The Hip Hop Healthy Heart Program for Children™ Curriculum (Appendix A) which can be implement in Classrooms, P.E./Wellness, After-School Programs, and/or Camps for FREE (from the amount raised by the school).

Because of this fundraising program, millions of students will learn the basics of: Clapping and the many benefits of being active, healthy and happy — a fun program that is simple to plan, exciting to have on campus, and beneficial to generate funds that fuel physical and nutritional education at school.

Why We Created This Program
The benefits of clapping are based on the Acupressure Theory, “Our body has 340 known pressure points, 28 of which are in our hands”. These acupressure points are activated by “Clapping” our hands and this action improves Your Health. Daily 10-20 minutes of clapping keeps you fit and active. Clapping stimulates blood circulation; this blood circulation removes all obstructions in the veins and arteries, including bad cholesterol.1
