With my connection to rheumatoid arthritis, the Arthritis National Research Foundation was the perfect fit.
Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
The Arthritis National Research Foundation (ANRF) was chosen to benefit from a portion of the proceeds at Om is Life’s premiere trunk show presentation. The event will take place at Le Cellier Restaurant & Wine Bar in Marina Del Rey, on November 5th.
Om is Life believes that comfort, relaxation and rest are essential to your health and happiness. They are committed to making products that bring comfort, relief and joy to your world. The Arthritis National Research Foundation is appreciative that Om is Life founder, Leah Murakami, chose them to benefit from her sales event and ANRF likes the fact that her travel line promotes environmentally-friendly products that ease people’s everyday living.
Om is Life got its start with the creation of the Om Traveler, multi-functional and adjustable travel pillow made for individuals looking for support and comfort. As a airline pilot and avid traveler, Murakami spent so much time on the road, she yearned for a travel pillow that would give her enough support while sitting in an upright position yet also comfortable enough to use as a sleeping pillow at her destinations. After a long search but to no avail, she decided to make her own. Thus, the Om Traveler and Om is Life were born. Since that time, Murakami has added the Omster travel pillow/plush for kids and the OmWrap scarf and shawl to her line.
Murakami will be presenting her newest addition to the collection, Om the Run, at the event. This new product functions as a no-bounce belt that will allow and encourage its users to effortlessly stay active and to keep moving without the hassle of worrying about their possessions.
"I needed something in which to carry my phone, money and keys while running, working out, or just on-the-go... yet I didn’t want to feel encumbered by it. Om on the Run proved to be just the solution. It’s lightweight, breathable, and molds to the body, so it can be worn comfortably, even all day long. Yet it's strong enough to keep your valuables safe and secure,” Murakami said. It is also ideal for travelers to keep their passport and money close by.
Om is Life founder's inspiration to support the Arthritis National Research Foundation stems from her mother, who was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Murakami’s mother is one of the estimated 1.5 million people in the United States who suffer from RA and its symptoms. "I wanted to not only produce great products, but also make a difference," said Murakami. "With my connection to rheumatoid arthritis, the Arthritis National Research Foundation was the perfect fit."
This event offers a great opportunity for the Arthritis National Research Foundation, it’s supporters and the community to spread awareness about the debilitating effects of arthritis and raise funds to support more arthritis research towards new treatments and a cure.
The Om Is Life event and events like it produce awareness and funds that allow the Arthritis National Research Foundation to support research to cure arthritis. Research will lead to discovering the causes, new treatments, prevention and cure for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, juvenile arthritis and other autoimmune diseases.
Om is Life was founded with the belief that the finest materials and quality workmanship make better products. This philosophy drives all of the company’s product lines, which are made from natural or sustainable sources whenever possible. All Om Is Life products are made in the United States, with the goal of bringing comfort and relief to our customers and to our world.
