This past Friday evening we hosted a grand Red Tent of a launch party for Moon Mysteries! It was the most fun we have had all month and we came away wishing we could do it every full moon!
The weeks of planning meetings and shopping and preparing all for the final night that came together was like a dream, but not without the support we had our husbands, friends, and family helping every step of the way!
Now after a few days of quiet reflection, we have to say that this book launch was a very humbling experience for all of us. The number of women who came up to us sharing their stories and ideas for the book really blew us away! There was so much wisdom in the room that we were wishing that we had brought pads of paper with us to take notes of all the amazing places and things that women are taking and doing with Moon Mysteries!
The night was filled with speeches and laughter, music and singing. We sold and signed books, and raised money for a cause that is close to our hearts-The Pads4Girls program which sends girls in Africa washable maxi pads so that they can go to school when they are on their moon time.
We were thrilled that pretty much every woman who was there bought at least one ticket and made our raffle huge success! We raised enough money to buy 10 Pads4Girls kits through Lunapads to send to Uganda with the Shanti Uganda Team!
Thank you to everyone who bought a ticket!
The final raffle Basket that we gave away was filled to the brim with wonderful goodies and we would like to take a moment to thank the businesses that helped our cause and by donating to the evenings fun!
