Plan and NEXT STEPS
Tanya and I have spent the past two months working out the details of what we want to do and what we need for the next 6 months. We are calling this our Phase 1. Here are the highlights:
In order to realize our vision, we believe 3 steps are necessary.
These 3 steps occur in a continuous cycle starting with foundational awareness and education over the next 6 months. How will we achieve this?Awareness and education will consist of 2 key foundational components:
1) A number of online and live events nationwide including a college tour for our signature event Pussy the Seminar: Creating Safe Space Dialogue about our Most Sacred and Controversial Body Part, a series of online events called Menstrual Musings and a fundraising strategy that includes Moon Money and Tea parties.
2) A women’s “registry” that can be used not only as a foundation for research but also as a tool of support and connection for women.
They are part of our overall Phase 1 6-month plan to establish a foundation, build the team, and, ultimately, get the word out.
In the spirit of cycles, we kicked off our first Menstrual Musings online event at midnight of the new moon (Saturday night/Sunday morning 10/15/16). For the remainder of this year, we will be conducting Menstrual Musings online events every New and Full Moon (please join us!) and scheduling the college tour and Tea parties! Contact us to host one in your city!
To support the rollout of these events over the next 6 months, we are welcoming all donations but seeking $5000 donations from 13 people (total $65,000).
