* Lunapads meeting (Vancouver, BC Canada) June, 2013
Me as KillaWarmi Project had a meeting with Madeleine Shaw (co-founder Lunapads) at Vancouver to know each other and our work with girls & women. We soon were passionately sharing our visions and dreams, and had a great time together. She kindly donated KW 250 menstrual pads for girls thru Lunapads One4Her program - which found their way to Peru, being shipped to my friend Lisa's house at Berkeley and safely into my suitcase all the way to Lima, Peru! They will be given to Carhuaz Andean girls next school year 2014 as part of the menstrual health edu program KW will be giving :)
