Coffee Party Feminists & Lunch with Louden are both parts of the  BE THE MEDIA Project by Coffee Party USA | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

The Coffee Party USA membership believes that money-in-politics is the keystone issue in this republic's democracy today. WOMEN are now targets for special interests that use the influence of their political contributions to impose their religious, economic, and political will. Coffee Party Feminists is a part of the BE THE MEDIA project. It is intended to share evidence of special interest targeting and to report on actions being taken across America to defend and restore women's rights.


When you JOIN the Coffee Party or RENEW your membership, you become one of the grass roots funders of our BE THE MEDIA Project.

Have a Maxi-Pad Party and Be a Contribution to Others

Have a Maxi-Pad Party and Be a Contribution to Others | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

From a FB friend who would like to remain anonymous.

My friend Nick invited me to a "maxi-pad party" over the holidays. The admission was package(s) of feminine hygiene products to be donated to a local women's center. To his amazement, he received nearly 10,000 donations, enough for a two year supply for his designated shelter. I hope this wonderful concept takes wings. I thought Nick's story was a great pantyliner for pant suit nation.. 

J'nene Solidarity Kay's insight:

Combine fun and support for others by "charging" admission. This was for a women's shelter. Yours could be a homeless camp. Toothbrush/Toothpaste Party?
