Over the last several months Traveling Postcards has been collecting postcards to bring to the newly built City of Joy in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We have had the good fortune to meet Eve Ensler and her wonderful team at V-DAY. Her effort to bring healing and dignity back to the women and girls of the DRC is extraordinary.
"The City of Joy will act as a refuge for healed women survivors of rape and torture who have been left without family and community. It will provide educational and income-generating opportunities, and support women in becoming the next leaders of the DRC.” Eve Ensler
Join me in building a collection of cards for the resilient women and girls being served in this community. Traveling Postcards will inspire them to heal and feel connected to the global community of women who care for them. This is your opportunity to share your wisdom and help to make a difference in someone else's life.
Traveling Postcards will be in Emeryville, CA this Saturday, April 24th. We have teamed up with a wonderful photographic non profit called FOTOVISION . Come out and support our efforts, enjoy your creativity, eat and drink and listen to some wonderful Congolese music!
