    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The idea of a Moon Garden was born in response to the needs of many, on many levels;
    *to create within festivals a safe mobile haven for women and girls, a beautiful place of peace for connection with nature and each other.
    * to increase awareness and availability of environmentally harmless sanitary solutions that literally do not cost the earth!
    Ocean Conservancy volunteers collected 27,938 used tampons and applicators on our world’s beaches on a single day. A single reusable mooncup or cotton washable pads could solve this terrible waste of our precious limited resources as the effects of a throwaway society and climate change become a reality for us and our children. Our Moon Garden would host a small stall providing and teaching of other options and how to work with nature, not against it.
    * the need for a space where we can BE, and let down our guard knowing we will not be subjected to unwanted attention because we are without company. It is sad to say this but in a world where the reality of statistics are stacked against our safety, sometimes there needs to be a place to go at public events where there is a boundary created for us. Within this space we do not have to find new strength or energy reserves to say 'no' - there is no pressure to deflect.
    * a structure that is movable so that we have shelter and can host showings of educational documentaries and films that highlight positive, self sustainable solutions to environmental and social issues.
    * fostering creativity and connection this space can also be used to host craft and self empowerment workshops or meditations

    As two single parents we know how hard it can be to find the time or space to be submersed in creativity or connect deeply with ourselves even in a calm and nurturing atmosphere like we want to create, so the plan is to extend this over time to include a creche with registered childminders next to the women's space so that mothers and children alike can have their needs met.

      Ok! So 2nd day and 2nd donation (thanks for the tenner Mum!) things coming together... decided to lower the target as even though this will not cover half of what we need for the final vision of the shelter, decor, garden, lighting and projector we hoped for, it is more achievable and every little helps! Also have seen we can extend our crowdfunding time so will be extending that for the maximum time possible. Yay! Fingers crossed. Have faith that if this idea will be of benefit to people then it will happen, someway, somehow. :)

      Ok so 3 days in, technical hurdles still being tackled, no donations yet but lots of positive feedback from family and friends, many women wanting to see this space manifest, and 17shares so thanks to everyone who is putting their positive energy into this! :) This is the shelter we would like to get for the garden...totally moveable and more importantly; possible to erect, take down and store with an armful of kids. Rather pricy - Lets hope one comes up 2nd hand!
