Slipper Camp

Maggie Doyne & BlinkNow Foundation

2020-04-29 09_23_34-Microsoft Edge

Last night I realized I wanted this Slipper Camp to raise $ for an extraordinary woman’s mission. An extraordinary Mother. Maggie Doyne. She started BlinkNow – and Kopila Valley school – in 2006 in Nepal when she was 19 years old… with her babysitting money! Since then Maggie’s changed the lives of countless women and children through a school, a women’s center, a safe house, and a children’s home. Right now she’s quarantined in Surkhet with 54 of her kids. Slipper Camp Mothers and Daughters will be a fundraiser for them. A portion of every tuition will go straight to BlinkNow.
Here’s Maggie in a piece from CNN. Once you’ve seen it you’ll know why she and her mission are the perfect choice for us.

Due to popular demand, Slipper Camp – Mothers and Daughters – is back. It starts Mother’s Day (May 10th) and ends on May 28th! Many mothers and daughters have taken this Slipper Camp together and loved it.

I was inspired to create this Slipper Camp when I studied this photo of my mother and me. At three months old I’m already trying to crawl out of her arms. Eager to see the world. Unwilling to be contained. My mother smiles beatifically, unaware of the restless soul in her arms…

We’ll be writing about ourselves, our mothers and/or mother figures, our daughters-biological or chosen – nieces, goddaughters, stepdaughters or any young woman we mentor. We’ll be exploring the relationship between women of different generations.
