If you were a girl in Malawi you would not attend school on the days that you menstruated — simply because you do not have access to menstrual supplies. As a result of missing so many days a year, you would not complete secondary school. Under-educated and personally disempowered, you would likely be married off at 12 years old and pregnant shortly thereafter.
Educated girls uplift the world. They marry later, have fewer children, earn 25% more and become leaders in their communities — and break the cycle of poverty. And in Malawi, empowerment is as simple as THIS: provide girls with menstrual supplies so they can attend class 5 days a week. It’s THAT easy to foster major social change. $10 bucks will keep a girl in school.
LunaPads is taking the leftover fabrics of Wal-Mart sundresses and Reebok track pants to create a re-usable collection of washable cloth menstrual pads + panties. We want to get kits to 10,000 Malawian girls. Each kit costs $10 bucks.
(Typically Pads4Girls Kits cost $28 to produce, but the savings from scrap fabric means they can make kits for $10.)
Can you help keep a girl in the classroom?
1 girl? 5 girls? More girls?
I’m donating in $500 to send 50 kits to 50 Girls. I know that at least one of those girls will learn enough in school to break free and do more good in the world. (I also love that we’re keeping hundreds of pounds of fabric out of landfills.)
The vision: 10,000 more girls in Malawi going to school 5 days a week, learning about the world and expanding their possibilities (and reams of fabric staying out of landfills.) Sisters and citizens! I’m calling on you: $10 or more from you can make it happen!
Who runs the world? Girls — with our help.

If God is in the details, then the Soul is in a good Q&A. And that’s the substance of Podcast #4: Beliefs, Movies & Man Crushes. Your questions make it so easy for me to rant and offer some (hopefully) useful how-to’s and tricks of the trade. The “trade” being discernment and devotion. It’s deep, it’s lite, I hope it’s alllll right.
I’ve talked to rabbis, and priests, and monks, and people who I consider to be high esoteric practitioners. I’ve figured out a few things about joy… and I’ve woven them into this week’s episode of LIGHT WORK.
I’ve struggled for a long time with wondering if pain and suffering were essential to growth. Are they essential to me being a more expanded, clear minded, loving, joyous, sexy human being? Do I have to hurt to get there? Well, I fucking hope not… but I haven’t figured out a way around suffering yet.
You see, there is suffering in the sensitivity. It hurts to feel. And we’re raised to strive—to desensitize—and it’s killing us. I think the strength is in opening. That opening to feel is where resiliency is born.
I want to go deep into this conversation about creating Fulfilling Friendships. I’ve got lots to say about engaged listening, self respect, breaking up (when necessary), and celebrating our friend-loves. I’ve also got plenty of opinions and practices for self-compassion, deep spiritual devotion, healthier relationships with our damn phones, and better quality sleep.
I asked about a zillion people what they wanted more of in their lives. The #1 craving, by far: more fulfilling FRIENDSHIPS. We’re connection starved, we know this. Let me give you a peek into my own circle. In this first episode of LIGHT WORK, I use my own friends as how-to examples for creating radical support and sweetness in your life.
There are still some basic good manners that should prevail no matter our generation, station, or affiliation. Here’s what it might mean to be classy, kind, and considerate whenever you are able (and we are almost always able).
The LIGHT WORK series will unfold over six episodes. These are girlfriend-style sermons on serving the world while staying sane, cosmic connectedness over tech addiction, self compassion and more fulfilling friendships. Poetry. Hilarity. Peeks into the personal.
