The La Luna Project 2018 & 2019

The Beginning...

La Luna and the La Luna project began in October 2018. Originally selling soaps from Instagram and donating a portion of each sale we made to our "Passion Project Fund" Which we then donated to a range of charities around NZ such as Woman's Refuge, The Auckland City Mission, and local refuges housing those living tough over Christmas. Inspired by all the amazing kindness being poured out by fellow Kiwis, we wanted to pay it forward with our own Charity! Being a trained Primary School teacher myself, I saw first hand some of the harsh realities our children were facing... and wanted to see a change. And so, the La Luna Project began!

The La Luna Project 2018 & 2019

At the heart of La Luna is the La Luna Project. A portion of each sale we make though La Luna, goes into helping those who need it most. 

Through pack's developed and created by the La Luna Team during late 2018 and 2019, the La Luna Project is able to provide our Tamariki with the essentials they need to thrive, grow, and flourish. After reaching out to schools, we work out what is needed in certain communities and do our best to provide care packs where and when needed.
These packs include... 

1. Period Poverty Care Packs: Packages include, sanitary items, spare underwear, some gentle handcrafted soap, chocolate & a little information pack with tips on self care etc.
2. Snack Packs: These Packs will include 5-6 items made up of a range of healthy, energy filled and most importantly yummy snack foods.
3. Stationary Packs: Packs filled with the essentials such as books, pens, resources, calculators, school bags, lunch boxes and whatever else they may need.
4. Winter Woolies Packs: These packs include a pair of warm socks and a beanie.

Through 2019 we were able to send packs to over 30 schools around Aotearoa, meeting with staff from the primary and intermediate sector, talking with social workers who were based in low decile schools, and developing packs that catered for the needs of their students. 

The La Luna Project - Christmas Edition 2018 & 2019

Each year La Luna strives to support families who need it most in our communities. Christmas should be a time filled with love, cheer and celebration... and we want to do our part to ensure that all Kiwi's get to experience a little extra aroha during these sometimes testing times.

2018 - We raised much needed funds to support incredible organisation's such as Give a Blanket, The Woman's Refuge and The ACM in their efforts to support Kiwi Families over the festive season through housing, gifts and food!

2019 - La Luna created and distributed care packs, food and gifts for families in need this Christmas. In order to make sure that these little parcels really help those who need it - we sent them to both the Auckland City Mission and the De Paul House (St Vinnies).
