It’s a Pajama Party (virtual) LIVE April 14th: Helping Women in Kenya

We hosted a My Mommy Manual Pajama Party to help raise money for Mom It Forward and The 12 for 12K Challenge’s joint mission for April/May to help empower women in Kenya. Our intention was to take our mission of “onnecting through practical and inspired tips” beyond the written page to the LIVE experience!

So Practical Mommy and I were on for our first ever Pajama Party LIVE on Tuesday, April 14 from 6-9pm CST. We raised money for the cause, with people joining the party in their PJ’s from home for giggles, live music, and of course, Practical and Inspired Tips!
