It has been a week since our #motHERHOODpopup and we are still reminiscing on such a beautiful event. This idea came together to celebrate Mother’s Day while shopping and supporting other small businesses and entrepreneurs (and mompreneurs). However, this pop-up would not have been possible without the support from YWCA’s Microbusiness Advancement Center (MAC). We appreciate YWCA’s Microbusiness Advancement Center (MAC) for co sponsoring our community event. 🏘🌱✨💓 MAC believes in an economy based on healthy, sustainable, locally owned small businesses is key to making that vision a reality. 🙌🏽 And our pop-up is a true testament of their vision!
We wanted to share images from the day. Thank you to Rescophotography (https://www.facebook.com/rescophotography/) and Marisol Flores-Aguirre, Executive Director of YWCA’s Microbusiness Advancement Center (MAC) for capturing these moments!
It was the first time ever that MAC and Mi Reina Mobile Boutique hosted the motHERHOOD Pop-Up! The community was invited to spend the day (re) connecting with other moms, nanas, tias, cousins and friends at the House Of Neighborly Service (HNS) on Saturday, May 20, 2017 from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm. Attendees were also encouraged to bring and donate unused feminine hygiene products (tampons, pads, menstrual cups) to support homeless women as part of the YWCA’s Project Period.
It was so nice to really (re) connect with friends and family members and to see young and old enjoy the pop-up. The House Of Neighborly Service (HNS) hosted our event. HNS is located on 243 W 33rd Street and is an arts and culture center in the heart of the City of South Tucson. It is such a beautiful campus with lot’s of positive activities and programs going on year-round! We feel proud and honored that our motHERHOOD Pop-Up was held on the campus.
We would like to THANK all the vendors who participated in our MotHERHOOD Pop-Up! Also, special thank you to Yvonne Garcia for hosting a “Little Hands Cooking Workshop.” Children (and parents) were able to pop pop corn and amaranth to make alegria (popped amaranth bars). The focus of this workshop was to center engagement with our children and familiarity with the fires in our home by cooking healthy Indigenous snacks. Everyone who participated were really engaged!
