Wow. We are still on a high from our magical event on April 12th, AN EVENING OF FREEDOM, when Aura Freedom hosted a performance of The Vagina Monologues to raise awareness of gender-based violence and raise money for our human trafficking program in Nepal. The energy inside the theatre at 918 Bathurst Street was unbelievable and there wasn't a single chair empty as our amazing cast of bold women poured their hearts out on stage with performances that blew our audience away. People were moved to tears and cheers as they experienced the pain and emotion of the monologues.
Together we raised an amazing $4000 for our projects, but the best part of it all was the HUMANITY we felt throughout the evening. PEOPLE WERE MOVED and we felt it. Much love to all of our volunteers, sponsors, supporters and Anthony Tilotta - New Age Consciousness for the sweet tunes (www.anthonytilotta.com)

A special thank you to Madres Jewelry who supplied us with gorgeous earrings and bangles, all handmade by marginalized Haitian women in the Dominican Republic. These accessories were purchased by Aura Freedom and the sales of them at An Evening of Freedom helped us raise even more funds. We were happy to feature these beautiful accessories at our event and contribute to the empowerment of marginalized women in the Dominican Republic in this way.
