A Night in Zimbabwe

Kekla is feeling under the weather, so no regular post from her today. But this is a great opportunity to remind you that tomorrow is TWM's Spotlight on Zimbabwe event!

If you're interested in helping women in Africa, learning more about the culture, exploring social entrepreneurship and sampling the rich flavors of Southern Africa's food and wine, we hope to see you tomorrow night. Rather than a standard lecture, this event will feature handmade African papercrafts, scrumptious mini-pumpkin fritters, and the stories of a former Peace Corps volunteer, a Zimbabwean actress, and the woman who started Eco Africa. All of this is for a great cause too because part of the proceeds go to support Eco Africa Social Ventures, which helps women in crisis support themselves.

So if you'll be in New York City tomorrow night, you definitely won't regret going to this event! It's not exactly a night in Zimbabwe, but it's as close as you're going to get without straying far from home.

Here's all the general info:
