Dear We’Moon Land Sisters and Friends,
Over the years, many of you have spent time in Oma, our community round house. For more than 20 years OMA has been the center of life on We’Moon Land–our Mother House. Here womyn gather to cook, eat, meet, sing, circle, read, and laugh together. This beautiful two-story house contains our library of feminist books, which womyn are free to browse during their time on the land. It is the site of our central kitchen, storing food for residents and visitors, as well as our community living room, two bathrooms and bedrooms, particularly for visitors with mobility issues.
We who love to share this land are seeking your support for overdue infrastructure maintenance, in anticipation of more womyn coming to We’Moon next year. OMA—the only inside space available for large gatherings on the land– is in need of long overdue caulking, staining, and gutter work, essential steps in the long term care of the building. We also want to extend the primary electrical line to reach Yula Yurt and to meet future needs for additional projects. Our goal this fall is to raise $10,000 for supplies and labor, in addition to the $3,500 we have already raised. With your generous contributions we can ensure that womyn will be able to share community in a safe indoor space for generations to come. Funds raised this Fall will pay for repairs in 2023, the year of our 50th Anniversary Celebration.
OMA is the heart of our communal endeavors. She supports the homestead residents plus a vast community of womyn who visit throughout the year for personal retreats, group campouts, work parties, moon circles, high holy days, and other special occasions. She protects us all from Oregon rain, gusting winter winds, and the scorching heat of the hot August sun, giving all who visit shelter and safety within her walls.
Your gifts will help maintain an Oregon womyn’s land treasure—We’Moon Land is one of the longest surviving intentional womyn’s land communities in the world. Donations may be made online to We’Moon Homestead (the non-profit that collectively manages We’Moon Land) via the We’Moon Paypal link, also available on the website homepage. Checks may also be made out to We’Moon Homestead and mailed to PO Box 1636, Estacada, OR 97023.
THANK YOU for your generosity and commitment to preserving this ever-evolving womyn’s land. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 503-630-3628 with any questions you may have.
