Help Samunnat take the next step

Angels in flowing sari silks from the ladies of Samunnat Nepal on PolymerClayDaily

A flock of angels will flutter through PCD this spring as we raise travel funds for the 3 Samunnat women who will visit the US in October for training and market development.

Gita, Pramila, and Kopila are anxious to meet face to face with those who have supported them and watched the Nepal project grow for 11 years!

The angels are elegantly draped in repurposed sari silks. Each artist has given her celestial creation a personality, tucked a special message for you under the bodice, and folded it into a gift bag.

Each costs $50 and will be mailed free in the continental US. Ron Lehocky is spearheading the effort. Make your checks out to Ron Lehocky. Mail to: 1763 Casselberry Rd, Louisville, KY 40205. Contact him at

If you’d like to support Samunnat in other ways, you can click on the Paypal donate button next to the angels in the right column on PCD and make a donation in any amount. The ladies share their excitement on Instagram. Learn about Samunnat in a nutshell here.

I’ll be escorting the visitors and will talk about our plans, ask for your suggestions and help in upcoming posts. With your help, we can do this!

Note: Ron’s address is correct now!

          Ron and Cynthia,

          Thank you for bringing your art and these ladies to the world. I am a registered nurse and dabble in polymer clay for stress relief. I give my creations to patients and co workers.

          I am inspired by your support of these women and amazed and awed by what they do for their community. I will be mailing a check soon!

          Thank you again,

          Vikki Meloy

              Namaste Cynthia and PCD readers. We are so grateful for this and the ladies were SO excited to see this post! Kopila loved how you cut around the angel Cynthia! To say these ladies are beside themselves with excitement doesn’t touch the sides! They are working so hard to be ready somthat they can come back and share with others what they learnt. And they are SO keen to say thank you personally to the community that has helped them so much! Thank you all.
