Keopha launches with a laugh

Laughter is the best medicine…
We had our official launch party on Monday 29th August with a fabulous Laughter Yoga session with Merv Neal of Laughter Yoga Australia.  This man is just incredible, curing his sickness and disease through the power of the mind and plain and simple laughter.
Elizabeth and Kara had attended one of his sessions before and thought there was no better way to bring happiness and joy to people than having a laugh.  Its a bizarre feeling at first, forcing yourself to laugh, but after ten minutes it becomes an uncontrollable feeling that sees you laughing constantly without prejudice, without judgement and without feeling like a dill. The mind can not differentiate between “forced laughter and spontaneous laughter” so the impact once you’ve finished is the feeling of pure joy.
So you’re probably wanting an update…the orders have now been placed and we are in limbo….waiting for the much anticipated stock to arrive and despatch to you wonderful people during October.
Our website is now up and running and taking PRE ORDERS after being inundated with requests. So, if you missed out on our introductory offer via our crowd fund pre order campaign you can now pre order via our website HERE

Don’t fear, Keopha’s newsletters will not be the usual spam annoying newsletter.  We want to bring you mindset tips, real life stories, tips on how to use your planner, positivity, updates, FREEBIES and much more. All of which can inspire, empower and motivate you to stay on track with a positive mindset to have your best year yet.

Wowsers…..what a month!

Keopha: Planner and Diary
Elizabeth and Kara have had a lot of fun this month attending the Trade Fairs and finding new and exciting products to compliment the My MindFULL Year planner. We want to bring to you, fun, exciting, unique and quirky things that inspire you to stay positive, be present and enjoy life the way its meant to be……HAPPY!   We can’t wait to introduce them to our Keopha Community soon…..we know you are just going to love them.

Kara and Elizabeth have been hustling hard in the background to collaborate with some fabulous local businesses, so we will have some exciting announcements coming to you soon. We don’t want My MindFULL Year in the hands of anyone and everyone, we want to align with people who have the same values as us, the same vision and who can inspire and empower people to make a difference. Its this reason we have walked away from some opportunities but we believe for every door we have closed another fabulous door has opened.

This mindset is something we ask you to cement in your way of thinking. Life doesn’t always go to plan, it can get tough, things don’t always go your way but as Kara says (c/-  Oprah Winfrey) “Everything thats happening TO you is happening FOR YOU”.
Things happen for a reason and those tough life challenges you face are not blockages but are detours to a greater path so allow yourself to learn and grow from what is presented to you.  We have had some detours but they have lead us to greater opportunities, greater relationships, greater people that are more aligned with our vision.

Thank you for your patience!

Keopha: Internal view of Mindfulness Planner

Thank you…..and thanks for your patience!

So first thing is first……our crowd fund campaign has now completed and that means the introductory price has come to an end….BUT the good news is you can still pre-order via our website once it goes live later in the week.

We’d like to thank each and every one of you that has supported, pledged, pre-ordered. We are so humbled to know that YOU, our Keopha Community shares in the vision we have to share a lot of happiness.
Secondly…..and more importantly we would like to apologise for any confusion there may have been in the last 48 hours with PayPal payments. We encountered some technical difficulties with our account so were unable to receive payments. PayPal has now rectified this issue and your pledges and payments are slowly processing. So, thank  you again for your patience with this matter and apologies if you were confused with what happened.

Make sure you are following us on Instagram where we showcase our wonderful product and offer ideas on how to maximise using My MindFULL Year.  We will also have some more wonderful FREEBIES coming as well as some wonderful tips and tricks from the professionals.

If you haven’t checked us out on Facebook make sure you have a look, as we have been posting some great updates, an event for the online launch to keep you in the know and some great little happiness, health and mindfulness tips.

Thank You……you are amazing!

Keopha Founders: Kara Vaina and Elizabeth Casabene
We are so totally humbled and grateful…..

OMG Can you believe we have reached our first target in only 6 days……YUP 6 days only.  We couldn’t have done it without the love and support of all you wonderful supporters.

By reaching our target, this will allow us to do the minimum print required so we are really excited to be able to bring it to life. BUT….we have bigger dreams…..to disrupt the stationery world, to add happiness to more lives, to inspire people and most of all help people carry life’s memories with them. We would love to print in bigger numbers to allow us more available online after pre-order is finished, so keep sharing on social media, pledging and supporting.  We love you all!
Don’t leave it until later in the year as this price will not be seen again and you get FREE Shipping……so plan ahead for Christmas gifts, birthdays, teachers presents, etc.
We are so overwhelmed by the response and have had a number of corporate companies contact us regarding our planners as corporate gifts and co-branding for staff diaries etc.  Its not something we expected but are just so humbled by the response.

This vision was conceived after attending one of Deborah Hutton’s Balance workshops. Kara sent her an email thanking her for the push and inspiration she needed as well as sending her a planner to show her what she had inspired.  Deborah was in awe of the product and posted out on her social media channels and website.  We were so chuffed as it was totally unexpected. What a lovely, inspiring and supportive woman she is. Check it out HERE

Thought for the Day
Get up every morning and tell yourself “I CAN DO THIS”

Making a Difference

Keopha: My Mindful Year supports The Orange Pigeon

Its been a project in the making of nearly 12 months which has seen late nights, hard work, dedication, passion, creativity, tears, laughter and much more…..BUT its been well worth it. Our planner is moving along nicely, and fast might I add.

So….We are excited to announce we have recently partnered with The Orange Pigeon Foundation where a portion of each sale from our planners will be donated to making wishes come true and put a smile on people’s faces.

Elizabeth and I have always been avid donators to charity and love making a difference where we can. There’s nothing better than giving back to the people in need when we have been fortunate enough in our lives to live a very happy and comfortable life. That, we are extremely grateful for.

“The Orange Pigeon is a unique and special organisation and a symbol of hope, care and compassion for adults 18 years and older who have life threatening or terminal illnesses by granting them a wish or providing them with a simple comfort in their lives, giving moments of happiness and distraction away from their illness to help lift their spirits. The only adult wish granting organisation of its type in Australia.”

All charities rely on donations and corporate sponsorship however the smaller ones don’t get the exposure and support that the larger ones do. We were wanting to make a difference and find the right charity that connected and resonated with us on a personal level. We had been really touched by The Orange Pigeon story and the work that Lisa and Jen put in. After meeting Lisa at an event and hearing their story, we arranged coffee and cake date night with Lesley Lindsay, CEO….and it was an instant friendship with us all, a great connection of laughter, vision, tears, passion and a want, to make a difference.

Whilst we are living our dreams and passion to inspire you for a better life, travelling the world, creating memories, there are many people that don’t get to. We are extremely proud and honoured to be making a difference in these sick people and their families lives and plan on raising as much awareness and bringing as much joy to their worlds as we possibly can. Having already granted 115 wishes in only such a short time frame we look forward to granting so many more in years to come.

So get behind The Orange Pigeon to make a difference to these people…..bring a smile to their face and a distraction to their every day life battles.
