We are so excited to launch our Limited Edition Project EMplify x Twrl Mooncake Moments Box — a curated box of goodies featuring AAPI-founded brands to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival, and to give back to the AAPI community.
This year, the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival is on September 21, 2021. In Asia, the Moon Festival is about spending time with loved ones, similar to how Americans celebrate Thanksgiving together. Friends and family gather to barbeque, share stories and enjoy the full moon. Our hope is that the Mooncake Moments Box will spark multi-generational conversations and encourage engaging (and safe!) gatherings between friends and family members, including our elders who have so many life experiences to share with all of us.
Twrl Milk Tea will be donating 100% of the Mooncake Moments Box proceeds to Project EMplify’s AAPI programming aimed at changing the narrative of what Asian and Asian American success can mean by teaching underrepresented communities the types of soft skills (what we call ''power skills'') that are needed to navigate life and workplace challenges.
We can’t wait to see your “mooncake moments” with friends and family playing games, enjoying delectable Asian treats and drinking delicious Twrl Milk Tea!
