#RSMBGivesBack: The Zoe Foundation’s Shana Rae Project

Our big event would not be complete without giving back to a local charity of our choice. For this event, we have chosen The Zoe Foundation’s Shana Rae Project. The Shana Rae project is a local chapter of The Zoe Foundation, which is a non-profit organization that helps to support families emotionally and financially, who have experienced the devastating loss of an infant. In honor of their beautiful daughter, Shana Rae, Erin and Brad Bourgeois started the Louisiana chapter to help support other families who have experienced infant loss. The Red Stick Moms Blog team has personally experienced loss this year, and we want to honor those beautiful babies by donating proceeds from the evening to this organization.

So, be sure to save the date, join the Facebook Event, and grab your friends for an AMAZING night out that you won’t want to miss!


Ericka P.
Ericka is originally a New Orleans gal who was raised to begin many dishes with a roux. Since 2011, she has happily embraced the Red Stick life with her husband of seven years, Tyler. Although she met her husband at an LSU game after her car broke down, they both attended Northwestern State University where she graduated with a Business Administration degree. After graduation, she and Tyler took a leap of faith and tied the knot. She dabbled in the corporate scene but eventually returned to school to pursue her passion for teaching and earned a Master’s degree in Elementary Education. She taught at an inner-city school in Baton Rouge for 3 years where she gained a family of students and colleagues alike. She’s traded in her beloved Expo pens and clipboard to stay home with her sweet and adventurous one-year-old son, Cullen. She is so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the sisterhood of fellow moms. Motherhood has been the best roller coaster she’s ever been on and even at the most challenging times, she tries to remember to embrace the chaos and “bless this mess” mentality. Ericka loves a good conversation, coffee, empowering other women {because we can all use a little encouragement}, laughing, baking and making memories with her family.
