Last week I sent these pads off to Days for Girls
(25 waterproofed bases, each with 2 bamboo fleece inserts)
There are many many women around the world who don’t have access to menstrual products, and this is particularly problematic in schools in Africa. Some organisations are working on getting cloth pads donated to these needy women, so that they can have a better quality of life, and in some cases, stay in school and finish their education.
I’m very passionate about this, so every now and then I spam people reminding them about this cause 🙂 I donate pads (not nearly as much as I’d like to), and try to spread the word. If you can sew pads to donate, there are a few organisations who will gladly accept them. If you can’t sew, then you can make monetary donations (these usually go to help cover costs of getting the pads shipped out to the communities in need).
