O. B. ~ Share It Forward

 

Some of the things we take for granted mean so much to those who lack the resources for basic hygeine.  As a woman, I am thankful to be able to stop at the local store to pick up sanitary items for protection during my monthly cycle.  In other part of the world women are ostracized during this time. Not able to participate in school or other family activities.  Just thinking about a young woman experiencing rejection from others due to a natural function of the female body breaks my heart.


 Huru International has came up with an innovative idea to provide Huru Kits to women around the world.
A Huru Kit includes basic items such as underwear, detergent grade soap, and sanitary pads in a drawstring bag that can be upcycled into a backpack.  Huru Kits include educational information on basic health care sanitary practices and life-saving information on HIV prevention. These kits can change a path for a young women enabling her to complete her education. The best gift you can give to another human is the necessary tools to have self confidence and knowledge about their health.


O.B. Tampons and The O.B. Share it Forward Program has pledged a $1 donation to Huru International for every person who shares the message on facebook.  I encourage you to take a few seconds to share this message. Together as a whole we can make a difference for these women. Its so easy to do!
