O.b. Mighty. Small. Movement - Sharing It Forward For A Good Cause

Can you imagine missing school as a young woman because you didn’t have access to sanitary protection? Girls in Kenya often miss up to five days of school a month because of their period. (Source: Oxford University Study, 2010)

For millions of adolescent girls living in underdeveloped countries, sanitary protection is a luxury item. The lack of affordable, sustainable feminine care products can have devastating consequences for these girls, resulting in gaps in their education, and an increased vulnerability to poverty and disease. Huru International, a non-profit organization, in partnership with the o.b. Brand, is helping to raise awareness of this issue and provide the necessary personal care items to help safeguard these young girls’ health, and educate them on important issues like HIV.

Through a viral Facebook campaign – Share-It-Forward – the o.b. Brand will donate up to $25,000 to Huru International.

For every individual who shares the message about Huru International’s cause via the o.b. Outreach tab on Facebook.com/obmightysmall, the o.b. Brand will donate one dollar to Huru International, with a minimum donation of $10,000 and a maximum donation of $25,000. For every $25 donated, Huru can supply one girl with sanitary protection and other essential items for one year.

Just go to the o.b. Outreach Tab on the mighty.small.movement Facebook Page and click the pink "Click to Share" button to post the message on your Wall!

What a fabulous cause. I shared one similar to this A Day For GIrls on my blog a couple months back, and they are always looking for people to sew sanitary pads that are reusable for these girls as well.

Thanks for sharing!
