One of our clients, Nancy Bauer, is at it again. This one-woman-world-changer extraordinaire is collecting personal items for an organization called “50 cents. Period.”
You can read a little more about 50 cents. Period on their website at www.50centsperiod.org
Nancy is looking to fill some swag bags with fun and much needed personal items and toiletries for between 30-35 women. Ideas: pens/writing tablets; basic underwear size M; toothbrushes/paste; nail polish, special tea cups, etc.
As Nancy told me “I know it seems hard to believe, but girls in developing countries miss a week of school each month during menstruation. 50 cents buys a month of sanitary supplies and an uninterrupted education. 50 Cents Period represents a worldwide network of women dedicated to creating more options for girls by providing supplies, facilities and education related to menstruation. The solution is simple; the impact lasts a lifetime.”
If you’d like to contribute, we’ll have a donation bin at the studio through February 18. If you’d like to contribute but don’t want to shop for things, you can write Nancy a check, payable to “50 Cents Period”. All gifts are tax-deductible.
Thanks for being part of this grassroots campaign!
