I remember when that first monthly moment happened. My parents were divorced and I was temporarily living with my Dad. I had no clue what to do or what I was going through. No one had talked to me about it and I was so embarrassed about what was happening to me. Of course once I was able to talk to my mom she took care of all my questions and physical needs but do you know that in other areas of the world girls don’t have the resources we do and can’t solve everything with a call to mom and a trip to the drugstore.

For millions of girls, sanitary protection is a luxury item. The lack of affordable sanitary protection can have devastating lifelong consequences for adolescent girls in developing countries. Since its inception in 2008, Huru® International has developed a cost-effective solution to this often-overlooked crisis. Through the production of Huru® Kits, the organization aims to provide girls with the resources and knowledge they need, including sanitary protection, to complete their education and safeguard their health. 

Well, o.b. is doing what they can to answer the call and they need your help! Right now they are running a Facebook Mission to raise $25,000 for Huru® International, which translates into 1,000 Huru®  Kits (or 8,000 reusable sanitary pads), valued at $25 each. They need YOUR help though! o.b has agreed to donate $1 for every fan that shares the Huru® International’s mission on their wall!

*The o.b.® Brand will make a minimum donation of $10,000 to Huru® International, and an additional $1 per consumer who shares the message about Huru®, up to $25,000. Donation not valid for consumers living in Alabama, Maine, Massachusetts, and South Carolina. Limited to one share per consumer.

What is a Huru®  Kit?
–    Huru® Kits are provided to at-risk girls at no cost.  Each Huru® Kit comes packaged in a drawstring bag that doubles as a backpack, and includes:
o    Eight reusable sanitary pads
o    Three pairs of underwear
o    Detergent-grade soap to wash the sanitary pads
o    A re-sealable, waterproof bag to safely store used sanitary pads
o    Educational insert focused on proper Huru® pad care and usage, and
o    Life-saving HIV/AIDS prevention information

    This is such a great cause for something I never really thought about before, but it makes good sense. Thanks for sharing the news with all of us.
