HELP HEART RAISE THE FIRST 10K FOR #BLUSH!
Hundreds of local underprivileged Teenage Girls face the embarrassment of not being able to attend school during Menstruation as they cannot afford Sanitary Pads. Some “try and make a plan” with rolling up toilet paper or even newspaper, causing infections and other hygiene problems. This is not Dignified living.
Not attending school has a negative impact all around. Lessened class attendance equals lower marks. Lower marks lead to failing Grades. Failing grades often end up in Teenage Girls giving up on school, and without proper education, they are stuck in a spiral of struggle, menial job opportunities, less chances in Life and stuck in poverty.
#BLUSH will gift as many Teenage Girls at local schools as our #BLUSH Project funds allow, with Sanitary Pads on a regular basis so that they have better futures, higher self-confidence and the Dignity which comes from having Sanitary Pads during Menstruation.
Not a single Girl should stay away from school due to Menstruation. Help us to empower them to become the blossoming and powerful Women of tomorrow who can be inspired to make the difference we all wish to see in the World.
Please consider creating a Charity Champion page for yourself, and utilize any personal efforts to help HEART raise funds for the #BLUSH Project, or make a donation here on this Project Page.
