Offer: Reusable Cloth Sanitary Napkins
I am hosting a Cloth Sanitary Napkins making party for teen girls who would be forced to miss school otherwise due to lack of menstrual supplies. I understand there is a need for these in Africa, but I am not limited to that country either.
I am planning the party for early May 2011 and we are hoping to create 300+ pads, which would supply approximately 25 girls with 12 pads each. The pads would be used approximately twice a cycle and would last an average of 10 years if they are cared for properly, which would reduce the need to source new supplies each month.
Cloth sanitary napkins are also known to reduce flow, cramping, and in some cases relieve endometriosis pain, but these are just added bonuses.
If you know of an organization who would distribute these FREE OF CHARGE to girls in need, please contact me.
