We did it — We gave 25 period packs to Bayo yesterday!!

This Friday, they’ll be on a plane to Haiti and on their way to 25 girls at House of Hope Haiti.

On June 15, Bayo will be back to share with us whatever we need to know to modify future packs. I hope many of you can come to this meeting — it should be really interesting to get direct feedback on how girls in resource-poor Haiti are managing their monthly menstruation with the reusable cotton pads we’ve sent them.

Huge THANK YOU to everyone who contributed along the way…
