Can you imagine missing school as a young woman because you didn’t have access
to sanitary protection? Girls in Kenya often miss up to five days of school a
month because of their period. (Source: Oxford University Study,
For millions of adolescent girls living in underdeveloped
countries, sanitary protection is a luxury item. The lack of affordable,
sustainable feminine care products can have devastating consequences for these
girls, resulting in gaps in their education, and an increased vulnerability to
poverty and disease. Huru International, a non-profit organization, in
partnership with the o.b. Brand, is helping to raise awareness of this issue and
provide the necessary personal care items to help safeguard these young girls’
health, and educate them on important issues like HIV.
Through a viral
Facebook campaign – Share-It-Forward – the o.b. Brand will donate up to $25,000
to Huru International.
For every individual who shares the message about
Huru International’s cause via the o.b. Outreach tab on
Facebook.com/obmightysmall, the o.b. Brand will donate one dollar to Huru
International, with a minimum donation of $10,000 and a maximum donation of
$25,000. A step-by-step guide to sharing is pasted below.
For every $25
donated, Huru can supply one girl with sanitary protection and other essential
items for one year.
