BENEFITING: DAYS FOR GIRLS INTERNATIONAL
EVENT DATE: Oct 31, 2016
The Collin College Social Justice Club and the PRC Social Psychology class are hosting an event called "Go with the Flow!" This fundraiser benefits Days for Girls, an organization that provides eco-friendly, reusable feminine hygiene kits to girls around the world. Lack of access to feminine hygiene products causes girls to miss 5 days of school per month---this translates to 60 days a year. A $15 donation can provide a girl with a kit of supplies that lasts 3 years--this gives a girl 180 days back! This project aims to make a measurable difference by improving access to necessary supplies. Lack of access to feminine hygiene is related to school absenteeism, infection, stigma, and poverty. We hope to provide 150 kits to girls in need. All together, this gives girls 27,000 days back! Let's go with the flow!
