Placer County California
My college roommate, Janet, asked me to join her on a trip to Uganda in Jan '14, and to help spread the message of the need for washable menstrual pads as most of the girls and women there use items we would never consider using each month.
I created my own pattern (Righteous Rags) and asked all the ladies I knew to help bring flannel to flow! It was awesome. Still, we did not have enough for all the girls and women in the small villages we went to.
After receiving a HUGE donation from Lutheran ladies last fall and in preparation to teach them how to sew, I stumbled upon Days for Girls, Int'l. I loved their flannel liner pattern and instructions, as well as their website which connects people to DfG chapters.
I signed myself (and of course Janet too) as the leaders of the Placer County CA chapter.
With the help of several church groups and individuals, Janet and I hope to bring 500 kits to Uganda in January of 2016.
Your donation will help to purchase fabric, panties, ziplock baggies, as well as cover any additional excess baggage fees to get them there. Thanks so much!!
Sandy & Janet
