What a Week!!!!!!!

Lubna all set to travel to Northern Pakistan to deliver Days for Girls kits and training

Well firstly it has been simply amazing that we have our very first Days for Girls presentation in Pakistan – and it went so well with Lubna doing the presentation.

Lubna explaining Days for Girls

 

She does not know it yet – but this kit will change her future

 

Explaining how the items work… certainly better that what they have been using

 

Listening to the presentation by Lubna – things that even their mothers did not know – and how special they are because – without periods there would be no new life

 

Shy smiles – but important information will change their lives, their choices and their futures

The girls and their mums loved it… and they are very happy!! We have another lot of Days for Girls Kits being presented as well as the dresses soon – and then I am sure we will have a request for more – but it is very exciting!!!!!

the Days for Girls Kits

So how great is that!!!!

Kits for Sale $35

I am just about to look at having Days for Girls (and women) kits available for sale right here in the shop. They will be $35 each (included postage in Australia) and will include a bag, 10 liners and 3 shields which will last for three years with proper care. Washing instructions are included. If you prefer natural chemical free support for your menstrual needs (or incontinence needs) we are happy to provide kits for your use. Once I have time to photograph the kits I will pop them up in the shop (probably next week). Extra shields and liners will be included at a later date (I will get there)

Shopping for fabric frenzy

Okay I have to admit I love buying fabric (which is pretty fortunate really) … so I am going to take myself to Spotlight on Sunday to purchase fabric as it is super cheap at the moment!!!!!! So far I have donations of $150 which at $2 a metre makes a heap of lovely dresses. Just pop into the donations section here and add y9our amount – then let me know your favourite colours in the comments to seller section – and I will buy the fabric …. you can choose your amount and I am grateful for anything ….. we have wonderful ladies who will sew – and we need fabric at the moment to sew with!! And honestly there is nothing so lovely as to seeing your little dress on a sweet girl or baby!! Please feel free to donate fabric too – always totally welcome!!!!!!

I made this one and it makes me smile …. i love the cute piggies in this fabric!!

I am grateful for the opportunity to do presentations to the War Widows tomorrow, CWA Canberra at the end of the month and St John Ambulance in August – I am so grateful to have these wonderful opportunities and to meet people who want to help – thank you for the opportunity.

Tax time

I know it is almost the end of the month – so in keeping with the frenzy that happens at this time of the year we can accept tax deductible donations through rotary. Please go here – and don’t forget to write ‘Tuggeranong ACT Australia’ in the requests box!!

I am still waiting for news of the Northern Territory and will shoot off an email on Monday to see where they are up too – but other than that – we are all accounted for – thank you as always for your support – I am truly grateful at the commitment of you all and the difference we make in kids lives.

We are small but we are mighty

Thank you
