The clock is ticking and the countdown is on for Lunapads’ owners Madeleine and Suzanne to wing their way over to Uganda as part of Shanti Uganda’s Yoga & Seva Journey. As part of their contribution, we are raising funds to enroll 300 teenage girls in Shanti Uganda’s At Risk Girls Program, a health and wellness program focused on inspiring futures for girls and teen mothers in Kasana Town Uganda. As part of the workshop, each girl will receive AFRIpads (Ugandan-made cloth pads based on Lunapads) and a health education manual.
Thanks to generous donations from our customers and friends we have raised enough so far to sponsor 124 girls to attend. We’re almost half way there but we need your help to get us to our goal! For only $15 you can sponsor a girl to attend the workshop where she will receive life altering health education and washable menstrual products that will last her years and ensure that she can get the most out of her education. In case your not already aware of the immense impact that getting an education can have for a girl (not to mention her family and her entire country) in the developing world, check out this wicked video from The Girl Effect.
For the price of a movie and popcorn, you can change the life of a girl in Uganda. So spare yourself the regret of wasting 2 hours watching A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas while consuming an entire days worth of sodium in one sitting and instead do something truly amazing with your hard earned dollars!
Visit Lunapads.com and donate now, then come on back and enter the giveaway below! Not only will you be contributing to a better future for a girl in Uganda, you just might win yourself a DivaCup which could change the future of your period! Don’t believe me? Don’t take my word for it, listen to these folks.
Thanks in advance for your donation and good luck!
P.S. Full disclosure: I have every intention of seeing A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas and eating popcorn for dinner. No Shame!
