Hi all! My name is Kitty, and I’ve been crunching numbers as the bookkeeper at Lunapads for just over a year now. On my own time, I’m studying Accounting and Sustainability at UBC. I also love painting, playing the piano, practicing yoga, nomnomnom-ing, and playing dodgeball dressed as Wenda– as you can tell by my picture.
February 14th, 2013 marks my 23rd birthday. It’s also the day of “looovee”– Valentines Day! Blessed by loving family and friends, and inspired by all the wonderful women I have met in the Lunapads world, I wish to share this blessing with girls in developing countries.
Everyday, thousands of girls miss school when they are on their menstrual cycles. Why? Many of them can’t afford the conventional disposal sanitary products. This year, I will be donating my birthday in hopes of raising 23 cloth pad kits (or more!) for girls in developing countries so that they can stay in school and live a more empowered life. Not only are they the more sustainable solution, they also last for over five years!
I know, making 23 birthday wishes is a bit greedy, but birthdays only come around once a year — so please take part in making my wishes come true! Visit our secure donation page and designate your gift to my 23 Birthday Wishes fund. Thanks so much, everyone!
