Help young girls in developing countries with o.b. Share it Forward

o.b. has spearheaded an outreach program to Share-It-Forward. Give Back! They have a Facebook application where you & I can share this message and help the o.b. Brand raise $25,000 for Huru,

For millions of young girls, the lack of affordable sanitary protection can have devastating lifelong consequences, leading many of them to abandon school, and potentially face poverty and disease. Huru International is helping girls in developing countries by providing the tools they need to complete their education and safeguard their health.

Share It Forward is campaign that I whole-heartedly can get behind. o.b. Brand will donate $1 to Huru everytime a user (me and you) shares the above message on Facebook. As we share the message, and it spreads from friend to friend on Facebook, more women and girls in developing countries will reap the benefits.

Many of us take sanitary protection for granted. But for millions of girls, sanitary protection is a luxury item. I'll be honest, it's something I never thought about. It's a basic need that many of us think every young women has at her disposal. So not true!

Huru International has come to the rescue. By developing a cost-effective solution to this often-overlooked crisis. By producing Huru Kits, they plan on providing girls with the resources and knowledge they need (as well as the sanitary protection) to obtain their education and protect their health.

Huru Kits are provided to at-risk girls at no cost. Each Huru Kit comes packaged in a drawstring bag that doubles as a backpack, and includes:

  • Eight reusable sanitary pads
  • Three pairs of underwear
  • Detergent-grade soap to wash the sanitary pads
  • A re-sealable, waterproof bag to safely store used sanitary pads
  • Educational insert focused on proper Huru pad care and usage, and 
  • Life-saving HIV/AIDS prevention information

How can YOU participate in the o.b. Share It Forward program? It's easy peasy! Just visit the o.b. Outreach tab on FaceBook might. small. and become a fan (if you aren't already) and click on the "share" button to re-post the mission message. You'll be asked to check what state you live in, and check the box that says you've read the Terms & Conditions. That's it! You've spread the word!

The o.b. Brand hopes that o.b users, and women like YOU, will help raise $25,000 for Huru International. They have dedicated a minimum donation of $10,000 to Huru International. As well as giving a $1 additional donation per every person who shares this important message… up to $25K.

I feel that the o.b. Share It Forward campaign is such a worthy cause! How can so many young girls and women receive an education when their basic health care needs aren't even taken care of? I know that sanitary protection wasn't/isn't something that I ever thought twice about. But it truly is a luxury for so many in developing countries. I implore you to join me, o.b. Brand, and Huru International, and Share It Forward!

I hope you join me in this worthy cause!

Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of o.b. and received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
