Imagine a morning routine without everyday essentials like...
The next time you pop into a grocery store, take a stroll down the hygiene isle. More than likely, you won't see a WIC approved sticker on any of the every day essentials, leaving those in need without access to products most of us hoard in our bathroom cabinets and linen closets.
This is where the Triangle based non-profit, No Woman, No Girl Initiative bridges the gap. And all month long, I'm partnering with NWNG Executive Director, Shirnetta Harrell, in raising awareness + funds to support their mission: to provide hope, essentials and education to women and girls in the Triangle area, regardless of the circumstances of life.
So what does this mean?
Through donations (tangible & monetary), No Woman, No Girl is able to cultivate everyday essential bags in 14, 30 & 90 supplies, based on the individual needs of those who reach out through community & agency partners.
Imagine a teenage girl who's just started her period and has no way of obtaining the feminine hygiene products she needs due to temporary housing and financial challenges.
Or a single mom who has lined up a job interview but worries about her appearance because things like a bar of soap, shampoo, a toothbrush and deodorant aren't part of the WIC program she shops with her meager budget.
