Share it Forward – #givingback

With your help, the o.b. Brand hopes to donate $25,000 to Huru International, a non-profit organization that provides sanitary protection to adolescent girls in developing countries. Why is this important? Watch the video, and keep reading, and you’ll learn why this is, sadly, a major issue for way too many young girls….

The lack of affordable sanitary protection can have devastating lifelong consequences for adolescent girls in developing countries. Unable to afford sanitary protection, countless girls resort to dangerous alternatives, such as finding and recycling used pads, or improvising their own from unsafe materials. Many more simply avoid school for the duration of their periods, missing as much as an entire month each school year. This creates insurmountable gaps in their education, which leads many young girls to abandon school altogether, and increases their vulnerability to poverty and disease, including HIV infection.

A basic necessity for us, an unaffordable luxury item for others

We take so many things for granted… Can you imagine being a teenage girl, and not having access to these types of products? I hear it often asked, “Why help those in other countries? We have Americans struggling that need help here!” And that’s true. There are many girls in the US that come from incredibly poor families, whose parents struggle to provide basic necessities. BUT – in those types of worst-case scenarios, most teenage girls can find help at school, at a friends home, or from other resources. In some developing countries, there are no other options. And the results can be devastating.
