Share-It-Forward With o.b.

First, I am thankful that I live in a country that allows us so many day-to-day conveniences! I sometimes tend to forget how wonderful I really have it. I am fortunate to have a warm home, access to stores, healthy food and so much more. Unfortunately for others in developing countries, every day conveniences are not so easy to access. 

For those in these developing countries, not only do they have to live day to day in poor conditions, but they also struggle with other important health issues. Millions of girls in these countries have to suffer, because unlike the women and girls in the United States, they don't have easy access to sanitary protection. Yep, sanitary protection, something that we (as women in the U.S.) take for granted. Young girls within these countries are dropping out of school because they are unable to afford sanitary protection or even worse, resort to to dangerous alternatives, which increases their susceptibility to poverty and disease, including HIV. 

Thankfully, there is something YOU and I can do for these young girls. o.b. Brand has created  a Share-It-Forward Facebook campaign to raise money and awareness for Huru International, a non-profit organization that provides at-risk young girls in developing countries with the resources and knowledge they need to complete their education and safeguard their health.  Now through November, the o.b. Brand will donate $1 (up to $25,000) for every person who visits the o.b. Outreach Tab on the mighty. small.™ movement Facebook page and "Shares" a message about Huru International's mission.

Here's how you can help (p.s. it's SUPER simple!)
