Please Help Us Reach Our Fundraising Goal Before Wednesday!

Greetings!

I am thrilled to say that we are now more than half-way towards our fundraising goal to purchase a new industrial sewing machine and serger for our Days for Girls Ecuador group!

There’s £1,405 already raised of our £2,500 goal as I write this – hurray!

We now have 3 more days to reach our goal before the end of October…if you have not already, would you consider contributing to our campaign?

…and if you have already sent us a donation, thank you so much!

I work here alongside a group of local women who sew and distribute reusable cloth menstrual pads and also provide education for women and girls in areas where they may otherwise not have healthy solutions for managing their menstruation.

Days for Girls is an international charity, working in 141 countries worldwide and we are very proud and excited to be the first official Days for Girls enterprise in the whole of South America!

P.S. I know that many people find it confusing that the currency for this campaign is British Pounds rather than US Dollars, which is the currency in Ecuador…this is an unfortunate quirk of the GoFundMe platform…as I’m registered in the UK, it ties the campaign to there and forces everything into Pounds – apologies for any confusion!

New Sewing Machines for Days for Girls Ecuador!

As you may know, I’ve been involved for the last year in setting up a branch here in Ecuador of the international charity “Days for Girls”, which provides reusable cloth menstrual pads and other menstrual solutions for women and girls in areas where they may otherwise not have healthy solutions for managing their menstruation.
 
I work here alongside a group of local women who sew and distribute the pads, along with menstrual cups and information on women’s health.
 
We are in fact very proud and excited to be the first official Days for Girls enterprise in the whole of South America!
 
We currently wish to raise funds to invest in a new industrial sewing machine and serger to move our work forwards more efficiently. We hope to raise £2500 by the end of October for these purchases.
