It’s truly the best feeling when you get to stock up for that time of the month while helping other girls to be as confident as you are. At this point, you might have already heard of the Always Live #LikeAGirl campaign. If you have not, it’s a meaningful campaign from Always & Walmart to help #EndPeriodPoverty. I have talked about this campaign on a previous blog post. I also shared my experience about my difficult life 10 years ago in Vietnam. Be sure to read it! (provide link to post here) It is tough for me to think back but I think it is important to share because it relates to the Always Live #LikeAGirl campaign.
Period poverty is a real problem in the U.S. Nearly 1 in 5 girls have missed school because they can’t afford period protection. They do not just only miss school, but also the activities they love. And the side effects of missing out on their activities outside of school can be just as real.
These activities help build a girl’s confidence and skills, and missing out can limit a girl’s potential and opportunities far beyond puberty.
Always Live #LikeAGirl is all about helping girls stay confident by encouraging girls to stay in sports and to persevere through failure—both of which are key confidence boosters.
Always and Walmart are donating a year’s supply of period products to 50 teams in 50 states. Also, during January, for every purchase of a 3-pack box of Always Pads, Always will donate a pack to girls in need across the US. This donation will only be triggered via purchases from smarturl.it/WalmartAlways during the month of January.
You can get involved and help, too! Simply go to smarturl.it/WalmartAlways to purchase a 3-pack box of Always Pads and Always will donate a pack to girls in need. It’s a win-win – you stock up AND help a girl stay in the activity she loves.
