General FAQs

What exactly will my donation give her?

Each US2.50 donation will guarantee a set of 2 antimicrobial, reusable Saafkins to a girl in need in India. This set will #GiveHer5 for an entire year, so she doesn’t miss school/work during her period.

The problem is huge! How will my small contribution make a difference?

100% of the donations go towards purchasing Saafkins for girls in need in India. Every US2.50 has the ability to take care of a girl/woman's needs for 1 entire year. That is a huge difference in her life and every life counts!
