Leading with love
Being charitable is in our blood. And being part of a giving community has been a constant and rewarding extension of who we are. The issue of women having inadequate access to feminine care products is real and highly resonates with us as women, sisters, and community partners.
Women are more likely to neglect their own personal hygiene needs for the needs of their children or loved ones.
Women and young girls will skip daily activities, such as work or school, due to lack of feminine care products.
Period products are not supported by the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC).
We formed 28 Days Project to raise awareness of these issues and to raise funds to provide ongoing feminine care products to women in need for a less stressful, more confident period.
We are not alone in this mission. Our Partners, other non-profit organizations supporting women, are the key to making sure that we understand the needs of the women we serve.
Running a non-profit is a learning process, a fulfilling process, and not possible without the support of our donors. Please consider donating to 28 Days Project, and share the message of our mission to do more to support the women in need.
"Helping others is a way we help ourselves."
“Do what you love, love what you do.”
The rest really does follow.
From family and volunteerism to giving back to my community as an elected official, downtime is rare. Yet within that fast pace comes the energy and ideas to foster volunteerism that can impact the lives and futures of women in need. My community and social networks contribute to building important relationships and identifying 28 Days distribution partners and finding donors - making it possible to connect with and support women and girls in need.
Brainstorming is my hobby! Best ideas come during a morning run, commuting to work, or cooking dinner. I’m inspired by my friends, family, and those who seek to take risks and make change. My career path led me to work at some of the most innovative companies (Yahoo, Real Simple, Gilt Groupe, Amazon) with amazingly talented people. It’s those experiences and the skills I learned along the way that give me the confidence to turn an idea and funnel my passions into 28 Days
A tenacious problem-solver, I left retail to focus on creating a kinder, community-focused world.
Women, especially those in need, face enough challenges each day. A lack of access to feminine protection should not be one of them.
I am thrilled to be a part of the 28 Days Project because it helps women and girls focus on what they want to do, not on their dot.
What does a 40-something man know about the struggles of a menstrual cycle?
Absolutely nothing, of course. Until I got involved in the 28 Days Project. What began with a request for some help the most special women I know turned into a passion for a cause that I never knew I had. My 20+ years of investment banking never prepared me for life at an early-stage non-profit. I wouldn't change it for the world. I am inspired and humbled on a daily basis and proud of what we have accomplished. I am even more excited for the future.
With this team, the sky is the limit.
