A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that I teamed up with Tampax to do a really special thing. Tampax presented this amazing opportunity to facilitate a donation of 40,000 tampons to an organization of my choice. I love that my platform allows me to collaborate with brands that are really passionate about giving back. Although clothes and fashion are great, the real core of what having a following is all about is being able to impact the lives of those around you. So I am tremendously blessed be a vehicle to give some much needed feminine hygiene products to an organization that is doing just that.
The organization of my choice is the Midnight Mission located in downtown Los Angeles. According to the LA Times, Los Angeles has a homeless population of approximately 47,000 people and “has more chronically homeless than any other city”. Skid Row, located in the heart of Los Angeles, contains one of the largest stable populations of homeless people in the United States. Midnight Mission is a beacon of light situated at the start of Skid Row. They offer “a bridge to self-sufficiency for people experiencing homelessness through recovery services, counseling, education, training, workforce development and continued care services”.
I had the opportunity to visit the mission to see the donation from Tampax. To see so many boxes of feminine hygiene products stacked up in their warehouse was an incredible sight. I know that a lot of women are going to benefit from Tampax’s generosity as they go down the road to recovery and a better life.
Thank you Tampax for your commitment to empowering women all around the world to be happier, healthier and more confident!
