Confidence sometimes takes time to develop. Growing up I was confident I would be successful because I lived in a loving home, my parents both had jobs, and I had food to eat daily and clothes on my back.My parents also instilled confidence in me as a child. They were constantly uplifting me and encouraging me.
In junior high I remember when my body was changing and I went through some physical changes. These changes didn’t occur until my freshman year of high school. I was scared and alone when my cycle came for the first time. I had friends over and I was staying at my grandparents. My mom had told me this would happen but I was unsure when that time would be. No one ever knows. Luckily I was able to get the proper products from the store easily. Not every girl has this luxury.
Did you know that right here in the USA, nearly 1 in 5 girls have missed activities because they can’t afford period protection. I played sports in high school and if I didn’t have the proper protection I could not have played.
Always live #LikeAGirl is all about helping girls stay confident. We have done that by encouraging girls to stay in sports and encouraging them to persevere through failure—both of which are key confidence boosters.
Ladies : To help #EndPeriodPoverty, Always and Walmart are donating a year’s supply of period products to 50 teams in 50 states! How AMAZING is this!!
In addition, by shopping at smarturl.it/WalmartAlways and purchasing 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!
It’s so easy to stock up and give back in 2019! Us women need to support other women and this is just one way of doing! You more than likely already purchase monthly protection so do it online and help another woman out at the same time!
Starting in 2019 let’s make a vow to do at least one good deed a month for 12 months! Wouldn’t that be incredible if the first month of the year you help to end period poverty by helping another girl!?
