Final Barb

Barb McCormack challenged the Guild to prepare 50 kits for this organization. We met that challenge, and then some!

  • Each washable Days for Girls kit contains 2 shields, 8 liners, a pair of panties (girls size 10, 12, 14 or 16. Please note that Size 16 girls is equivalent to women’s size 5), a washcloth, a hotel-sized bar of soap (larger sizes add too much weight to transport logistics), two one-gallon sized Ziploc Freezer bags, all contained in a drawstring bag to contain kit items and maintain privacy. Each kit lasts up to 3 years with proper care.

Over the course of three weeks, we had almost 60 complete kits ready for delivery. The kits were delivered to the Port Moody chapter of Days for Girls, and our kits are now on their way to Georgetown, South Africa.

Barb is already planning a Spring challenge! In preparation for this challenge please start saving your flannel scraps.
