The Partnering of PICC and PODI is Making A Difference
Lives of 100 Precious Souls
Learn how you can help
Previously, I have shared articles with you about Periods of Dignity Initiative (PODI) and the mission they have taken on. We learned a lot about what young girls have to deal with in Kenya and other third-world countries. I have been so affected by the needs of these girls. It’s time to step up to the plate and make a difference! I, for one, will be supporting this cause on a regular basis and I hope you will join me!
Elseba Adhiambo became a part of the PICC Team as a Campaign Manager for PODI in December 2017. Elseba is the representative of PODI and the girls affectionately call her “Auntie Elseba”. She travels many miles by foot to be there for her girls.
Through her dedication and hard work, these young ladies needs are met each month. They no longer have to worry about the stigma of before, but are able to concentrate on their studies. Those that can complete their primary school, secondary school and can transition into college have the prospects of a brighter future.
Take some time to look and see what PODI is doing in the lives of these young ladies.
You will enjoy reading about them and their experiences.

PICC Around the World
This category “PICC Around the World” is set up as a convenient way to give to charities outside of the U.S. that use PayPal without having to pay a large fee each time.
We recently learned that one charity PICC promotes had experienced a change in the PayPal fee for donations. It went from zero to $4.99. This means if the donor wants to give $10 the transaction would total $14.99
We at PICC are trying to find ways that will be more convenient to give and fee-free when giving outside of the U.S. The good news is PICC will absorb the fee by sending quarterly (or when the total of gifts exceed $49) each month.
All that is necessary is that the donors use the optional area ‘Company Name’ to indicate the charity the gift is to be given to. PICC has been around since March 2016. If you trust this vehicle and would like to give without having to be hit with a hefty fee, then you are welcome to use PICC Around the World.
Currently, we promote only one out-of-the-country charity. Many donors are reluctant to give using gateways they are not familiar with; neither do they want to absorb extravagant fees when giving a small donation. The charity has suffered because of this. But if there is a way we will find it. Love finds a way.
