PODI – Elseba on Partnering with PICC

The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (NIV) that “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.”

Periods Of Dignity Initiative (PODI) has been very fortunate to have a young sister organisation that aims to grow together with us alleviating the suffering that our young girls go through during their menses. This new sister organisation is PICC (People In charge of Change).

PICC has been and still is very instrumental in the PODI sanitary distribution in:

Promotion of the Campaign

PICC has been promoting our campaign on their blog, since December 2017. They have been raising awareness of the existence of the problem of lacking sanitary napkins and how it affects the academic achievement of our girls and negatively impacts on their self-worth and dignity. The organisation has also been publishing short testimonies of the girls about their aspirations, giving our supporters some form of report on the impact that their contributions are making in the lives of the young girls.

PICC is a very important partner to PODI in ensuring that the need of these lovely angels are met; PICC will  post campaign updates for them as they become available. All gifts to PODI can be given directly to PODI through PayPal. Give to periodsofdignity@gmail.com

 

About Gail Pinder

I was born in New Jersey and raised in a small town in Pennsylvania. I have lived in many places – Texas, Arkansas, Delaware and finally Michigan. Several years ago, I met a wonderful man – a Vietnam Navy vet who shares my love of God and Country! We have been happily married for more than 15 years. I have two children of my own and Emery has two children. We have four wonderful grandchildren. Emery and I both have Multiple Sclerosis. He is now in a powerchair and I am his caregiver. Life is somewhat challenging, but we do the best we can. We tell everyone that “We have MS, but it doesn’t have us!” I have always loved to write and my dream was to becoming a “writer”. PICC gave me a window to my dream and an opportunity to share my thoughts with others. Our faith is strong and I don’t know where we would be without it. We are determined to spread a little sunshine in a darkened world. I've been married to my wonderful husband for 14 years. I have two children of my own and Emery has two children. We have four grandchildren. My husband and I both have MS and I am his caregiver. We tell everyone that "we have MS but it doesn't have us!"
