She's Making a Difference: Jan Healy
We love highlighting inspiring women who are making a difference in the world! Our friend, Jan Healy, founded an organization called Renewing Dignity, whose mission is to provide period supplies to women and girls in Northeast Florida who can't afford them. When we heard Jan's idea, we couldn't wait to help her! Patti, Natural Life Founder and CEO, joined the Renewing Dignity Board of Directors and immediately donated hundreds of our zippered pouches that will be filled with period products to give to girls and women in the community through hospitals, schools and shelters.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
We volunteered at a Back to School Event that helps families get their children ready for school by providing clothing, new backpacks, school supplies, shoes, underwear (and now menstrual supplies!) to about 800 children. Patti and her daughter Madison were at the table proudly distributing period supplies inside our "Live Happy" pouches! These donations were met with big smiles from the girls and their mothers! Comments like “Thank you for doing this!” and “We appreciate you for thinking of this important need” were heard all morning and it was SO rewarding!
