Thoughtful underwear with hidden powers. For every pair purchased you fund 7 pads to a girl in need.
OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY
AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:
For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.
AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:
After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.
THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM
I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS
LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME
This is amazing. Not only are you benefiting from amazing underwear, you’re helping a girl in the developing world stay in school and educate herself. Education is power. If that’s not an excellent example of feminism, I don’t know what is.
Look what I found.
An Ancient Relic of times long past.
While the true meaning of these temples have been lost to time, most scholars agree that they were once a gathering hall built to the worship of the gods of old.
This weekend, activists in Uganda - a country where homosexuality is punishable by death - held their first Pride.
This is the epitome of courage. I have no other words.
this is making me tear up holy shit
A suicidal Orashia Edwards was suddenly detained earlier today, with no warning given to him or his family
[Leeds UK]: Earlier today (25 July), Edwards was detained after a routine sign-in at Water Side Court in Leeds, north-east England.
His family say he was given no warning and no indication to him or his family that he would be detained.
Orashia Edwards who is bisexual lost his asylum case earlier this month and is now threatened with immediate deportation to Jamaica West Indies… His family say Edwards was suicidal after losing the legal case, and his mental health has worsened considerably over the past few weeks. ‘They’re refusing to tell me where my son is. Something has changed. I am very, very terrified,’ a tearful Brown told GSN on the phone.
After he lost his legal battle, he said he would ‘prefer to be a dead man than get on a flight to die. I have nowhere to go’.
Leeds for Change, an organization campaigning on behalf of LGBTI asylum seekers, successfully got a flight cancelled that was meant to deport Edwards last January. The group alleges the Home Office decision behind who is granted asylum have been prejudiced.
Some activists also say the Home Office finds it difficult to grant bisexual people asylum, saying there is an attitude that they could ‘pass’ in their home country.HOW TO HELP
- No Borders Leeds - Orashia was detained again for the 3rd time this morning as he went to sign on in Waterside. His most recent appeal was denied yesterday yet nobody was informed until today, again leaving little or no time for Orashia, his family or his legal team time to prepare. Please help inform others and pass on this latest news. Thank you
- Petitioning Teresa May, Home Secretary; Ed Miliband, Labour Party; Nick Clegg, Lib Dems Don’t Deport Orashia SIGN PETITION HERE
- The Home Office are really feeling pressure from support & publicity around Orashia’s campaign. Please keep the pressure on. Write to your MP using this template letter and send it to your MP here. More contact details on this page.
- Please donate to his legal fund here. Orashia’s family are working every hour possible to raise funds which have already cost over £2000 so far. All of Orashia’s legal team are working pro bono :) so the costs are just covering his court fees.
Thank you so much for all the support so far
