I am thrilled to announce that the Dot Girl crowd funding campaign has been given a second life thanks to the TV program The Crowd Funder Show. Thanks to sponsorships, you will be able to donate to this campaign and receive your donation back in the form of gift cards to popular stores like Starbucks, Sears, and Home Depot.

Donations from the Indiegogo campaign have been flying out the door. So far Dot Girl kits have been donated to Sun Valley Indian School, The Lincoln Community School, First Place School, and Girl Scout Troops 1573 and 1574 located in New Jersey.
Here is what Gail Gilman, nurse at Sun Valley Indian School, had to say about the Dot Girl kit donation:
“There were 9 girls who participated in our hygiene classes. The girls were presented with their new kits on the last day. They were very excited to have received them. Our students are limited in their access to something like this. We are in a very impoverished area. These kits provide something tangible the girls can hold on to. It encourages them and excites them to look forward to a new beginning in their lives. They can mark this important milestone in their lives with answers and less confusion. They have these kits and know that people care. That they are not alone. They can use the heat pack and carrying case again and again as they need to. We had a great time with them. Thank you so much for helping these young girls in this way”.
Thank you again for all of your support during the Indiegogo campaign. Please spread the word about the new Dot Girl campaign at The Crowd Funder Show so that we may continue to donate kits to girls who need them.
