S4G Launches August 2022 Project to Support BRAWS.org!

Help Deliver Dignity and Basic Necessities to Adolescent Girls in Fairfax County

As much as we love GIRL POWER, there are downsides. Periods, heavy bleeding, cramps, overactive hormones, breakouts, PMS, and soiled undergarments are no fun. Now imagine being in school and not being able to afford pads, tampons, underwear or sports bras. For many girls, having a monthly supply of period products, sports bras to wear to school, and more than a few pairs of underwear are luxuries.  

Let’s make the 2022-2023 school year a less stressful one for adolescent girls in our community who need these items. Social4Good (S4G) will help BRAWS stock up on period products, sports bras, and undergarments for 30+ Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS). 

GOAL: One Month of Supplies for FCPS Students in Need

S4G has set an aggressive goal to provide one month of supplies (560 packages of pads + 130 boxes of tampons!) for FCPS students in need. There are two ways to donate, both of which are quick and easy and allow BRAWS to receive, organize, and distribute the donated products as efficiently as possible!  

1) Donate in-kind via Amazon wish list with items shipped directly to BRAWS. Be sure to include Social4Good on your order so we can track against the goal.  

2) Make a financial contribution via S4G’s Grapevine Platform or by clicking the Donate Now buttonDonors will receive a tax receipt from Grapevine and funds will be remitted to BRAWS for Social4Good's project.

BRAWS is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides menstrual supplies and new bras and undergarments to women and children in crisis, who do not have access to these supplies or who cannot afford them. To carry out its mission, BRAWS partners with 100+ shelters, schools, and community organizations statewide that support girls and women in crisis.
