VICTORVILLE – A Victorville woman took both her heart and her talents to make over 100 reusable cloth menstrual pads. After making these attractive and useful items she offered them for free in local Facebook groups for women in need.
“Too many women and girls are unable to afford sanitary products, and it can be absolutely horrifying,” said Amber Rose in one of her posts. “No woman should have to give up pads so she can pay bills for the month and no girl should have to go to school without sanitary support.” The pads she makes are different sizes and different absorbency and in each pack she provides she said that she will offer four pads including a liner, a small for light flow, a medium for regular flow and a large one for heavy flow or overnight use. If that was not wonderful enough, Amber is including a sample of stain-fighting soap and cleaning tips for these washable pads.
Amber said that the pads are 100% cotton with absorbent cores and buttons for a secure placement. She said that although a washing machine and dryer would be preferred, all one needs is running water and a place to hang dry the pads. She has received some response from her posts, but is looking for more who are in need. She said those in need must provide their name and address to email@example.com so she can send them out to you. She is reminding everyone to please not abuse the assistance she is offering by accepting the offer when you are not in dire need. “My pads can be purchased at mamamacabre.etsy.com.” She also said that donations are accepted at gofundme.com/mamamacabre to help her with the funds needed in order to continue donating and sending to those in need.
She posted that so far she received nine messages from women in need, some disabled, one on Chemotherapy treatment, and one who is not able to afford pads for herself after supplying them for her three daughters. “This is exactly what I wanted. [I wanted] to help women and girls in need,” said Amber excitedly as she shared the good news with friends via Facebook.
