FemmeCare / by Gloria Zingales

The FemmeCare Artist Showcase at Ludlow Studios was a huge success! An enormous thank you to our partners, everyone who worked to make this possible and for the abundance of donations. The space was filled with some incredible artwork and the light and love of those who attended.

We had THINX's She-EO and Co-Founder Miki Agrawal speak on periods and providing dignity. There was also a THINX pop-in so people could see the period panty magic in person! 

By the end of the night, we had about six enormous cardboard boxes full of various feminine hygiene product donations. Those donations were picked up and distributed by the organization Women In Need (WIN).

We are so excited to be moving forward. We have a lot exciting ideas for the future so be sure to stay tuned. A FemmeCare website is in the works and will be linked here as soon as it's ready for the public! 

Huge thank you to Morgan Collins for the photo coverage.
