40 Days of Compassion – Feb. 26 – April 5, 2020

PH 40 Days of Compassion Graphic

It’s time for our annual 40 Days of Compassion campaign!  This year’s campaign runs from February 26, 2020 to April 5, 2020.

What is 40 Days of Compassion?

Every year, beginning on Lent, a certain group of anti choice folks gather to protest reproductive healthcare clinics in the United States for 40 days.  A few years ago we decided to take this spotlight on us and turn it into something good for the community.  That’s where we came up with the idea for 40 Days of Compassion.  We find local, grassroots orgs that align with our values and ask our supporters to support & lift up these groups that may not normally cross their radar.

This year, we are asking you to help support two different Alabama grassroots organizations – Women in Training (based in Montgomery, AL) and TKO – The Knights & Orchids Society (based in Selma, AL).

From February 26 until March 16, we will be featuring Women in Training (WIT).  Brooke & Breanna Bennett, 12 year old twin sisters from Montgomery, AL, collects period products & comfort items to put in their “WIT Kits”, which they distribute to young people (including non binary folks!) in need.  Hurrah for menstrual equity for all!  Here’s how you can help them:

  • Like their Facebook page, follow them on Instagram and Twitter, and learn more about them and their work on their website.
  • Check out their Amazon Wish List and purchase products they need to make their WIT kits.
  • Donate to their campaign here!
  • Volunteer your time and/or expertise!  Some of their greatest needs are folks to do communications work and graphic design.  Email them if you can help at: bennett@womenintraining.org

If you are local to Montgomery and wish to drop off your donation of period products or comfort items (handmade bracelets, journals, fuzzy socks & more) at the POWER House, email us at: mia@powerhousealabama.org to find out how.

Stay tuned to this page to find out how you can help our friends at TKO – The Knights & Orchids Society starting on March 17th!
