For every product you purchase in our Genial Day store, one period care item is made accessible to women that are homeless, low-income, and or/living in poverty.
As I watched my daughter grow, I realized the importance of trust and open communication around the issues of puberty and menstruation. How we address these topics affect teens’ confidence and psychological well-being. I’ve always encouraged my daughter to ask me questions and to never feel embarrassed about it. I wanted the same to other girls, so I‘ve started a project called ECO Generation in my native country of Lithuania. The goal is to empower young girls by helping them better understand their bodies and minds during puberty and to introduce them to available menstrual products while emphasizing ecology, sustainability and teaching them proper recycling.
We’ve donated over 50,000 sanitary napkins to local schools.
In other words, we've made 50,000 periods go by easier and helped girls just entering womanhood feel more confident and live healthier, more fulfilling, lives.
A visit to the Oncology Department of the Children’s Hospital was heartbreaking. The short visit was the start of our friendship with Mamų unija (Mothers’ Union)–a Lithuanian Charity that helps mothers and families of children going through cancer treatment.
Supporting Pregnant Women
It all started by planting a tree in the Garden of Life. That's where I have met four amazing ladies who guide and council women going through the crisis of unplanned pregnancy. Genial Day donates it's products to Crisis Pregnancy Center, a non-profit organization that helps meet the medical and psychological needs of pregnant women, in addition to providing daily necessities.
