Two Girls & Some Pads

Two girls and Some pads started when Gaby posted on Facebook about how she wanted to donate some pads, and tampons to homeless women.

I, Ashley, reached out to her and started giving her all these ideas and asked if I can help out.

After I posted the mission, the response was jaw dropping. I still am a little overwhelmed with how big of response we’ve been recieving. I know I speak for both Gaby and I when I say how amazing you all truly are.   It’s great to know how many people are more than willing to help.

Some amazing people have reached out to me in hopes to partner up and broaden  the audience of Two girls and some pads. Giving us more exposure and most importantly getting more people to donate items. We have exciting news coming!

We got a great opportunity to join the team for La Verdad and they provided us with a platform to really talk about our goals, missions, and how we got started. That will be aired on November 3,2016. We are so thankful to have joined forces with such a great podcast, they are full of positivity and energy.

The mission is simple: We want women, to have access to sanitary items while menstruating.

Eventually we have intentions of growing the organization into providing women and children with clothing, jackets in the winter, clean clothes and other items that are essential. However we are at the grassroots so this is where we start.

The items we are looking for are as follows :

  • Pads, tampons, liners
  • Underwear sizes S-XL
  • feminine wipes (individually wrapped)
  • Body wipes
  • Zip lock bags
  • Refreshing spray
  • Travel sized shampoo, body wash,conditioners
  • Deodorant
  • Lotion

 

There will be designated ‘drop off locations’ soon. We are still in the works with setting these locations up throughout Chicago, to make donating easier. However I am still personally setting up pick up times with everyone who wishes to donate!

I will be updating the Facebook page as we continue to grow and begin the assembling the care packs, we are still in the collecting stage. We plan to have a distribution day the date will soon be released also.

I am very open to feedback, ideas, & opportunities!

Once again, thank you so much for all the support. What we are trying to do is really coming alive and we have hit the ground running! Thank you all again

Caitlyn Jenner

I have debating on posting on about Jenner, Jenner makes it a point to always stay in the media.

And it’s very annoying to me. At any given moment I can drop at least 10 MORE IMPORTANT topics that people should be talking about. But what does that really say about me writing this post.

 

When I too, can really be writing about more important topics. I guess in my defense. Certain topics are so deep, and need to be written out very carefully. I just don’t have the time to really construct a piece that can hit every point, and defend every idea good enough to be thrown into the world. So I will hang out in the kiddie pool where I can write a quick opinion and get it out. Without the guilt of not thinking it through completely.

 

So I am just going to start with some of my brutal honest opinion. Without any political correctness. Because this is my damn blog.

I think Caitlyn Jenner is a fucking idiot, that has NOT one clue what it is to be a women. And if she did, she would not be making a fucking fool of me, my gender and I.

She is blinded by her born gender,race,economic privilege. She lacks compassion. (Which is just a good person trait, not gender specific) Actually pains me that I am typing she. She has made statements like, The best part of being a women is putting make up on and getting dressed in cute clothes….. That is so insulting to me.

The best part of being a women to me. Is that I have a vagina. Which may be weird to say, but I really love mine. I think vaginas are beautiful and are the secret to world peace, and the universes are hidden inside of me. I carry a piece of the world and so does every other woman and when we get together. We are everything. I love my body, and how it feels, changes, the way it curves at my waist. I love how deeply I can love. The way my body and mind are connected. My breasts, and how full they get upon arousal. Being a women, is so sexy. I love how sexy I can feel. I can be everything and yet nothing at all  within a second.

Caitlyn Jenner will never know what being a women is. I say this because she has yet to change any of her political, social, emotional views. I try to be very understanding to the trans community. Does the trans community really even welcome Caitlyn? I don’t even think my topic involves the trans community… It’s just Caitlyn all on her own is one contradicting ass.  Moving on.. When you feel that you are a gender other than what you were given. Wouldn’t you be involved more in that gender? You would embody,relate, understand the things that, the female gender feel. Because ultimately that’s what you are saying you are. Other trans people like, Laverne Cox. I like her and what she does for women. She is a positive educated, well thought out women. I praise her for constantly pushing the agenda for what women can do. And not be limited to do. So for Bruce to say she is a women, and always has been. Is bullshit to me. Or maybe regardless of what gender you can be. You just can be a fucking idiot across the board. Bruce is a fucking jag bag so Caitlyn is no better.
