We received a thank you note we from the Poulsbo Chapter of Days for Girls - here is the full text:  "Thank you for your continued support with time and funds which help us reach our goals of education, health, and dignity for girls around the world.  Your generous donation of PUL will allow us to make 4,000 shields, which is enough for 2,000 kits!  Imagine the smiles on faces as those kits get handed out!  So much appreciated, (signed) Shirley Wilder, Poulsbo Chapter Director"
 
From President Kim: For my recent President’s project, I chose to purchase 250 yards (5 rolls) of 55" wide PUL (Polyurethane Laminate) waterproof fabric that is needed to make hygiene kits for girls.   
 
I am planning a “working” evening meeting where club members will be able to cut the PUL (both measured pieces and on the die cut machine).  We are hoping to cut 1,000 shields.  Imagine the difference we will be able to make!
 
This video briefly explains the items in a Hygiene Kit.
 
Below  is a photo of a hygiene kit.  The two shields filled with liners are in the lower left corner.
