One of the things that we talk about often is how thankful we are even in the midst of COVID-19.
We are thankful because for some, this season presents challenges for girls in obtaining their basic necessities.
This Fall, Always continues their mission to show girls they are#SupportedAlwaysby starting with a donation of 4 million pads and by partnering with various experts to create virtual activities that can help girls grow in confidence, wherever they are.
The global pandemic has brought about all kinds of insecurities.
A recent study conducted by
@Always_brand revealed that, since the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 1 in 3 young people feel less confident because they’ve missed after school activities and nearly 1 out of 3 parents are worried about their ongoing ability to afford period products - an issue known as period poverty.

When you purchase a pack of Always pads@cvspharmacyyou will spark a pad donation to Feeding America network of food banks!
In addition to grabbing a pack of Always, join Lyric and I every Wednesday for the#SupportedAlwaysInstagram Live sessions.
These sessions will help girls continue to stay involved in the activities they love.
For everyone who joins or watches a session, Always will donate a month’s supply of period products, up to half a million products, via our partner@womenssportsfoundation, who is helping girls stay active all over the country!
Lyric my 12 year old has been the best big sister a mom could dream of.. I’m so thankful for her stepping in from time to time to just love on the little ones so that I can zero in on things that won’t get done without me.
I asked her why she was being extra sweet.. she said “oh it’s Because I love you mom.. and oh mom there’s this video game that I want from GameStop that ....”
