We are thrilled to be an Impact Partner with Days for Girls to help create a world with dignity and opportunity for all through sustainable menstrual care solutions and health education.
The Rise Gatherings community has raised over $10,000 via our events and social media! We are over our goal of $10,000 which = 1,000 Days for Girls kits! For every ticket purchased to our Weekend Getaway, Rise Gatherings will fund one Days for Girls kit – which supplies a girl with reusable menstrual supplies that last for 7 years.

Basic hygiene that many of us take for granted can completely change a growing girl’s life by helping her break the cycle of poverty and live with dignity.
Days for Girls is committed to supporting a girl throughout her entire lifecycle, from providing her with a Days for Girls Kit, to teaching her health education, to offering training for her when she grows older, so that she can produce Days for Girls Kits and support hygiene needs in her community. Rise aligns with Days for Girls’ three pillars, here’s how we’re giving back:
For every ticket purchased to our Weekend Getaway, Rise Gatherings will fund one Days for Girls kit – which supplies a girl with reusable menstrual supplies that last for 3 – 4 years.
At Rise Gatherings Weekend Getaway, and year round, we are providing opportunities for our community to get involved with Days for Girls by sharing their skills, time and support.
