We had so much fun at our service project to benefit Days for Girls on February 4. Fifty people helped make 300 feminine hygiene kits for girls in Kenya so they can continue to stay in school and have choices in their lives. The World Health Organization says that the single most effective way to spend a $1 on global health outcomes is to educate girls and women. As Days for Girls states, "Let's turn Periods into Pathways for girls around the world."  
Judy Johnson, Days for Girls leader with the Maple Grove Rotary Club, guided us through kit making. Rotarians, family, friends, and community members lent a hand to uplift these girls. Minneapolis City of Lakes Rotary Treasurer Sheila Gothmann presented a $1,000 check to Judy to help the Maple Grove Rotary Foundation continue this work around the world.
