The campaign, Bamboost, introduces bamboo fiber health and hygiene products to urban slum communities, as well as age-appropriate curriculum books. People living in urban slums are making only $3-5 per day, but are spending more than $20 on diapers and sanitary pads per month. By introducing bamboo fiber products to slum communities, they will reduce that monthly cost to only $3. That means that every month, parents will be able to buy $3 packages, which consist of bamboo fiber diapers, bamboo fiber sanitary pads, and a monthly age appropriate curriculum book for young children. There will be enough quantity of products to last a month, and the monthly curriculum books will work on developmental milestones that are specific to the exact age of the child.
But they need more support and awareness to bring this mission to a reality! So, if this cause speaks to you at all, I encourage you to visit their site and help by donating any amount you can, and also by helping raise awareness by following or liking their facebook, twitter, and instagram.
Contributors will receive some awesome eco-friendly bamboo products in return for their greatly appreciated support! This is an all-or-nothing campaign, meaning that if they don't raise the money they need, contributors will not be charged. BamBoost needs your help to raise $20,000, which will be used towards:
- Buying bulk inventory of bamboo-fiber health and hygiene necessities from manufacturing partners.
- Bulk printing of age-appropriate curriculum books from manufacturing partners.
- Rental of a distribution center in Brazil.
- Shipping of products to our distribution center in Brazil.
- Hiring of a manager and door-to-door saleswoman in Brazil.
