The First Annual Power of the Pad

We invite you to the First Annual Power of the Pad: An International Day of the Girl Celebration and Fundraiser to Benefit Days for Girls International. 

Join us October 11, 2022 6:00pm – 7:00pm PST for a virtual event you won’t forget with special guest and emcee, Marli Williams.

As a global community, a virtual fundraiser is the best way to gather with our friends from around the world and celebrate International Day of the Girl. If you're looking for something special to do in honor of girls on October 11, we hope you'll join us. It will be an event to remember.


Marli is an international interactive keynote speaker, master facilitator, and play activist who has worked with organizations such as Nike, United Way, Doordash, along with many colleges and schools across the United States. Marli is the founder and director of Camp YES!™, a transformational summer camp experience that has empowered hundreds of women to say YES! to themselves. Marli’s ultimate mission is to help incredible people and organizations start taking bold action to be the leaders and changemakers they’ve always wanted to be through the power of play and cultivating joy everyday.

Prepare to be inspired and leave with a heart full of joy, hope and optimism as we celebrate International Day of the Girl with our incredible global community. 

Gather your friends and family, pour a cocktail, pop some popcorn and get ready to have some fun, Days for Girls style.

RSVP today and invite your friends. The more the merrier!

Because our work is so much more than just a pad, your attendance helps support sustainable and scalable programming in menstrual health education, advocacy, social enterprises, and humanitarian aid for women and girls in 145 countries on six continents. 

  • Education: Knowledge is power, especially when it comes to menstruation. Access to timely, accurate health information is critical to shattering the stigma around menstruation and building a more equitable world. That’s why our DfG washable pads are always paired with comprehensive menstrual health education – for women and girls, and their families and communities.
  • Advocacy: To create meaningful impact that lasts, Days for Girls pursues advocacy work that shifts social norms and creates more supportive policy environments for women and girls worldwide. From campaigning and capacity-building to cultivating strategic partnerships, our advocacy efforts are critical to shifting the menstrual health space in a way that stands the test of time.
  • Social Enterprises: At Days for Girls, we recognize that local leaders are best positioned to drive sustainable, long-lasting change in their communities. Our Social Enterprise program equips women and men with the knowledge, tools and resources they need to do exactly that! As DfG Social Entrepreneurs, local leaders are able to serve women and girls in their countries while also earning an income. It’s a win-win system that uplifts and transforms communities from the inside out.
  • Humanitarian Aid: When disaster strikes, emergency responses often under-fund or exclude menstrual health care – leaving displaced women and girls unable to meet basic needs. We are committed to closing this gap on a global scale, by providing vital period products and education to menstruating refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs). In doing so, we are also shattering period stigma, building key alliances and ensuring that menstrual health is included in partner programming; allowing us to create longer-lasting, sustainable impact in the menstrual health space.
