Sometimes ladies we forget how much power we possess with our bodies and unfortunately sometimes that power is taken with or without our consent. Well the members of BFDC want to help take that power back!
To celebrate Women’s History Month, during the month of March BFDC will be partnering with W.O.M.E.N. (Women On Maintaining Education and Nutrition) a non-profit organization in Nashville, TN whose purpose is “to provide HIV counseling/testing/referral, support, education, and nutrition services for people infected/affected by HIV/AIDS as well as those at risk for the infection. For this “Pay It Forward” project, BFDC will be collecting NEW AND UNWORN underwear to assist W.O.M.E.N. with their campaign titled OPP or Operation Panty Power! Sounds exciting right!
About Operation Panty Power:
OPP is a campaign created by W.O.M.E.N. to empower women. The message is “there is power in your panties” and “just because I put them on doesn’t mean you can take them off.” Each panty that is collected will have a label sewn onto them with the OPP logo and W.O.M.E.N.’s contact information. When we launch and give these women these panties they will receive a message of empowerment. This is symbolic that women who have been raped, abused, etc have the power to take back what was taken from them and enables them to be empowered.
If you would like to participate in this project, please comment so we can send you further details.
Also, I encourage everyone to visit W.O.M.E.N’s website at www.educatingwomen.org
YOU DOWN WITH OPP?
YEAH YOU KNOW ME!
