Days for Girls
by Juliet Allen
Last November I attended the Days for Girls conference held at the Home of Compassion in Wellington. I experienced three days with many inspiring and innovative women and one man who had an amazing story. There was a very interesting video link with Celeste Mergens in the USA. Celeste is the founder of Days for Girls and is a truly amazing, energetic and inspiring person.
One person told of when distributing Days for Girls kits in Kaitaia, a woman asked for two kits, saying that she was so grateful to have a Christmas present for both of her two daughters.
Auckland East Inner Wheel has been sewing for Days for Girls for seven years.
Days for Girls kits are now being included in the Rotary Emergency Response Kits.
