In my working life as a blogger I come across loads of products, some I share and some I don’t. The best thing though is when I get to share products AND make a difference. Creating change, raising awareness and making a difference really matters and if you have the opportunity to do any or all then I say grab it with both hands and enjoy the ride.
Now for regular readers of Styling Curvy you would have heard me sing the praises of Aussie label Modibodi before. The first time I ever saw this product I was all like ‘freakin genius!’. Knickers with a built-in absorbency pad to catch the overflow of whatever fluids. I know I know, fluids and undies and va-jay-jays are a strange topic but girlfriend, you know I don’t shy away from the topics that matter. Let’s face it, as women we all have a vagina, at some stage in our lives we have menstruated, maybe even had that dreaded overflow or heavy flow that stopped us wearing white jeans. Am I right?
It doesn’t stop there though does it? I mean I’ve had a couple of kids and that ‘flow’ that they talk about after delivering a freaking watermelon from my vagina or guts (I had both) is all together something else. Then there’s the wee that escapes when I laugh/sneeze/do sit ups and of course having no thigh gap isn’t a walk in the park in summer…catch my drift? Hello river of sweat!
Modibodi and Styling Curvy partner to create change.
Modibodi have got you (and me) covered. But what about women without access to some of the luxuries we take for granted? Women who for whatever reason can’t shower whenever they damn well please. Women who have limited funds and sometimes have to make a choice between bus fare or eating and buying quality sanitary wear?
Look, we all know that some sanitary wear brands just don’t cut the mustard, sure they do the bare basics and have functionality but we all know there’s quality and there’s quality. When faced with limited funds some women have to make tough choices in the sanitary aisle, choices that can leave them feeling less than confident. We all know I’m about MORE confidence right?!
So, when Modibodi wanted to collaborate with Styling Curvy again I made a choice. I decided that I wanted to make a difference to the lives of women doing it tough. The good news is you can all have in on this too…YOU GET TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
We all need undies and Modibodi make undies with confidence so why wouldn’t you want them covering you (on all bases)? Now when you order your Modibodi undies you can also give back to women in our community.
The Styling Curvy community can make a difference.
I am super excited and proud to announce #sharethepair initiative. The aim is to raise 100 ‘virtual pairs’ of Modibodi undies for the women of Catherine House. If we raise 100 pairs then Modibodi will match your awesome efforts with another 100 pairs! That’s 200 pairs of undies with confidence that can go to women in need, women seeking safety and care from the awesome team at Catherine House.
This means that when the staff at Catherine House take in a woman fleeing domestic violence or homelessness they can offer her a pair or two of Modibodi undies that will fit perfectly plus have an extra confidence layer. Now that’s gotta make us ALL feel good. Sometimes it’s the small things that can make a big difference.
Could you imagine arriving at a homeless shelter? I can’t, but I’ve been to visit Catherine House and the setup and staff are pretty amazing. However, we all know that organisations like Catherine House are desperate for extra funding and luxuries like knickers just aren’t available to hand out to women who pass through the doors. With your help we can make this tough time a little easier.
So how can you make a difference?
1. SHOP, I know you’re good at it, Modibodi will match ‘pair for pair’ any virtual pairs purchased. All you need to do is hit the LINK HERE and purchase as many pairs as you like for the ladies at Catherine House. Every 3 months I will personally deliver them to Catherine House. Don’t forget to have a look, you might will want to grab yourself a pair or two.
2. You can also share the shit out of the hashtag #sharethepair online. Social media is a fabulous tool for raising awareness, so let’s use the hashtag and do some good. You can take a photo of your Modibodi knickers and add #sharethepair to the caption on Instagram or Facebook, it’s like a community hug. It’s time to get creative, wear them, do an arty flat-lay, hold a pair in each hand or wear them on your head. You could also make banners with the hashtag to share the message. I can’t wait to see the Styling Curvy community embrace this. I mean, you guys have proven in the past that you can rally and do good shit so let’s keep that going hey ?
3. Please share this blog post, the more eyes on this great initiative the more women will benefit.
We’ve got six months to hit our goal of 200 pairs but I know we can smash that and hit our goal sooner, I can feel it in my waters. To kick it off I am personally going to donate TEN pairs! I’ll keep you in the loop with regular #sharethepair updates, new season releases from Modibodi including new colours, sizes and styles and more information about what Catherine House do and the difference they make in the lives of women less fortunate.
Are you In? Will you #sharethepair?
Til next time,
This is a collaboration brought to you by Modibodi. For more see my disclosure policy.
