First, we would like to express our greatest thanks Jessica and Betsy. They hosted a fundraiser and Packing Party for Fulfilling Destiny in San Jose.Betsy’s company, Big Pictures, donated on behalf of Fulfilling Destiny as well. We appreciate you! These donations will go a long way in supporting menstruators in our Bay Area community.
