Shelley Pasnik: Supporting the Life Trajectories of Children around the World
Shelley: Wonderful to have time with you, Spiffy! There is growing interest in investing in the early years—and for good reason.

Claire Coder: Ensuring Everyone Has Access to Period Products

Claire Coder: Ensuring Everyone Has Access to Period Products
Claire: Glad to be with you, Spiffy! Aunt Flow is on a mission to ensure every person has access to free, high-quality period products. It’s safe to say that most menstruators have had the experience of getting their period in public unexpectedly without a tampon or pad on hand. We shouldn’t have to rely on those clunky, coin-operated dispensers because let’s face it: who carries a quarter around these days?

I want to ensure that no one ever has to worry about having access to period products, and that’s the challenge we’re addressing at Aunt Flow.

Om Kundu: Prosperity by #SavingForWhatMatters
Om: Glad to be with you, Spiffy! For far too many, important purchases are either unaffordable or on the slippery slope of credit becoming debt. Why not "SaveAway® Now, Smile Later" to fulfill your important purchases memorably and affordably with your financial health and wellness at heart? And why not do this as part of an intelligently personalized plan that combines your auto-saving in installments with the support of friends, family, and best offers—all in ways that equally open up a wholly new channel for sellers to convert sales from customers they wouldn't have had otherwise? In this way, we can further a more perfect union where the path to prosperity becomes a human right. We can meld financial and social capital to ensure no goal is out of reach by #SavingForWhatMatters.
