Hello ,

Daisy Wheels have rolled into the hands of girls in 34 states and 13 countries! 

Our breast health initiative empowers girls with knowledge about their ever-changing bodies.  Knowledge is power, and we sure do love "GIRL-POWER!" 

We are delighted and proud that our program has been implemented in these 13 countries:

Austria, Canada, England/UK, Germany, Italy, India, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, South Korea, Spain, Tunisia, and of course, the United States!

Thank you for joining us in our mission to "change the world one girl at a time!"

Hope Lives!
