Light Bladder Leakage, LBL, the spritz. No matter what you call it, one in three women experience common little leaks that can be triggered by everyday occurrences like coughing, sneezing, laughing and exercise. Even more surprising is that many women who experience LBL use feminine care products or nothing at all to manage their LBL because they don’t know there are solutions designed specifically for it or because they don’t think incontinence products are for them.  But that’s all going to change, thanks to Poise!

Poise has launched new, shockingly thin and surprisingly absorbent Poise Microliners, featuring SAM (Super Absorbent Material). The thinnest liners in the light incontinence category, Poise Microliners are designed specifically for LBL and stay three times drier than period liners to help women manage their LBL with confidence.

MMC is supporting the launch of new Poise Microliners with a mix of traditional and digital tactics to encourage women to meet SAM (Super Absorbent Material).

Changing Our World, an Omnicom partner and fundraising consulting firm to nonprofit organizations, corporations, private foundations, and philanthropists, interviewed MMC’s Kristen Tully recently about MMC’s partnership with She’s the First.   In the article, Kristen discusses how the strategic partnership between MMC and She’s the First bolstered both our missions.

She’s the First, founded by former magazine editor Tammy Tibbetts, sponsors girls’ educations in the developing world with the goal of creating first-generation graduates. MMC for a Cause has dedicated our philanthropic efforts as an agency to the goal of raising money to these young female scholars.  This includes numerous fundraising efforts throughout the year, such as bake sales, yoga sessions, company-wide jeans days, kickball games, and raffles. The goal was to support 30 educations. But last year MMC raised $25,000, which funded a total of 43 educations.
