Project Hygiene™ is an initiative developed to give a hand to underprivileged adolescents and teens, promoting health & wellness, as well as denouncing bullying. Every Project Hygiene event serves as a hygiene product drive and fundraiser with donations going to various 501(c) 3 organizations. Established in five (5) major US markets, Project Hygiene produces a series of programs that features live music, live performances, speakers and educators. The event was created as a unique opportunity to put a spotlight on the importance of good hygiene and how poor hygiene can affect young people, often resulting in bullying. New York City will be the 4th city to launch Project Hygiene.
Briclyn Entertainment has teamed up with Urban Architect/ We Build Culture and All Things Progressive for this initiative. Briclyn and all partnering companies share the common goal to denounce bullying, give back to the community and support the youth. Twin sisters Anshia and Anshay Tull have embarked on this endeavor to not only raise awareness, but in continuance of their commitment to the community; the sisters add, “Bullying is just wrong. A child shouldn’t ever have to worry about being bullied, because of their personal hygiene. We as adults have a responsibility to teach our youth how to properly take care of their bodies inside and out & respect for others. Providing toiletry products is just the beginning.”
