Sam Tabar works as a lawyer and financial analysts in New York. With his connections, he has been able to make a desirable living for himself. However, he understands it is not just about himself, which is why he tries to do whatever he can in his power to help others out who are less fortunate. This is especially the case regarding women in third world countries. He realizes that women in poorer nations are often some of the worst treated people on the planet, even though they need to often do more to maintain a home. In order to help make life at least a fraction easier for these women, Sam Tabar has assisted with the fundraising of several different start up groups and companies, most of which aim to improve these lives in different ways.
One of the most recent startup companies Sam Tabar has invested in and worked with is the group THINX. Around the world, women are often forced to not only maintain the household but go to school, work and take care of chores. However, during their menstruation period, they are unable to care for themselves with hygiene products as women in more industrialized nations. Because they are unable to afford these basic items such as pads and tampons, the women must remain home from school and from work. This is valuable time out of school and money out of their pockets simply because they are unable to purchase disposable items such as these hygiene products. That is where THINX comes into play.
What THINX does is produce washable garments that can be used by women during menstruation. The items can absorb everything that is necessary and then can be washed. This way, the women do not need to toss anything out and can reuse the cloth clothing additions for the foreseeable future. By receiving several of these items, women around the world, such as poor African nations, are able to go to school and to work without running into problems of not being able to stay on top of their education or of the money they bring into the household. Sam Tabar understands that while it might not seem like much to some, the ability for a woman to stay in school and continually go to work is often the difference between moving on with their lives and being forced to remain in their current way of life.
