Period Poverty. If you don't know what this is, then chances are you haven't experienced it and that's okay. With that being said, there are people around the world that don't have access to feminine products. This means that young girls sometimes miss school, or maybe there are embarrassing moments, or maybe people lose days of work.
This cause is especially important to us. Victoria Champion, our CEO experienced period poverty when her son was younger. As a single mom, Victoria took on free bleeding as a way to get through the day. Did it hinder things? It absolutely did. Victoria often had to choose between diapers, milk, or tampons.
Now, one of our focuses is to work on period poverty in our community. We know that the need for feminine supplies is vital to the success of our communities. We often donate supplies to the women's shelters, outreach programs, and food banks.
If you would like to help you can check out our fundraiser on facebook, etransfer to email@example.com or donate physical supplies(pick up can be arranged by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org). Also, we encourage people when they donate to food banks to throw in a box of tampons, a menstrual cup, or pads.
Remember that if you are the one menstruating and you couldn't afford to buy supplies, how would you feel?
