About Us

Our mission


Feminie hygiene products are among the least frequently donated items. A reason for this is that they are very expensive. The stigma around period products creates humiliation when asking for feminine hygiene products. We are raising up a generation that is erasing shame and voicing its needs. We aim to supply this generation with the basic necessity of feminine hygiene products. As a grassroots organization, we directly see the positive effect of our fundraising and the impact that free feminine hygiene supplies can have on the community.
