PACK MENSTRUAL HYGIENE KITS FROM HOME
ABOUT PERIOD PROMISE:
Periods are a fact of life. Menstruation products are a basic necessity, but if you’re living in poverty – or vulnerable in other ways – access to tampons, pads, cups or menstrual underwear can be challenging. There’s often a silence around periods and period poverty – it’s a matter of health, dignity and social isolation that we simply can’t ignore. The Period Promise campaign by UWHH mobilizes local citizens to be a part of the solution – getting products into the hands of those who need them most, and advocating for change in the community.
ABOUT THE PROJECT:
Create menstrual hygiene kits that UWHH will distribute to agencies serving folks in need of period products. The next time you visit the supermarket or pharmacy, purchase a variety of menstrual hygiene products - pads, tampons and liners of varying absorbencies – along with a box of resealable plastic bags. (You could also order products online, in advance.)
Each kit should contain a variety of products in different absorbencies. For example: 3 overnight pads, 5 super tampons, 3 regular tampons, 3 liners.
